Overview
More
Die Welt an Grimsel und Susten ist eine Landschaft voller Geschichten und Schatze. Einst hinterliessen die Saumer ihre Spuren in diesen Bergen. Heute produzieren die Kraftwerke Oberhasli mit neun Kraftwerken aus der Kraft des Wassers elektrischen Strom fur eine Million Menschen. Die Symbiose zwischen Natur und Technik pragt den Charakter der Landschaft und gewahrt dem Menschen einen Reichtum an erneuerbarer Energie. Diese Welt bietet viel Unerhortes und Einzigartiges von Adrenalinstossen in der Senkrechten bis zu stillen Platzchen am Wasser, vom Gourmetschmaus bis zum Bauernladen.

Grimselwelt is all around hydro power. They offer great tours underground and above with cable cars. Interesting insights into waterways etc. Housing can be in one of their hotels (Handeck and Grimsel Hospiz - very good). Excellent service !
