On the walk through village testimonies like penitence crosses and typical houses are telling their stories.
The Kleinwalser Valley is known not only for its unique landscape. The historical background of this high-Alpine valley, full of variation, is reflected in interviews with contemporary historical witnesses which are recorded in the Walser Cultural Walking Tour. For instance, on a stroll around the village of Mittelberg you can discover the Uusrüafschdei, which was a traditional oral messaging system used up into the 20th century. Sinners and penitence crosses, chapels as protection from avalanches, Walser legends and building culture in its purest form – all this will accompany you on a journey through history.
We wish you much enjoyment on this walk – under the motto "aachoo, düürschnuufa, loosloo" – arrive, breathe deeply, let go.
