Twing gorge

Natural monumentFloraHistorical placeViewpoint

This deep gorge used to be a difficult passage in the trade route over the Albrun pass to Italy. Today the old track with small natural rock tunnels and rare flowers offers a spectacular landscape experience.

Until the tunnel was built between Ausserbinn and Binn (1965), the remote valley was often cut off from the outside world for weeks at a time in winter.
Now the old footpath provides a spectacular scenic route for cyclists and walkers. With its tunnels and ancient walls supporting the sides and marking the edge, it is an impressive monument to earlier times.

In summer 2010, Binntal Landscape Park began renovation work on the old Twingi road. The road, pavements, surface drainage, tombinos (manholes), dry stone walls and balustrades were all restored.
Today, the old road allows cyclists and hikers to discover a spectacular landscape. With its tunnels and retaining walls, it is an impressive reminder of a bygone era.
