Gimmelwald, the small village in the Bernese Oberland on 1367 meter over sea (4485 foot), overlooking
the UNESCO world heritage area Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn. The intact, pedestrian, Alpine village is
located in the heart of the Swiss alps pereched high on the edge of a cliff and embraced by Mother
Nature herself, ane one of the last car-free villages in Switzerland. Chalets decorated with flowers, a
cheese storehouse in the middle of the village, cattle grazing all around: Gimmelwald is like something
out of a fairy tale. The approach is spectacular, giving you butterflies in your tummy as the aerial
cable car rises up from Stechelberg along the cliff walls as you pass magnificent waterfalls.
Project “school Gimmelwald”
A village has a vision
The population of the small mountain village of Gimmelwald in the Lauterbrunnen valley wish to keep and maintain its school building as a community
meeting place. Their idea is that the empty school building would not be sold
for private use, but would be brought back to life as a community space. Help us !
