From the dam wall of the Zervreilase you have a breathtaking view to the south to the Zerfreilahorn and to the north to the Tomülhorn.

Description

Above Vals lies Lake Zervreila. The name of the reservoir comes from the mountain village of Zervreila, which was flooded in 1957. More than 50 years later, the small hydropower plant provides valuable and sustainable electricity and inspiration at the same time. The architect Peter Zumthor was inspired by the dam walls to design the Therme Vals. But also as an excursion destination a visit to the mountain lake is worthwhile. Because here the view of the mountains of Vals with the striking rock pyramids of the Zervreilahorns is particularly beautiful.
