Fiesch

Valais

As part of the Fiesch Sport Resort, the youth hostel helps you gain free (or cheaper) access to its huge variety of sports. The offer is particularly attractive for families, school classes and associations, but also for dynamic solo travellers. Besides, the sun-drenched location inspires people to go skiing or freeriding in the powder snow, or to go hiking on one of the high-altitude panoramic mountains. There you can enjoy an incredible view of the enormous ice masses of the Aletsch Glacier. If you'd rather do your sightseeing at ground level, a trip on the subterranean lake of St-Léonard is highly recommended.

    Offers

  • BLS is replacing the tracks in the Lötschberg Summit Tunnel between Kandersteg and Goppenstein, ensuring that the Swiss Plateau will remain connected to Valais in future. Construction work will take place during normal operations and will last until 2022. The goal is to make travellers aware of the situation in good time in order to avoid longer waiting times. Due to the less regular timetable and reduced capacity, however, some longer waiting times cannot be completely avoided.

    From Easter 2019 to Christmas 2022, every weekend from Friday afternoon through to Sunday evening, waiting times are expected for the Lötschberg car transporter train.

    You can find all the information on the current departure times here: www.bls.ch/neue-fahrbahn
