Rotte river is near Oberwald, a village in the Obergoms which is in the Swiss canton of Valais (Wallis).

This narrow valley known as the Grimsel Pass has been forged out by a river of melt-water sourced high in the Valais mountains west of the Furkapass and Belvedere where the Rhone is also sourced. The Rhone Glacier still exists but as it is diminishing rapidly, its melt-water is feeding the young Rhone. The Rotte river continues on to flow into Lake Geneva (Lac Léman).

Scenic and beautiful, in summertime this valley is a tranquil place to relax or an exciting place for outdoors sports such as mountain-biking, trekking, hiking and walking.


Highway 19 connects to the north with Autobahn 2 and the E35. To the south the E62 near Sierre meets Autobahn 9 for Montreaux. Northwest, via Highways 6 and 8 is Interlaken, Jungfrau and Wengen.
