From Wiler, head towards Weissenried. The Chapel of St. George is situated in the small enchanting hamlet of Weissenried and the tranquillity and remoteness of this place invites visitors to linger a while and relax. From Weissenried, continue on to Blatten. The "Im Brand" Shrine dedicated to Saint Anthony of Padua is situated halfway along this section. In Blatten you will find timber houses clad with stone slabs, typical Valais granaries and pure, unspoilt nature with a wide range of flora and fauna. Make a brief detour into the old village of Blatten with its village oven and mill complex.
The 1:25,000 scale hiking map is your perfect companion for an unforgettable day's hiking in the Lötschental. Available from the Lötschental Tourist Information Office in Wiler or online at www.loetschental.ch/webshop
