Bürchen

The Valais mountain villages of Unterbäch, Bürchen and Eischoll are situated on a sun-drenched terrace high above the Rhone Valley. These small family resorts in the region of Augsbord are a walker’s paradise from spring to autumn, and a favourite family winter sports’ region in winter.
There are fabulous views from this sunny high plateau, situated on the Augstbordhorn at an altitude of about 1200 m. It is accessible from Visp and Turtmann by road and cable railways run from Raron to Eischoll and Unterbäch. On the opposite side of the Rhone Valley towers the imposing Bietschhorn. Thanks to their central location in the Upper Valais, these holiday resorts are ideal for excursions in the Valais.

The resort of Bürchen, also known as ‘Birkendorf’ has devoted itself entirely to the birch trees, after which it is named.
