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.

Inauguration aerial gondola Grindelwald-Männlichen (GGM)

The aerial gondola Grindelwald-Männlichen (GGM) started into operation in mid-December 2019. With 111 gondolas the transport capacity doubles from 900 to 1800 guests per hour. With the modern gondolas for up to ten people the journey to the top station at 2225 metres above sea level, takes only 19 minutes instead of 30 minutes. The trains of the Berner Oberland-Bahnen (BOB) now stop at the new Grindelwald Terminal station with the direct link to the new GGM-valley station. With the Männlichen arial gondola, guests can profit from the first part of the new terminal of the V-Cableway project at the valley station.

Concrete shell construction work and finishing work continues

Since 6 January 2020, construction work have resumed on the Eiger Glacier and in Grindelwald Grund after the two-week Christmas break. At the Eigergletscher, the concrete shell construction work is to be completed by the end of February. In addition, from February onwards, building and cableway extension work at the Eiger Express mountain station and Eigergletscher station will commence. In Grindelwald Grund, the concrete shell construction work for the multi-storey car park will continue, and the excavation of the building pit has been completed. In the terminal building, work continues on the Eiger Express valley station, shops, bistro and production kitchen.
