  • From the top of the Eggishorn in Fiesch or if you like a bit of a hike, take the cable train in Ried-Morel to Riederalp, after a 10 minute walk you get on another cabletrain called the "moosfluh" with...  more »
  • From the refuge of Riederalp follow the path through the forest of Alestch, after a few kilometers to a very easy walk we discover this gem of nature. If one has the luck we fear also observe chamois. Do family and if we can sleep one night at the hotel Rierderfurka and test a good plate valaisane or a fondue watered white Dole a true bohheur

  • Edge horns climb to the ropeway and there's contrary view from Jungfraujoch. With spectacular views of long-standing clearly. More than an hour and that view in mind was deprived. Like trekking shoes if you walk to the edge Horn was also of course from the ropeway bus stop in about 15-20 minutes walk Rocky, so should he. Sorry Guard has gone in sneakers.

  • An amazing sight, from any angle. Great view from Eggishorn, but from the middle station (Fiescheralp) you can walk though a long tunnel past Märjelensee right to the edge of the glacier.
  • One of the best places of Switzerland !
  • Absolutely magnificent view, definitely worth visiting. Lift prices aren't cheap, but it's 100% worth it for the view you get at the top.
  • Excellent panorama view! Tickets for lift really aren't cheap but what you get for the price is great.
  • OMG!!! Must go!
