Planplatten – Alpen Tower

In the summer of 1998, a state-of-the-art gondola replaced the 2-seater chairlift Mägisalp – Planplatten, which dates back to Gründerzeit at the end of the 19th century. A year later the construction began on the panoramic restaurant Alpen Tower.

The Sustenhorn, Grimsel region and Finsteraarhorn on the one side, with Lake Brienz, the Rothorn and Jura in the far distance on the other. A beautiful vantage point to the east of the Bernese Oberland.

Plaine-Morte - Glacial Plateau

Plaine-Morte, the “dead plain” above Crans Montana, is located at the border of Valais and the Bernese Oberland, between Wildstrubel, Weisshorn und Gletscherhorn. The plain is covered by a glacier plateau and offers winter sports fun all year round.

The glacier west of the Wildstrubel is flat and in places as much as 200 meters thick – draining direction Lenk predominantly in the Bernese Oberland, but also in the Rhone Valley of Valais.

Sulwald – something different

The almost nostalgic aerial cable car whisks guests in four minutes from Isenfluh (1084 meters) to Sulwald (1520 meters).

From the sunny Isenfluh mountain village an almost nostalgic red cable car brings guests up to the Sulwald hamlet.
