Hängebrücke Aletschgletscher

Belalp–Hängebrücke–Riederfurka–Riederalp

PostBus takes you to the stars. 13 magnificent PostBus hiking suggestions.

A wide path leading through the beautiful mountain scenery takes us to the edge of the Aletsch glacier. The descent to the suspension bridge should not be underestimated. At the lowest point we take a short break and have a snack before we get ready for the ascent to the Riederfurka. A visit to the Villa Cassel with its nature protection center is a must before descending towards the cablecar station.
