This building in the shape of a tower is the oldest still inhabitated building in Visp. It was originally called Lochmatterturm and dates back to the 12th and 13th century. In the 13th and 14th century it was inhabitated by the Meiers.

It's best if you walk around the building as it is much more impressive from below, when you can see it sitting on the rock. A big redwood tree is growing beside it.

Directions: From St. Martiniplatz keep going in direction Zermatt and take the small alley immediately after the St. Martins church to you right.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
