Saffron - The Red Gold from the village

Saffron - The Red Gold from the village

Saffron has been grown on the sunny terrace of the mountain village of Mund since the 15th century. For the price of fourteen thousand Swiss Francs per kilogram.
Today, Mund is the most northern place on earth where Saffron is cultivated. Saffron is truly a precious spice – on 4.2 acres the annual harvest is a mere three kilograms! The price of one kilogram Red Gold from Mund is a stunning fourteen thousand Swiss Francs.

Our tip: Hike the nature trail in Mund and learn about the precious spice. We also recommend a visit to the local Saffron museum. End your visit by tasting some local specialties made with authentic Red Gold from Mund.
