In addition to a wide variety of events (outdoor and cultural), since it was first set up Binntal nautre park has organised an annual cultural-culinary park hike, a LandArt exhibition, a 1 August brunch and an autumn market.
This popular art exhibition is held from mid-June to mid-October along the historical road through Twingi Gorge. Artists from Valais, Switzerland and abroad present their work. The exhibition includes Landart – country art in the true sense of the word, made from local natural materials – and installations made from other materials integrated into the surroundings. It is the reference to the landscape that counts: nature becomes part of art, and the works of art part of the landscape.
Cultural-culinary park hike
Each year on Whit Saturday, Binntal nature park takes locals and tourists on a cultural-culinary park hike to discover a different area of the park. Small groups are led by a local person who knows the park well. Hikers can not only marvel at the beautiful landscape in spring, they can also stop and enjoy culinary delights and cultural offerings, and listen to local tales about the park or be entertained by a local artist. Raclette and a delicious desert await them at the end of the hike.
1 August brunch
Binntal nature park organises a brunch each Swiss National Day, on 1 August. There is a rich all-you-can-eat buffet with products from the park: butter plait, wholemeal bread, alp cheese, Ziger cream cheese, dried meat, sausages, fried eggs, omelettes, salads, sweet pastries and cakes – at the 1 August brunch there is (almost) everything your heart desires. And as befits a birthday party, a local band provides musical entertainment.
Each year, for one day, a village square in Binntal nature park is transformed into a colourful market. Numerous exhibitors sell their products from the park and the region. You can buy fine Binner and Grengjer alp cheese, fresh vegetables, spicy herbs and other organic products, homemade jams, special breads, sweet pastries, knitted and felt products, jewellery, minerals and much more. There are also products from the Pfyn-Finges Nature Park and the Veglia-Devero Park across the border in Italy. A programme for children, food and drink and musical entertainment are, of course, an integral part of the day.
