Ranft chapel is dedicated to St Nicholas of Flüe, also known as Brother Klaus – one of Switzerland’s best-known patron saints.
The small Ranft chapel was built in 1961; a beautiful statue adorns its interior. It was ceremoniously consecrated by the parish priest, Joseph Zurbriggen, in 1961 on the feast of Christ the King in the presence of residents. A candlelit procession takes place every year on 25 September, the feast of St Nicholas of Flüe, to the Ranft chapel, where Holy Mass is then celebrated. The event draws parishioners from Täsch, Randa and Zermatt alike.
