How to travel to the Eggishorn

The Eggishorn can be reached by cable car from Fiesch. Fiesch can be reached by train or by car.

The trip in detail

You first need to travel to Fiesch, either by train or by car. The cable car station was about 7 minutes on foot from the rail station. In summer and fall of 2019 though, a new transportation hub is being built in Fiesch, ensuring direct access from trains and buses to the cable car.

The first section of the cable car, which is also being replaced during this renovation project, takes you to Fiescheralp: a winter sports settlement half way up the mountain. There you need to change to another cable car to the Eggishorn. Both cable car trips just take a few minutes.

Dates of operation

The cable car to the Eggishorn does not operate from 23 April to 7 June 2019 and 28 October to 6 December 2019. Please check again later for further dates.

Update from October 2019: currently, the Eggishorn can't be reached. Due to melting permafrost in the area surrounding the top station, the cable car up from Fiescheralp isn't safe at the moment. It's expected to be operational again by December 2019.

Tip: check the timetable before you start your trip.
