UNESCO World Heritage

"The Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are considered to be one of the most spectacular mountain landscapes in the Alps, particularly because of the impressive mountain range of which they are made up. With a total area of 824 km2, the Jungfrau-Aletsch site covers almost all of the Bernese Alps with its monumental rock massifs that extend over the singing territory of Bern and Valais. It represents the wonderful natural beauty of the Alps".

The World Nature Forum - UNESCO Visitor Center Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch is just at fiveminute walk from the Brig railway station and offers you all the tools you need to find your way through this world heritage site. The interactive exhibition, suitable for children and adults, allows you to immerse yourself in the exciting and varied world of glaciers and high mountains, flora and fauna and alpine tourism.
