Intro

A stroll through this village is the highlight of any visit to the Val d'Anniviers. The narrow, pedestrianised main street is lined with sun-blackened wooden houses adorned with hundreds of fiery red geraniums. In the cellar of the Burgher House, a white glacier wine is aged in the “Tonneau de l'Evêque” cask.

The Val d'Anniviers is a place you have to see. The well paved mountain road up by the gorge is a delight in itself, especially when the snowy mountains suddenly appear at the end of the valley.

The picturesque Valais village of Grimentz at an altitude of 1,564m belongs to the municipality of Anniviers in the eponymous valley. A tour of the village reveals all of its charms - and the Burgher House from 1550 forms the center of the village. In its cellar, a white glacier whine matures in old larchwood barrels – a speciality of the nomadic farmers of the past. Historically, this wine was only served if the bishop came to visit during the year.

The Val d'Anniviers has 100 kilometres of scenic hiking trails and biking routes. In the glacier forefield of the Moiry-glacier one can observe various geomorphological forms, as well as areas of ice and block glaciers that are covered by a lot of moraine debris. The skiing area ranges up to an altitude of 3000 meters in the winter. The offerings are complemented by a Fun Park, guided tours, cross country ski runs, a toboggan run and winter hiking trails.

Winter

The Grimentz ski slopes above Bendolla stretch along the Becs de Bosson up to an altitude of almost 3000 metres, affording stunning views over the Val d'Anniviers and Rhone Valley. Other attractions include a fun park, tours, cross-country ski trails, a toboggan run and winter hiking trails.

Summer

Discover the rich variety of fauna and flora on a walk to the Moiry Reservoir. The Moiry Glacier is one of the most spectacular in the Alps. The tongue of the glacier is an impressive witness to the climate change that is occurring at present. Grimentz and the neighbouring village of St. Jean boast more than 100 km of signed mountain bike routes, ranging from an easy beginners’ stretch to the Grand Raid race course.

Adrenaline junkies can prove their courage on a 410-meter long Via Ferrata with a shaky rope bridge and a spectacular Tyrolienne near the Moiry Reservoir Lake.
