Travel Tips for Riederalp
Take a snowboarding or skiing class
The thing that makes you go to Riederalp in wintertime is obviously to enjoy the snow. If you never went on wintersports you need to take some classes to get the hang of it. For 170 CHF you get lessons daily from 10:00-13:00 o'clock for a week from Monday to Friday. I took a snowboardclass. And beside the fun we had I can say I also learnt something! On Thursday it is time to compete against the people in the class. Being a big talent ....'ahum'.... of course I won the competition. The other person in my group was second, and....... that was the whole group ;-)
The longest glacier in The Alps...
The Great Aletsch glacier and the UNESCO World Heritage site Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn
No matter whether you are at Moosfluh, Bettmerhorn, or Eggishorn, the view of the Aletsch glacier is unique: you can admire the glacier from up above with a gorgeous view of the enormous stream of ice. This is quite unusual because anywhere else in the Alps you usually have to look up to a glacier. Another impressive fact about the Aletsch glacier is its length: at 23 kilometers (75,463 ft), the Aletsch glacier is the longest stream of ice in the Alps. The catchment area in the Jungfrau region lies at about 4,000 m (13,124 ft) above sea level; the glacier cave in the Massa gorge is about 2,500 m (8,202 ft) lower.
