  • The view is splendid. We climbed with the gondola in Betten (free for under 6s) the small village of Bettmeralp is too pretty and almost without cars, we went around the lake (it is small). You really have to do this tour once. The view of the sublime glacier! We had the picnic with and ate upstairs on benches but there is also a restaurant.

  • We went from the Bettmeralp by train to Bettmerhorn and from there walked to Moosfluh. Here you have more or less the view of the glacier all the time and it always goes down the mountain.

  • I did a day hike here. The route and the glacier run side by side. Looking down on it was amazing. You could see how much it has decreased over time on the rock face at the far side.
  • Alstsch glacier can be seen from multiple points. Eggishorn provides beautiful panoramic views of the glacier. Easily accessible by lift from Fiesch. Worth a visit.
