Re-opening of Pro Natura Centre Aletsch
Villa Cassel is now climate-neutral – for the sake of the glacier
High up on Riederfurka, the mountain ridge between the Aletsch Glacier and Riederalp, stands what could almost be described as a fairytale castle. Villa Cassel, originally the summer residence of a wealthy London banker, now houses the Pro Natura Centre Aletsch in the Aletsch Arena. Following extensive renovation work, the Villa is due to reopen on 12 June 2020 – now climate-neutral, with an exhibition on glaciers and climate change and the charming historic dining room in renewed splendour.
