The Southern Alpine tulip is as rare as winning the lottery. Not so in Törbel. The extremely rare tulip feels at home in the sunny mountain slopes of the Moosalpregion. With the first mild rays of May sunshine, small golden flower heads open up on several mountain meadows and bring the first splashes of color to nature. We take a closer look at the southern alpine tulip.

In 2016, Patrick Gruber and colleagues from the Lions Club launched the "Bärgüf" charity velo race. The fundraising event from Stalden via Törbel to Moosalp supports people with cancer and is a permanent fixture on the Upper Valais agenda. Corona does not allow large events to be held.

It is the old familiar smell of leather that makes many a "terbji" reminisce when he enters the small shoemaker's shop in the heart of the village. Back when there seemed to be so much future and so little past.
