Embark on a very special journey through time. The glacier nature trail on the Belalp leads you from the top station of the cable car to the Aletschbord. The installation starts with an explanation of the path and closes with a view into the future.
The past: 1892 - A period of time that causes the whole of Europe to freeze and poses great challenges to agrarian society. In this time, the mighty glaciers of the Alps, which advance far into the valleys, are interpreted as a great threat.
Time travel: Time markers show in which year the Great Aletsch Glacier reacted extremely - as a long-term reaction to the changing climate. In these years, the glacier tongue the size of the Statue of Liberty melted back by more than 40m.
The present: Arriving at the Aletschbord, you are left with a view of the present state of our contemporary witness and a look back at how it once was.
