Life in the Valais
Live where others vacation
Joining us in Visp means changing more than your employer. Moving to our region will offer you a whole new lifestyle – relaxed, healthy, close to nature.
The majority of our employees at Visp reside in the surrounding area of the Valais Canton. It is a beautiful part of the world and a paradise for winter sports, with the Alpine slopes just a short drive away. There is also hiking, running, cycling, climbing and much more in the summer. The views are incredible.
The food and wine in the region are also major attractions. This may not be a place that you would associate with grape-growing, but you will find Europe’s highest vineyards here. Some of the team even have their own vines.
The Valais is most definitely a family-friendly location. The outdoor style of living is great for kids, and there are good schools and amenities within easy reach. Plus, the cost of living is lower than in other parts of Switzerland. Whenever things do feel a little quiet, the cities of Berne (1hr) and Zurich (2hrs) are within easy reach. You could even be sipping an espresso in Milan in just over two hours.
As there are good travel links, a number of employees do choose to commute from outside the Valais. The Swiss rail network is fast and efficient, and commuting by road is also an option.
