Episode 3 leads through the Swiss high Alps - picture book mountains... At the Eiger north face, above Grindelwald, Messner ropes down with permafrost researcher Stephan Gruber. It's about the stability of rock faces in the times of climatic change. At the Gotthard pass Messner visits former strongholds of the Swiss army - now turned into a museum and a hotel. 1000 meters below, a gigantic tunnel is being excavated. In Vrin famous architect Gion Caminada talks about the future of the idyllic and prosperous village which had been loosing inhabitants over the past decades. On the "Musenalm" mountain pasture three generations of peasants lead "Heidiland" and their Alpine dairy into the 21st century. At the legendary Matterhorn above Zermatt Reinhold Messner gives a resume; of the future of the Alps. Written by Schwenkfilm
