Pilgrimages (several dates)

The Lötschental has a total of 54 chapels, churches and shrines waiting to be discovered by visitors. At the tourist office in Wiler or online under www.loetschental.ch/brochures you can obtain a colourful broschure with six circular walks.

Especially the baroque Chapel of Mariä Heimsuchung (Visitation of Our Lady) in Kühmatt is the destination of regional pilgrimages. Kühmatt, situated at 1,633 metres above sea level, is one of the most impressive places of grace in the valley. Therefore, on September 27th, 2015 there will be a big valley procession from Blatten to Kühmatt. It starts at 2.00pm at the church in Blatten. After the arrival in Kühmatt the mass starts.
