Authentic Swiss villages still exist

As you near the top of the Val d'Anniviers in Valais you reach the picturesque village of Grimentz. It's everything you would expect of a old Swiss village with none of the Disneyland approach of Zermatt. Other than a very modern ski lift, a handful of shops and a water mill there isn't really anything here other than the old village. And it's all the better for it.

Aside from its natural allure, Grimentz boasts a well-preserved historic center, showcasing traditional Swiss chalets with wooden facades and stone roofs. Strolling through the narrow, cobbled streets evokes a sense of stepping back in time, with the village's authenticity and heritage intact.

Grimentz offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, making it an ideal destination for those seeking relaxation and a connection with nature. Its blend of alpine charm and cultural richness makes Grimentz a gem in Switzerland.
