Track description

The route starts at the church in Blatten, dedicated in 1985 to Our Lady of the Rosary. Blatten separated from the valley parish church of Kippel in 1898, and following the demolition of the Neo-Gothic church built in 1877, there is now a new contrasting building in the typical style of a Lötschental mountain village. When visitors enter the church, their gaze is guided towards the Rosetta window. A statue of Mary stands beside the altar that could be dated back to the 15th century. Outside again, you now follow the contemplation boards erected along the edge of the path. The Shrine to Saint Rita and the Chapel of Saint Wendelin can be found in Eisten and, following a gentle ascent past fields and barns, we arrive at the "Am Gryn" Shrine, which was constructed in memory of the victims of avalanches. The pilgrimage chapel of Kühmatt can be seen from here. 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. The present chapel was constructed under Pastor Bartholomew Indergassen between 1646 and 1663. You can return from Kühmatt every hour using the post bus or on foot.
