Dreieckhorn

Dreieckhorn

Dreieckhorn overlooks the snowy and icy Swiss Konkordiaplatz valley, also known as Concordia Place. Standing west of the Aletsch Glacier in the Jungfrau-Aletsch Protected Area, it serves as one of the many picturesque peaks in Switzerland’s Bernese Alps. The parent peak of Dreieckhorn is Aletschhorn.

The main Aletsch Glacier stems from Konkordiaplatz, and the glacier was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001.
