The Town

Albinen is the town that is located in a gorgeous valley at an altitude of 4265 feet above sea level. The place is a typical mountain town that has its own church and traditional Valais architecture all over the place.


According To The President Of The Town...

The town is characterised by its quietness, phenomenal views, great air quality and many hours of sunshine throughout the year. But, unfortunately, this beautiful town is threatened with extinction, as the residents are moving away and out of the countryside and into the city.

There Are Just 240 People Living There Currently

The town has just 240 people left and among these people, there are just seven kids who have to go by bus to nearby towns to attend school. The town school was shut down after families moved to bigger cities.


The Offer

The government is offering people under the age of 45 years to move into this beautiful place, as they can buy or own houses of their own in the place. The offer is aimed for couples with 2 children. They would get £53,000 to move into the town.


But There Is A Catch

If the couple decides to move out of the place, they need to repay the Government of Switzerland the entire amount before they move out.
