Charming and romantic: Only a few minutes drive (2km) from Fiesch, right at the back of the basin lies the municipality Fieschertal – a pretty, charming village with 7 hamlets. The Fiescher Glacier at the foot of the Finsteraarhorn Mountains stretches to the Jungfrau Mountains high over the village. The highest railway station in Europe! You think that’s not possible? Well then here’s the answer to the puzzle: Fieschertal is the 7th largest commune in Switzerland, because the Fiescher Glacier and a large part of the Aletsch Glacier belong to Fieschertal. And so, the mountain railway station of the Jungfraubahn at the top of the Jungfraujoch is situated on land which belongs to Fieschertal.
