Greina Plateau

The Greina Plateau (Plaun la Greina) is a unique, Alpine tundra located between the cantons of Graubünden and Ticino, at an elevation of 2200 meters. It can only be reached by foot from five different starting points in Graubünden and Ticino and has therefore remained an intact jewel.

The Greina Plateau lies between the cantons of Graubünden and Ticino. Even as early as the Roman era, important routes across the Alps led through this region. The plateau has remained an untouched jewel because it is still only reached on foot.

"Col-des-Roches" Cave Mills

If brooks and rivers run only sluggishly above ground, hydropower is nearly impossible to harness. That is why the inhabitants of the valley of Le Locle began to use subterranean streams. This is how the cave mills of "Col-des-Roches" arose.

Augstbord cheese-makers – demonstration dairy

180 tonnes of raclette cheese are produced every year at the modern demonstration dairy in Turtmann. The milk comes from cows from the surrounding area. You can watch from a platform on the first floor to see how this is then turned into cheese – the master cheese-maker allows you to peep into the "Chessi" from there. If you book in advance, you can enjoy a raclette meal at the dairy.
