In the near of the mill (Chalet «Zur Alten Mühle») is a beautiful nearly snow safe (artificial snowing if needed) skiing area on 1700 meters (5666 ft) to 2560 meters (8524 ft) of the Bellwald Sportbahnen A.G. which is slope upwards reached on foot in 15 minutes.

The bus ticket (Sportbus) is included in your ski ticket.

Also the skiing area Aletsch-Arena, Belap, Zermatt, Crans-Montana and Saas-Fee are in a day trip near...

On a part of the ski run of the Bellwald Sportbahnen it is possible to go sledging (with your own or with a rented one).
You can take the chairlift and let you bring to the top.

The are also in the summer very interessting offers for your leisure-time activities. Further details see below...

The Chalet «Zur Alten Mühle» (To the old mill) was build in 1940.
In the first place it was a grain water mill.
In the late 1940's and 1950's it was the first time that it was converted completely to living only.
In those days far away, and alone, from the village center. Today it stands very central in Bellwald. The village supermarket Volg with bread sale of the local bakery Imwinkelried, Raiffeisen-Bank, Post (Volg) and the cable car (Luftseilbahn) Bellwald-Fürgangen are on foot about 5 minutes near.

The mill is a paradise for Bookfriends ! (look the photos; bookshelves) Here you find the peace and „gemütlichkeit“ (german word for -to feel comfortable and fine) for reading your books.
In the Winter the crackle of the wood fired stove makes the atmosphere perfect.

You search here the TV-set in vain. Fear and uneasiness of the TV channels and mugglepress and with them connected all the negatives feelings, - stay outside !
In return there is, if wished, Internet via WiFi (WirelessLan).
Today nearly everybody brings its Laptop and DVD's along...

I wish you a very pleasant stay in the mill : ) !

Other things to note:
In the total amount is the health ressort tax and guestcard included.

In the summer season one can very nicely walk.
But even with snow is a walk through a calm, snow powdered winter wonderland / forest with following stop off in a restaurant a nice plan.

In the summer at the Bellwald Sportbahnen one can take a Trottinett (french for scooter) or Mountaincar (pedal car without pedals ;) and let bring yourself uphill with the chairlift and whiz down the pistes...!

For Wanderers are the Gommer Höhenweg and the Rotten(Rhône)weg very nice trips.
Here is an extract of the Gommer Höhenweg pamphlet of the Furka Oberalp Bahn (today M.G.B.)

The Goms, the highest part of the Rhone Valley with its gem villages, the hidden treasures of art and the harmonic landscape invites to contemplative walk. The -Gommer Höhenweg- gives the look free to sun roasted villages, dreamy farms and the young Rhone, who looks like a silver ribbon which pull through the valley. In the east forms the Galenstock with its shiny old snow, in the west the pyramid of the Weisshorn the closing.

The -Rottenweg- follows on the left valley side the young Rotten (this is the name for the rhône in the upper valais) from Oberwald to Ernen.
Flower rich meadows change with shady forests. The charm of this path lies in the possibility, to visit the original valais villages with its good-looking churches.
The -Rottenweg- shows only few gradients and is down the line well placed. It's therefore suitable also for new wanderers and walkers.
Wander with measure. The Gommer Höhenweg and Rottenweg lead in short stages to the single villages with its railway stations of the Furka Oberalp (now M.G.B.). You can therefore also change on the tours easy the program and shorten or lengthen your trip...

Getting around:
Arrival with the railway (S.B.B.) via main station Brig. In Brig you change at the forecourt of the main station to the M.G.B. rack railway (Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, formerly F.O. Furka Oberalp) to the stop Fürgangen-Bellwald. There you take the cable car to Bellwald.
