Summer and winter

The Binntal in the Upper Valais is a wild and romantic side valley of the Goms. The valley is an Eldorado for nature lovers and especially for mineral hunters. But hikers will also find many rewarding destinations in the unspoilt landscape of this secluded valley.

Since the 18th century, the Binntal valley, which branches off southwards from Goms at Fiesch, has been known for its large number of different minerals. Many first discoveries have been made in the Binntal. If you walk through the valley with open eyes, you will not only discover an extraordinarily diverse flora and fauna, but with a little luck you may also take home a colorful stone or even a crystal. The rocks typical of the Binntal are presented along the geology trail from Imfeld to the Lengenbach mineral mine. The mineral mine also attracts families whose children are mainly looking for "fool's gold".
