The Grindelwald-Männlichen Gondola Cableway and Jungfrau Railways are building a V-cableway to access both the Eigergletscher and Männlichen. A tri-cable aerial cableway will travel to the Eigergletscher and ten-seater aerial gondolas will travel to Männlichen, both starting from a joint terminal in Grindelwald Grund.
The V-cableway will have a link to public transport with the new Berner Oberland-Bahn (BOB) Rothenegg railway station. Travel time to the Jungfraujoch and the ski region will be significantly shortened by 47 minutes. With eight integrated elements, the V-cableway project is a project for the entire Jungfrau region, pursuing the main objectives of quality and future.
Start of construction: Summer 2018 Commissioning new GGM December 2019 / Eigerexpress December 2020
Purpose and goal
The V-Cableway secures the medium and long term successful future of tourism throughout the entire Jungfrau region as a top year-round destination in Swiss tourism. It strengthens the competitiveness of the Jungfraujoch as a beacon known worldwide, and it helps the winter sports destination reach the top position in international competition.
