Landschaftspark Binntal - No other alpine region presents such a varied and unique mineral richness as the Binn Valley.

A huge diversity of minerals was formed in a small space in Binn Valley thanks to the different types of stones with their diverse chemical compositions and contact zones.

In summer professional guides offer organised mineral excursions.
For more information about these excursions in the Binntal Landscape Park go to the regional mineralists’ Websites:
