The Wandfluhhorn rises as the highest peak in the valley, while the view sweeps across the side valley towards Maggia. The best views of this scenic beauty can be enjoyed from the Alps and peaks above the village.

Bosco Gurin

Bosco Gurin is the only German-speaking municipality in the southern canton. The village is characterized by the original Walser houses, built of wood and stone, as well as the characteristic barns that surround the village center. The village and its inhabitants are a living legacy of the alpine “Walser” population, who moved to the valley from the Valais over seven hundred years ago.

A trip to Gurin is a special experience. Shopping in the tiny supermarket or in the local bakery is just as much a part of the atmosphere as a visit to the oldest house in the village, which was built in 1386 and now houses the “Guriner Walserhaus” folklore museum. Here you can immerse yourself in the history and culture of the region and learn more about the traditional life of the Walser people.

Bosco Gurin is a place that captivates visitors with its picturesque beauty, fascinating culture and impressive alpine ambience. A visit to this mountain village promises an unforgettable experience and a journey into the past.
