On 13 December 2019, the Grindelwald-Männlichen Gondola Cableway (GGM) as well as the new “Grindelwald Terminal” stop on the Bernese Oberland Railway (BOB) were officially opened. Saturday, 14 December 2019 will be the first time that guests can also use part of the new terminal of the V-Cableway major long-term project.
Construction alongside ongoing operations
The official ground-breaking ceremony for the 470 million Swiss franc V-Cableway project took place on 3 July 2018. Since then, the construction of the new Grindelwald-Männlichen Gondola Cableway has been advanced as a top priority. The gondola was in operation unchanged up to and including the winter season 2018/2019. It was only closed this summer in order to start the winter season 2019/2020 on time in December 2019 with the new 10-passenger aerial gondola from the Grund Terminal.
The Grindelwald Terminal station, the new stop on the Bernese Oberland Railway (BOB), can now be put into operation. The direct public transport connection represents a significant increase in quality for guests who want to travel to the Jungfrau Ski Region by public transport. The station has three entrances, with the main access via a connecting corridor leading directly to the Grindelwald Terminal and therefore to the CGM valley station.
Today's GGM was put into operation on 23 December 1978. With a total length of 6.2 km, it was considered the longest aerial gondola in the world. After more than 40 years of operation, the GGM was dismantled after the end of the 2018/2019 winter sports season. Sunday, 31 March 2019, was the last day of operation.
