V-Cableway Project

The most innovative and exciting construction project in the Alps.

In the tradition of visionary pioneering achievements in the construction of the Jungfrau Railway between 1896 and 1912, the V-Cableway will be in operation by December 2020. From the new terminal in Grindelwald, a tricable gondola takes you to the Eiger Glacier and a new 10-seater aerial gondola to the Männlichen – spectacular views and significantly reduced travel times included.

Heavy transport for the V-Cableway

On the nights of 23/24 and 29-30 July 2019, the ropes for the new 3S-Bahn Eiger Express will be delivered by road. The heavy transport to Grindelwald will take place between 21.00 and 01.00 hours. The crossing over the new "Grund bridge" is scheduled for 08.00 in the morning. During this time, the road section from Zweilütschinen to Grindelwald Grund will be subject to traffic congestion and waiting times of up to 40 minutes.
