Schönbühlhorn

Schönbühlhorn (Schoenenbuelhorn)

The Schönbühlhorn stands next to Gross Wannenhorn, overlooking the Aletsch Glacier in the Jungfrau-Aletsch Protected Area, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001.

Schönbühlhorn is in the mountain range that lies south of the Grünhornlücke mountain pass that connects the Aletsch Glacier and the Fiescher Glacier.

It is one of many majestic mountains located in the Swiss canton of Valais, south of the idyllic ski village of Grindelwald.
