Programme suggestion to discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch" in one day.
10:00 - 15:00 Hike along the Lötschberg South Ramp in Ausserberg
A hike along the Lötschberg south ramp is a special experience at almost any time of year. The Mediterranean vegetation of the rocky steppe can be explored with the whole family on a varied hike from Ausserberg to Brig. The hiking route starts at Ausserberg railway station and winds its way via Ze Gadmu to Eggerberg. It continues via Warbflie to Mund, Birgisch and via Rossegga on to Naters. The route through the old village centre leads past the World Heritage Visitor Centre World Nature Forum to Brig railway station. The route runs through several communities with public transport connections and can be shortened as desired. The route is very suitable for families with children. Ausserberg, the starting point of the hike, is easily reached by train.
Good to know: The hiking trail is generally open all year round. In winter, some sections of the route may be closed.
