View Point Hohfluh | open from 28 April – 7 June 2019!

This spring, a special experience awaits you in the Aletsch Arena: with the Spring Awakening Package offered by Aletsch Bahnen AG, you can enjoy views of the Great Aletsch Glacier from the Hohfluh view point. And with a “Daily Special” thrown in for free, lunch is already taken care of! It’s virtually an exclusive experience in spring, because the skiers have already vacated the slopes by now and the hikers haven’t yet laced up their boots. But you’re already privy to breathtaking views of the gigantic ice flow glistening in the spring sunshine.

The Riederalp chairlift remains open from the end of the winter season until the beginning of the summer season for the Spring Awakening! This means that the Hohfluh view point is the only view point in the Aletsch Arena that is easily accessible by cable car during this time. It’s an ideal opportunity for keen sightseers or guests who are only in the region for one day. In Mörel, take the cable car up to Riederalp. From Riederalp, the chairlift whisks you up to Hohfluh, where a breath-taking vista of the Great Aletsch Glacier and the four-thousand-metre mountains of Valais await you.
