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 village and its many hamlets was founded in 1290, but was first documented in 1305. Together with Täsch it belonged to the municipality of Naters until 1552, at which point it became part of the municipality of Visp. The name Randa probably comes from the word "Rand" meaning border. The extended Baroque church, built in 1717, is a real gem.
To see Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, France and Italy all at the same time - this can be accomplished from the 2,502-meter-high Säntis. The highest mountain of the Alpstein region is the starting point and destination for mountain tours, hikes and ski trips.
The Diemtigtal, winner of the 1986 Wakker Award, is an idyllic, 16-km long side valley of the Simmental Valley, which is noted for its natural beauty. There are many offers, which are compatible with sustainable tourism, all of them ideal for families and vacationers in search of rest and relaxation.
