Experience World Heritage at the WNF Visitor Centre

The interactive exhibition on the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage Site

The UNESCO Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch region is one of the most beautiful mountain regions in the world. A visit to the museum will never restore the strength of the imposing walls of the Bernese Alps or the majesty of the Aletsch glacier. However, a visit to the World Nature Forum is a must. In fact, only its interactive exhibition allows you to have an overview of the region and to discover this UNESCO World Heritage site with its five senses.

 

Special exhibition Traces from the ice

Traces from the ice

Under the influence of global warming, glaciers are revealing relics that have been trapped for decades, centuries or even millennia. A new scientific discipline - glacial archaeology - is collecting and studying these extraordinary remains. Over the last 40 years, numerous objects have been discovered on the glaciers of the Valais.

Exhibition duration
7 December 2022 to 16 April 2023

Highlights

No one too small to be an explorer

The visitor centre of the Unesco World Heritage Site Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch is an exciting destination for all ages. The varied exhibits encourage visitors to interact and convey 824 square kilometres of World Heritage on two floors.

Diversity - in the area as well as in the exhibition

In addition to the digital sandbox, Unescopedia and the table debate, the highlights include a Jungfrau Railway Ambassador carriage, a gondola for the "Voice of World Heritage" dialect experience and a diverse flora and fauna landscape. In addition, there are goosebump moments in the Panorama Cinema, which transports guests to the unique natural landscape of the World Heritage Site with three fascinating films.

Experience World Heritage

With the help of a cross-area POI system, visitors can collect their interests and have tips and hiking suggestions presented for their favourite excursion destinations. Our heritage's Points of Interest (POI ) also include numerous destinations and hiking trails along the BLS mountain route. The journey with the BLS therefore already offers a World Heritage experience.
