Take a walk on the Swiss wild side

To begin your walk on the Swiss wild side, first bring yourself to Canton of Valais, southern Switzerland.

If you drive there by car from the northern side, you will probably get stuck in your car on a train wagon like this, at the entrance of the Lötschberg tunnel.

20 minutes after shaking in the darkness (give some thought to the 116 workers who died drilling this hole in the mountain in 1908, several corpses still buried in the tunnel) you find yourself on the other side, in Goppenstein. Read more…

Tell me the old stories

Tell me the old stories

of cracking winters and wet springs,

when our arms were nests of life,

our shadows were roofs to flocks,

our colors were green and red and yellow.

Tell me the old stories our strong fibers now forgot.

Via Mala

In 1967 the road tunnel of San Bernardino allowed all-year round traffic between North and South of the Swiss Alps. Earlier, the Via Mala (in Latin, meaning bad path) was the only cross-way available in the area to carriages, horses and later cars. Opened by the ancient Romans, upgraded with two bridges in 1738, nowadays Via Mala is a spectacular pit stop while driving between Canton Grisons and Ticino.

South of the town of Thusis, the Via Mala gorge slightly opens.

Hidden

Large gardens and thick forests are landmarks to several metropolitan areas of Japan. Hidden in these peaceful greens, Japanese tradition unfolds.
