I long for knowledge. I crave new memories of old architecture. I am looking for the sublimity of religious art. I want to hear ethereal sounds of ancient organs. I want to feel the warm wood of the sun-tanned houses. I want to experience past eras where they are still alive. I wish to fill a village theatre with my hearty laughter. I am ready to go the distance for new knowledge. I am your sense of beauty. I dream of one place: It is Goms – right before your eyes.
The mountain village Goms hosts a lot of culture and magic. You will find plenty of national and regional cultural heritage in Goms. It is not only about the big building, though.
CULTURAL MOUNTAIN VILLAGE GOMS – MOUNTAIN VILLAGE MEETS RELIGIOUS ART
The mere aspect of the ancient houses in all the villages is a cultural and arty luxury. The villages in the high valley of Goms appear more genuine in their traditional view than in any other place in the Alps. All of them belong to the Federal Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites. The oldest wooden buildings in Switzerland are located in Goms. The churches and chapels in Goms are among the most valuable achievements in Swiss baroque sacral art and architecture. It is still hard to explain how a poor rural society accomplished such artistic treasures.
CULTURAL MOUNTAIN VILLAGE GOMS – LIVE EXPERIENCE
Theme trails and guided village tours make Goms history and culture come alive. Theatre and music are an essential part of village culture. Traditional craftsmanship can be witnessed. Museums transfer past times to the present.
CULTURAL MOUNTAIN VILLAGE GOMS – CLOSE TO NATURE
Your eye craves aesthetics just as your body craves indulgence. Let your body relax in a natural environment and fill your mind with new ideas. You will find a variety of offers that will help you relax your body and soul: Kneipp trail, cultural trails, excursions and spa activities. Goms culture is more than contemplation – it is adventure.
