Discover history

Crans-Montana is a destination that is full of history and Valais folk traditions. Culture can be admired, savoured and shared here in all its forms. The many museums, festivals, exhibitions and galleries represent just a few of the examples of cultural diversity that the region offers. Music, from folk to classical, via electro, is also a highlight, with lots of concerts, events and festivals all year long. A variety of quality cultural stakeholders meet regularly in order to offer visitors and inhabitants of the region a varied, quality cultural offering.

There is the Fondation Opale, that aims to install a permanent dialogue between Aboriginal and Contemporary Art, not just through exhibitions, but also through workshops, meetings and publications, or Crans-Montana Classics, and the wealth of their annual programming which promises a whole range of beautiful concerts, via the huge variety of cultural events proposed by Swiss Made Culture, and not forgetting the enriching conferences from Montagn’Arts, and many more.

Culture is also however about the popular culture of a region with a very strong identity, in the heart of the Alps, in the canton of Valais. You can see this enriching heritage at the Musée du Grand-Lens, by visiting the Château de Vaas, or by exploring the Colombire Ecomuseum. And as Crans-Montana is tucked away in the very heart of Valais, you cannot stay here without considering the importance of wine in this region where vines climb the slopes along the mountainsides. Guides are also available to better capture the soul of the Haut-Plateau region, whilst enjoying fascinating and informative hikes.
