As soon as all 15 stages are completed, walkers will receive the key to the Alps and a gift at the World Nature Forum in Naters, which is the new visitor centre for the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

All information for getting to the various starting points of the different stages is available from the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch Management Centre.
