Fiesch - Fiescheralp - Aletsch Arena
The Fiescheralp at 2212 metres above sea level, also known as “Kühboden” (Cows’ floor), is part of the car-free Aletsch plateau. Despite some modern chalets and hotels, the Fiescheralp is a truly authentic alp. In no time you leave behind the everyday world and truly relax amid stunning peaks and pristine alpine meadows.
Traditional old wood houses of the Valais, chalets and hotels welcome you in the villages down in Fiesch, creating a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. With the cable car you reach the mighty Aletsch Glacier : 23 kilometres in length and 1.8 kilometres on average in width. A massive 27 billion tons of ice spread out over an area of roughly 100 square kilometres. The Aletsch Glacier originates near the world-famous area of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau and moves downwards to the Rhone valley.
In 2001 the Aletsch-Jungfrau region of the Swiss Alps was included in the UNESCO list of world natural heritage sites. Located between heaven and earth: the valley and the peaks above, you will enjoy the sunny terraces of the Fiescheralp.
The Fiescheralp is also the home of Swiss ski-champion Daniel Albrecht. It was on the local slopes where he learnt to ski. In
2013 the Fiescheralp served as the venue for the Swiss Ski Championships.
