Roffla Gorge (waterfall)

Inspired by the Niagara Falls, the American émigré Christan Pitschen-Melchior began to cut a path through the gorge in 1907. Seven years and 8000 explosions later, his work was done. Nowadays, a narrow path leads from the historic inn along the rocky gallery to the waterfall at the heart of the gorge. You can find out about the story of this man's lifetime's work in the local museum.

Green Andeer granite

When Abraham Conrad began extracting and processing green Andeer granite in 1906, he probably had no idea about how many things it could be used for. Today, it is used for kitchen and bathroom surfaces, floors, facades and many other purposes. On request, groups can be shown round the granite works.
