People in the World Heritage Site - The film accompanies women and men who live, work or pursue their hobbies in the World Heritage Site.

Experience World Heritage - The latest work by Christoph Frutiger shows that restrained, careful and cautious use of the World Heritage area is not a contradiction in terms.

In the carriage, visitors have the opportunity to virtually experience the planned but never realised southern approach to the Jungfraujoch.
