The oldest mountain village in the high valley of Goms.

Culture, customs and activities at every corner

Reckingen is the oldest mountain village in the Goms. The oldest finds come from graves of the Hallstatt period (500 BC) and are supplemented by Celtic and Roman finds. In 1225 Reckingen was mentioned for the first time as Requinguen. Around 1266 it was founded as an independent municipality, which has been merged with Gluringen since 2004. However, the mountain village was mainly shaped by art. The church (1743-45) is the most important baroque sacral building in the Upper Valais. Whole dynasties of sculptors, bell casters and organ builders have carried their great art from Reckingen to Switzerland and the surrounding countries. In many churches, masters of organ playing still swear by the works of the Reckingen organ builders. This is shown by lovingly renovated buildings such as the sawmill, the mill, the bell foundry, the bakehouse and the washhouse, which can be visited.
