Schmitte
In the land of the Walser

We are here in a place lost in the mountains between Schröcken and Nesslegg, at an altitude of just over 1300m. This region was first settled around 1300 by Walsers from the Bernese Oberland, a people who speak Walsertitsch, an archaic Alemannic dialect, which can be found in various Alpine regions such as the Goms valley in Valais and the village of Bosco-Gurin in Ticino.
