The Val d'Anniviers is a Valaisian side-valley defined by a rich cultural tradition. The chain of authentic mountain villages with sun-blackened houses extends from Siere in the Rhone Valley to the climbers’ village of Grimentz. In the valley at the foot of several four-thousand-meter peaks, panoramic mountain tours and attractive skiing areas beckon.
The idyllic, park-like countryside of the high valley of Lenzerheide provides the perfect setting for experience-packed and relaxing holidays. In winter a varied ski region awaits winter sports enthusiasts on both sides of the valley.
It could hardly be more impressive: the monumental former abbey church, dating from the 11th century, that dominates the medieval centre of Payerne.
Siders (French: Sierre), pleasantly situated on a number of hills and nestling among vineyards, is a small town in the Valais blessed with a great deal of sunshine. Wine-growing and cultural events are both of great importance here. Thanks to its central position, Siders is also an ideal starting point for lots of excursions.
