WRS' Katt Cullen spoke to Hans-Christian Leiggener, Manager of the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch site and the World Nature Forum. We found out about the interactive museum, as well as the incredible site itself. 

The Jungfrau is one of the summits of the Bernese Alps at 4158m high. The Aletsch is the largest glacier in the Alps at 23km long. As the site of the Junfrau-Aletsch is so large, we look at how best to discover it.

In short, heading to Brig station and visiting the World Nature Forum to learn about the site in an interactive and engaging way is a recommended first step.

From there, you can take note of the aspects of the region that are of interest with an electronic pass, and then visit those sites in real life.
