POI details

Away from the ski slopes, the beautiful path leads you from the village centre past the sports centre. Follow the road that leads you along the edge of the forest to the idyllic mountain lake. For the way back to Grächen, you can choose the somewhat steep, shorter path through the forest with a detour to the Lourdes Grotto.
From Visp you take the train to St. Niklaus. There you change to the bus, which gets you to Grächen every half hour. On weekends a direct bus operates from Visp to Grächen.
