UNESCO World Heritage
Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch: The UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most spectacular high mountain landscapes in the world.
Diversity worth protecting
The UNESCO World Heritage Site Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch covers an area of 824 km2. 85 percent of the area lies at an altitude of over 2000 m above sea level. The World Heritage label is the highest distinction awarded to a natural landscape - but at the same time also an obligation to preserve it for the next generation.
On the way in the World Heritage Site
On themed trails, hikes lasting several hours, leisurely strolls or digital puzzle and adventure trails: discover the UNESCO World Heritage at first hand in the summer months.
In two days over the Aletsch Glacier
Hike across the largest glacier in the Alps in the company of an experienced mountain guide. Or climb the Finsteraarhorn, the largest peak in the Jungfrau Region. Here you will get competent advice.
Cooperation with Grindelwald
In 2001, the area around the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau and the Great Aletsch Glacier received the designation of Natural Heritage. Grindelwald and UNESCO are now intensifying their cooperation on three levels.
