“Eiger Express” from the cable car manufacturer Doppelmayr starts



Vorarlberg cable car manufacturer Doppelmayr has built a tricable cable car to the Eiger glacier for Jungfrau Railways in Grindelwald (Swiss canton Bern). The so-called “Eiger Express” will open on Saturday, Doppelmayr informed on Friday. The new lift overcomes a height difference of around 1.4 kilometers over a length of almost 6.5 kilometers. A price of 470 million francs (around 434 million euros) was reported in the media.

2,200 passengers can be transported per hour and direction. You will be offered a panoramic view of an extraordinary mountain backdrop as well as comfort, it said. In addition, the “Eiger Express” is the first cable car to combine fully automatic passenger and freight operations.

The “Eiger Express” is the heart of the major V-Bahn project, which combines the regional train with a new public transport connection, a ten-person gondola that opened last year, and the “Eiger Express” as a state-of-the-art mobility center. Urs Kessler, Director of Jungfrau Railways, spoke of a “masterpiece of all those involved” after 908 days of construction. The V-Bahn ensures the successful future of the entire Jungfrau region as a year-round destination in Swiss tourism in the medium and long term.
