Lötschental Legend Trail

Let yourself be spirited away into the world of myths and fairy tales.

The Lötschental Legend Trail running from the Lauchernalp mountain station to Fafleralp presents walkers with 10 different Lötschental legends, including the tale of the beautiful Countess of Schwarzsee, who must atone for her sins by taking the form of a snake. Thanks to the exciting legends quiz, the trail becomes an adventure for both young and old.

An additional highlight of this tour is the idyllic Schwarzsee. Here you can take a break and enjoy a refreshing swim. Picnic spots invite you to have a barbecue.

The RegioExpress Lötschberger takes you from Bern or Brig to Goppenstein without changing trains. From there the post bus takes you directly to the starting point of the hike.

Benefit

Benefit from the following when you purchase travel to and from the event by public transport at the same time:

  • 20% reduction on a single cableway journey Wiler–Lauchernalp.  

You can buy the special offer in the BLS Travel Centers and at the ticket counters in every Swiss train station.

If you already hold a ticket (e.g. GA Travelcard, etc.), you can also obtain the reduced leisure activity separately via the abovementioned channels.

Puzzle Trail

Lötschental Legend Trail

Surrounded by an impressive panorama, ten old Lötschental legends whisk you away into the world of myths and fairytales. The trail is suitable for children from the age of 5 and runs along a section of the Lötschental High Trail. If you scan the QR codes along the way, you can read the legends in German, French and English on your mobile phone. Those who solve the tricky legend quiz are rewarded with a small gift at the end of the hike at the Fafleralp kiosk.

From the Lauchernalp mountain station, the Legend Trail first leads to Weritzalp with its simple wooden chapel. Past the Tellialp, which invites you to enjoy Valais specialities, the trail leads to the legendary Schwarzsee lake. Here you can enjoy a refreshing swim, rest and have an idyllic picnic. The route continues leisurely to Fafleralp. From there the post bus takes you back to Goppenstein.
