Start your winter hike in Ferden, the lowermost village in the Lötschental. The path takes you through the old village of Ferden, where you can marvel at buildings dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries. Cross to the other side of the street at the Golmbach Gallery and enjoy a leisurely hike to Kippel. The Lötschental Museum and the A. Nyfeler Gallery are both worth visiting in Kippel, the unofficial cultural capital of the Lötschental.
