A paved path, hardly any gradients and even lit at night: the Aletsch Promenade connects Bettmeralp with Riederalp and is an easy walk that anyone can manage.
The starting point of this hike is Bettmeralp cable car mountain station. From here you head west along the Aletsch Promenade, which is paved and therefore wheelchair accessible. There is virtually no climb to the destination of the hike – the Riederalp mountain station. Benches along the Aletsch Promenade invite you to rest a while and enjoy the view. By the way, the Aletsch Promenade is lit at night! So it’s also ideal for an evening stroll.
Out and about with kids? The Hobbyland playground is a great place to let your kids really let off steam!
