Description

Along the Rotten (Rhône) we hike to Reckingen, where in the middle of the 18th century local altar carvers and painters, organ builders and bell casters built the Baroque pearl of Goms within two years with the Marienkirche. We stay at the height of the villages on the sunny slope to make a pilgrimage to the single chapel in the Ritzingerfeld. Together with the distant Weisshorn (4505 m) it is the photo subject of the entire tour. After Niederwald we leave rhone and railway line to find in Mühlebach the Heidenhaus, where Prince-Bishop and Cardinal Matthäus Schiner was born. He was a co-signatory of the ban bull against Martin Luther, Papabile, papal and imperial advisor. Over the three pillars of the Erner Galgen we find the most beautiful village in Valais with a great village square and one of the most distinguished rural townscapes in Switzerland. The mother church (St. Georg) of the lower Goms in Ernen contains some treasures, James looks fragmentarily from the side wall.
