Eggishorn – Aletsch Glacier
A piece of Unesco World Heritage close enough to touch, with the 23 kilometer-long "Jungfrau-Aletsch" directly in front of your eyes and stunning views that invite you to stay and ponder.
From the Fiesch village the cable car ascends to the 2212 meter-high Fiescheralp, with a second railway taking you to the ridge viewpoint. Here you enjoy 360º panorama views – although a mountain walk to the summit is still more than worthwhile and takes a mere 15 minutes.
Mountain trails lead back from the mountain station to the Fiescheralp, Märjelen lake or the Bettmerhorn. Downhill-tracks appeal to spirited mountain bikers from Fiescheralp on – or how about a paragliding taxi for an exciting breath of fresh air!
