The Wine Walk
For those who love wine, the Wine Walk is a fantastic day hike in Crans Montana with lovely views of the surrounding vineyards. Winding 6.0 km through the vineyards, the Sentier viticole (Wine Trail) connects the two venues of the Valais Wine and Vine Museum: the Château de Villa in Sierre and the Maison Zumofen in Salquenenen. It runs along the winegrowing districts, crosses the vineyards and the natural site of the Raspille gorges. 80 explanatory signs present the vineyards from every angle.

Route Description for The Wine Walk
Setting out from the trailhead near the Villa d’en Haut, the Wine Walk will initially lead you to the southwest, before quickly bending to the northeast through Muraz. Take your time to absorb the incredible vineyard views, as you follow along the meandering path towards the endpoint of the route in Salgesch.
Getting to the The Wine Walk Trailhead
To get to the Château de Villa (Villa Castle) by car, take the exit of the A9 motorway (Rhône motorway) called "Sierre ouest". At the motorway exit, turn left and follow the signs for "Sierre".
