Hé! WELCOME. NEED A GUIDE?
If you can't do it all and have to choose
where to go, here's a TOP 10 of the things
you really must see or do.
The Saint-Léonard underground lake, to see the largest such lake in Europe.
The quartiers (historic districts) of Sierre, to walk through them and learn about the history and significance of transhumance.
THE ARCHITECT OF TASTE
The Restaurant Didier de Courten, for its 19 points in the Gault&Millau guide and 2 Michelin stars. A true architect of taste, Didier de Courten constructs his dishes in three dimensions (texture, flavour and emotion) to give you a totally unique gastronomic experience.
THE WINE SHOP
The wine shop at the Château de Villa, for the hundreds of wines to taste and for its sunny, flower-filled terrace.
The Lac de Géronde, for the walk around it, the harmonious landscape of lake, hills and vineyards, and (in summer) for a little trip to the Petits Lacs or the Bains de Géronde.
The Happyland amusement park, to have a great time with your children.
THE NATURE PARK
The Pfyn-Finges Nature Park, to discover the incredibly diverse fauna and flora there, in ponds, on hillsides, or by the wild Rhône.
THE WINE TRAIL
The wine trail between Sierre and Salgesch, for a pleasing combination of culture (Wine Museum, Espace terroirs, and 80 information boards), walking (views of the Les Bernunes vineyard and the Raspille pyramids, and from the Clos de Schachtalar), and gustatory pleasure (Château de Villa, the Espace terroirs and the wineries along the route).
The SMC funicular railway that runs from Sierre to Crans-Montana, to enjoy a 360-degree view over the Valais Alps and the Rhône valley.
A bike ride along the banks of the Rhône, to enjoy the picturesque view of La Brèche lake and the 7th hole of the Sierre golf course.
