Release of an ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 KR

Over 900,000 guests visited the Jungfraujoch

The Jungfrau Railway Group can look back on a successful year in terms of
visitor frequencies.
Despite the challenging situation, the Jungfraujoch was able to achieve the
second-highest frequency result in the history of the Jungfrau Railway. Although
the terrorist attacks in Europe, the unrest in Turkey and the refugee situation
have had a noticeable effect on the number of visitors, especially in group
business from Asia, a total of 916,500 guests visited the Top of Europe in 2016.
To achieve this, it was crucial that the company once again increased its
intensity of cultivating the Asian market in order to further strengthen the
Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe brand.

Thanks to early winter snowfall, Jungfrau Railways were able to start the
winter-sport season in mid-November 2016. Despite the ongoing high-pressure
weather in December, efficient snowmaking facilities made it possible to provide
continuous good skiing conditions in the Kleine Scheidegg ski area. During the
festive period almost all facilities in the Kleine Scheidegg area were in
operation and it was possible to open the Lauberhorn race piste for all
winter-sport enthusiasts. In the Grindelwald-First ski area, a reduced operation
for freestylers was possible and alternatives with mountain carts and scooter
bikes were offered in the lower regions. The Jungfrau Ski Region is a
cooperative product in which the Jungfrau Railway Group holds more than 60%.
From the beginning of the season up to 2 January 2017, the Jungfrau Ski Region
recorded 150,000 skier visits, a drop of 25 per cent on the same period last

All the group's other rail and cableways achieved positive frequencies compared
to last year. The First Aerial Cableway recorded a plus of 2.5 per cent on the
previous year. Especially in the summer months, 2016 exceeded the already
outstanding summer season of 2015 with a 25.5 per cent increase in frequencies.
The Harder Railway once again achieved record passenger numbers with an increase
of 8.8 per cent. The Mürren Rail & Cableway transported 614,000 passengers,
exceeding the good result of the previous year by 2 per cent.
