The Binn valley will surprise you at every step. Cuisine of the world and high gastronomy in a mountain village. A remarkable architecture in an original landscape.
First came the smugglers. They borrowed the old mule track to reach Italy. Then it was the turn of prospectors. Indeed, the Binn valley was long known for its richness in minerals.
And finally came the tourists. Witness the Ofenhorn hotel, rich in tradition, which dates from the time of the pioneers of alpine tourism.
Today, this Valais side valley, accessible by an almost secret narrow gorge, is primarily known for its culture (Ernen, village music), tulips (in Grengiols) and its amazing cuisine (in some mountain inns and 2 restaurants distinguished by Gault Millau in Ernen).
