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.
