The Bärgeri-Suone starts at the Nesselbach and is fed by it. From there it flows along the flank of the Glishorn in the direction of Brig. The Bärgeri is a very old river: it was already known in 1327. From 1930, the suone was moved to tubes. It was shut down in 1993 and only restored in 2003. Since then the Bärgeri flows again in summer over longer distances in an open canal. On two sections, wooden jugs were laid in traditional construction. Along the way you will find information boards on the history of the Suone.
