The fastest and most comfortable way to the Aletsch Glacier


Climb aboard and admire the largest glacier in the Alps

The Great Aletsch Glacier is the centerpiece of the Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thanks to the new e-Shuttle Hexpress, even people with physical disabilities can marvel at the ice giant from the Aletschbord on Belalp. It doesn't get any faster or more comfortable than this.

The new attraction on the Belalp

The e-Shuttle runs 7 times a day during the summer season from the mountain station to the Aletschbord and back. The vehicle has room for 20 people and is therefore ideal for group and club excursions. The coaches are wheelchair accessible and designed for people with walking difficulties. The Hexpress departs every hour from July between 10:15 (from the mountain station) and 17:45 (from Aletschbord).

Details of the timetable and fares can be found here.

The Aletschbord - a magical place

Experience the power place Aletschbord on the Belalp. A unique panorama with the Great Aletsch Glacier as well as the four-thousand-metre peaks of the Valais (incl. the Matterhorn) and a rich natural and cultural history await you. Nowhere else can you experience the changes in nature since the last ice age more impressively. The historic Hotel Belalp at the Aletschbord is a contemporary witness of the touristic development of the Belalp in the last 160 years.
