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.
