Swiss Drives: Kandersteg To Interlaken (5K Video)

Kandersteg is a high-altitude resort village in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. Trails, like the challenging Allmenalp, and a cable car head east to Lake Oeschinen.

Top Alpine Drives: Grimsel Pass In Switzerland (4K)

The Grimsel Pass is a mountain pass in Switzerland, crossing the Bernese Alps at an elevation of 2,164 metres (7,100 ft). The pass connects the Haslital, the upper valley of the river Aare, with the upper valley of the Rhône. In so doing, and as the Aare is a tributary of the Rhine, the pass crosses the continental divide between the North Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

A paved road follows the pass, running 38 kilometres (24 mi) from Gletsch to Meiringen. The road is normally closed between October and May, due to the high snowfall on the pass. As it is the only direct road pass between the cantons of Bern and Valais across the Bernese Alps, attempts are made to keep the road open as long as possible with snow ploughs. A PostBus Switzerland service uses the pass several times a day, connecting Meiringen and Oberwald.

Swiss Views: ‘Eiger Express’ Cable Car – Grindelwald


In this video, we present a spectacular panoramic journey experience of newly launched Eiger Express Cable Car, Grindelwald, Switzerland. It was launched in Dec. 2020. Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe station in the Swiss Alps is a highly popular day-trip excursion for travellers/tourists in Switzerland. The new Eiger Express cable car from Grindelwald Terminal shortens the journey to Jungfraujoch by around 47 minutes, although the final stretch to the top of the mountain remains by Jungfrau mountain train. The traditional trains-only route from Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen is still available and may be combined with a cable car ride. The Eiger Express cable car operates between Grindelwald Terminal (937 m asl) and Eigergletscher station (2328 m asl), in the Swiss Alps near Interlaken. It uses tricable technology to transport up to 26 passengers per gondola. The cable car ride is 6,483 m long but remarkably needs only seven support pillars en route. As the system can transport up to 2,200 travelers per hour, this new faster route is likely to become the more popular way to reach the Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe mountain station.
