In the deep forest in the middle of the blind valley there is a small house.
A witch‘s cottage to be precise. The little witch girl Veronika-Shyla-Zentiara lives in it. Her friends and neighbours call her Vero for short. Vero is 105 years old and, like all witch children, goes to school every morning. This spring, Vero was bored and had an idea! She dashed around with her broom and hid witches‘ gold pieces everywhere between Naters and up to Belalp at her favourite places.
Collect the witches‘ gold pieces and become a witch student, witch trainee or even a witch master. After the search, you can take the treasure map back to the tourist office in Blatten or to the WNF in Naters and collect your reward.
The secret of the witch's pass
Our guests, young and old, can obtain a witches‘ pass from the Blatten-Belalp Tourism counter in Blatten, from the World Nature Forum in Naters or from their hotelier. With the witches‘ pass, the hidden pieces of witches‘ gold can be collected on various hiking trails troughout the Blatten-Belalp area by perforating the witches‘ pass. Depending on the length of the hike, a certain number of the gold pieces can be found.
