Project / V-Bahn

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.

The order comprises three subareas. On the one hand, the façade, which must withstand a multitude of different influences. To do justice to this, a post-and-beam system is used. The connection from the parking to the valley station is realized by a passerelle. This is also carried out in the post-and-beam system. The skylight, called the "crevasse", provides enough light inside the building.
