Walking and Pilgrimages

It is no longer a secret that the Lötschental is an exceptionally beautiful hiking paradise. However, very few people know that the valley also has a wealth of chapels, churches and shrines. The Lötschental has a total of 54 chapels, churches and shrines waiting to be discovered by visitors.

Consciously take in the extraordinarily beautiful natural countryside in the Lötschental and experience these sites for contemplation in total peace along paths that have been trodden for hundreds of years - and above all rediscover something about yourself.


We very much hope that you experience a peaceful time in the Lötschental – Switzerland's magic valley!
