UNESCO World Heritage

The Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are considered to be one of the most spectacular mountain landscapes in the Alps, particularly because of the impressive mountain range of which they are made up. 

With a total area of 824 square kilometers, the Jungfrau-Aletsch site covers almost all of the Bernese Alps with its monumental rock massifs that extend over the singing territory of Bern and Valais. This diversity of different landscapes and ecosystems blends into an overall picture of exceptional beauty.

The visitor center of the UNESCO World heritage is situated just 5 minutes walking distance from the Brig railway station. In the interactive exhibition you can immerse yourself in the exciting and diverse world of glaciers and high mountains, flora and fauna and alpine tourism. The Jungfrau railway car, which completed its maiden journey to the Jungfraujoch in 1912, is a highlight of the exhibition. By getting on the wagon, visitors have the opportunity to virtually experience the planned but never achieved climb to the Jungfraujoch. Another highlight of the exhibition is the large panorama cinema, in which you will experience film scenes from the UNESCO World Heritage never seen before on a 100 m2 screen. In the Jungfrau-Aletsch restaurant you can enjoy the variety of products from the World Heritage region, which are prepared and served according to original recipes.
