The Binntal (Binn valley) surprises at every turn. A world classic and award-winning gastronomy in a mountain village. World-ranking architecture in a primordial landscape. It was the smugglers who came here first. Then came the rock crystal prospectors. For the Binntal had already garnered earlier renown for its mineral wealth. And it was the tourists who arrived finally. The traditional Hotel Ofenhorn dating from the pioneering age of Alpine tourism bears testament to this. Today, this Valais side valley is primarily renowned for its culture (in the music village of Ernen), the tulips (in Grengiols) and its surprising cuisine. And naturally also for its scenery. The Binntal Landscape Reserve offers primal naturalness from the mountain peaks down to the periphery of the villages – which coincidentally are so authentic that they have earned a prize for this very attribute.
