The Binn Valley is Switzerland's treasure chest, where most mountain crystals are found. The area therefore attracts guests from everywhere in the world eager to hunt glittering crystals. Mt Eggerhorn is the best vantage point in the area. From here, see the Bernese Alps, the Goms Valley and even the Aletsch glacier.
Visitors can explore a rich geological diversity in the Binntal valley thanks to its exceptionally varied flora. The treasure of this valley is concealed within the mountain – nature has made the Binntal valley one of the regions of the Alps which is richest in mineral deposits.
A huge, carved squirrel welcomes children at the entrance to the magical forest. The picture book «Brüna» tells the story of the squirrel that experiences all manner of exciting adventures in the forest and encounters strange apparitions. Gnarled spruce trees and moss-covered stone blocks are ideal for an adventure playground. A fir-cone lift, tree swing, suspended bridge, gorge trails and a barbecue area are provided for use by families with children.
