Matterhorn & Swiss old wooden buildings in upper Findeln. Sunnegga Express, Zermatt, Switzerland.
In Findeln (Findelen), admire the Matterhorn and authentic Walser houses, barns, and stores built of larch timber blackened by the sun, above Zermatt, in the Pennine Alps, Switzerland, Europe. The Walser people are named after Wallis (Valais), the uppermost Rhône valley, where they settled from the 900s in the late phase of the migration of the Alamanni (confederation of Germanic tribes) crossing from the Bernese Oberland. From Zermatt, hike the Five Lakes Trail from Sunnegga Express funicular. Although especially nice for families, the 5-Seenweg loop walk is aesthetically marred with ski slope infrastructure throughout (5 dammed artificial lakes, power lines, lifts, dusty roads, snow-making sprinklers, etc). Visually, the most aesthetic features are the old wood buildings in upper Findeln, and the reflecting lakes of Grindjisee and Stellisee.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
