Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Valais is a land of superlatives. It is home to the Great Aletsch Glacier, the longest of its kind in the Alps. The Matterhorn is probably the world’s best known and most photographed mountain. The imposing Grande Dixence is the world’s highest gravity dam and, with a history stretching back over 1,500 years, the Abbey of Saint-Maurice is the oldest monastery in the Western world. These superlatives are well worth discovering – alongside many more highlights. Let us inspire you by showing you the many different faces of Valais!

And now!
Welcome to the magical Lötschental Valley.

You will find an autentic valley where are still inked beautiful traditions. "Tschäggättä". Ferden is 1389 meters above sea level. Our apartment (4.5-room 55m2) is in the family since 5 generations, and consists of 3 bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, bathroom and a cozy lounge, with views of the chapel of Barbara built in 1675, and on the mountain. It is located just 2 km from the beautiful ski resort of Lauchernalp. It will enchant those who seek tranquility and pure air. From our apartment many hiking trails depart and in summer you can practice mountain biking. You will find within a radius of 50 km the famous resort of Zermatt, Verbier, Saas Fee, Crans Montana.

Looking forward to welcoming you.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Welcome at the Lötschental
- the magic valley

The Lötschental is most certainly one of the most beautiful Valais valleys and nestles between the Bernese and Valais Alps in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Jungfrau-Aletsch. The valley is around 30 km long and is therefore the largest of the Valais side valleys north of the Rhone. The wild River Lonza that flows out of the Lang Glacier and meets the Rhone south of Gampel rushes the whole way down the Lötschental.

History
Lötschenpass

The people and local character have been shaped by the superb natural surroundings and the history which was influenced primarily by the valley's former isolation, and which came to an end with the construction of the Lötschbergbahn.

The opening of the Lötschberg tunnel in 1913 connected the valley to an international railway network, significantly supporting the ‘rural-to-urban’ transfer of labour. From the station at Goppenstein, a road first connected Ferden, and between 1918–20 was extended to Kippel, and in 1954
to Blatten. In 1972, a cable car to the Lauchernalp was constructed, starting extensive ski-tourism, with a further extension of ski-slopes in 2003.

The opening up of the Lötschental went hand in hand with the growth in tourism – yet in spite of tourist development, nightclubs, concrete edifices and massive buildings are simply nowhere to be found in this region.
