Fiesch and the Aletsch Glacier, the longest glacier in the Alps, are part of the great Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn area. In 2001, because of its unique beauty, this was the first area in the Alps to be placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
From Chalet Roland, all facilities, e.g. the bus and train station, the valley station of the cable car, the supermarkets, bakeries, sports stores, travel agency, restaurants, pharmacy and doctors can be reached in 5 to 10 minutes.
From Fiesch, the Fiescher Alp at 2200m and higher up the Eggishorn at 2900m can be reached by cable car.
