World of Ice on the Bettmerhorn

The Bettmeralp Trains welcome you in the Bettmerhorn's world of ice from mid-June to mid-October.

High above the Aletsch Glacier, the focal point of the Unesco World Heritage - Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch, you will find the Bettmerhorn's world of ice.

Plateau de Diesse – Tessenberg

The high plateau between the Bielersee lake and Chasseral, at around 800m altitude, has been connected though a funicular railway from Ligerz to Prêles since over a century.

Grimsel gneiss and Glacial Ice

The Oberaar Lake often contains ice floes which is not further surprising given that the water comes directly from the nearby glacier.

The Grimsel area is a landscape of ancient stone and primeval forces. This pass has always been used to cross from North to South or vice-versa. It also constitutes the watershed between the North Sea and the Mediterranean and offers some spectacular hikes, ranging from easy strolls to challenging climbs on the vertical granite walls.
