The area of the Grimsel Pass marks the eastern boundary of the World Heritage Region. From the Grimsel Hospice on the mountain pass of the same name, a footpath leads along the north side of Lake Grimsel through an exciting moorland landscape to the Aare Glaciers.
Creating electricity from water is wonderful technology: hidden in the mountains, built for generations and absolutely safe. A pleasure for visitors to experience.
A hike along the old trading route between the Historic Alpinhotel Grimsel Hospiz and the Hotel and Nature Resort Handeck takes you through some lovely terrain and also some of the most mineral rich.
