Kleine Scheidegg-Männlichen

Jungfrau Region

The UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch stands out with the diversity of its features and boasts some of the most spectacular mountainous scenery in the Alps. The Jungfrau-Aletsch was the first region in the Alps to be declared as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO Committee on 13 December 2001. The list of World Heritage Sites includes places of outstanding cultural and natural heritage that enjoy special protection. The Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage Site is marked not just by its outstanding natural beauty, but also by the many glaciers and moraines that bear witness to the past ice ages. It’s the juxtaposition of Mediterranean steppes, century-old landscapes and high-Alpine ecosystems that give rise to the variety of the scenery.

The Alpine topography of the Jungfrau Region offers little space for Nordic cross-country skiing. The views of the mountains, though, are all the more spectacular. In the Lauterbrunnen valley the 12 km track from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg leads along the Weissen Lütschine River and frozen waterfalls as far as the Upper Lauterbrunnen valley (classical and skating).


Get your sledge at the summit station and "go for snow" on the exciting run from Männlichen to Holenstein. With numerous hairpin bends, some pretty steep passages and lovely long glides, the stretch challenges your sledging skills while promising a feast of fun. The run follows the road to Itramen and crosses the ski piste several times - so a certain amount of care is needed. When snow conditions are good, you can sledge right down to Grindelwald. Sledging time 3/4 hr.
