Why Familie Heinen chose Binntal

If you want to spend your holidays in a historic monument, you can go to Mühlebach on a time travel in Obergoms.

Chalet Heidenhaus is a Valais house (built in 1409) in the historic Mühlebach, with the oldest village in wooden construction style of Switzerland. On the cultural path Mühlebach you will not find a museum village here at 1448 metres of altitude, but the houses are inhabited and being used. The chalet Heidenhaus was renovated in 2008 in such a way that the original character has been preserved. Here you can feel the charm of yesteryear, without having to give up the comforts of the modern day, old materials with a modern interpretation.

The decor is a mix of old and new, as well as design and quality in the details. The result is a home for people with a passion for architecture, originality and design, who are in search of fresh mountain air, peace and nature.

Perfekter Winterurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit 3 Kindern) haben die Weihnachtswoche im "Heidenhaus" verbracht und waren alle begeistert! Frau Heinen hatte uns zuvor perfekt instruiert und alles war bestens vorbereitet. Das Haus ist wirklich einmalig und bestens ausgestattet. Die Fotos können die Atmosphäre eines besonders liebevoll renovierten Hauses aus dem 15. Jahrhundert nur zum Teil einfangen. Mühlebach ist ein besonderer kleiner Ort, von dem man nicht nur in 10-15 Minuten mit dem Auto die Aletsch-Arena erreicht, sondern von dem man auch das Binntal entdecken und in das ebenso schöne Ernen spazieren kann. Uneingeschränkt weiter zu empfehlen!

Einfach nur atemberaubend

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 3 Erwachsenen und 3 Kindern für 7 Nächte im Heidenhaus. Es war einer unserer schönsten Urlaube, die wir je hatten. Das Haus ist ein absolutes Schmuckstück mit einer Geschichte, die einige hundert Jahre zurück reicht. Mühlebach ist im Sommer (wir waren in der letzten August Woche hier) sehr ruhig und verschlafen. Ideal für einen Entspannungsurlaub. Es fällt schwer wegzufahren und wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.

Herzlichen Dank für die schöne Zeit.

Car: recommended

The Valais mountain village Mühlebach at 1248 metres above sea level is an ideal starting point. Destinations for mountain and bike tours, hiking or a mule trekking are plentiful.

Explore Goms, nestled between the passes Furka, Grimsel, Nufenen, Binn Valley and the 23 km-long Aletsch Glacier.

Whether you enjoy the tranquillity drenched in the sun or engage yourself in diverse sports, the place has a lot to offer. Rock crystals in the country park Binn Valley, spas or golf course in the Goms Valley.

The Valais presents guaranteed snow in winter. A deep blue sky towers on snowy mountain forests. Discover the beautiful winter landscape on winter hiking trails or cross-country skiing on 82 km ski track.

Gorgeous slopes await you in the Aletsch region. 33 ski lifts and ski runs to over 100 km. Panoramic slopes, steep slopes, carving rides or beginners' hill fulfil every wish on Fiescheralp, Bettmeralp and Riederalp.

All base stations of the ski areas are within 10-15 minutes by car or by sportbus running regularly in winter.

Enthusiastic snowshoers find many marked trails, one of which starts right behind the house.

Music, art and culture in the neighbouring village Ernen:

The enchanting landscape of Binn Valley provides the framework for classical concerts taking place in the summer in the musical village Ernen, the neighbouring village of Mühlebach. The festival has a resonance far beyond the boundaries of Valais.

The Master courses in piano and chamber music have been attracting participants from all continents since more than 20 years. Public and the press are thrilled. 'Musical village Ernen a mecca for lovers of classical music'
