The route to the peak is truly remarkable and definitely unforgettable.
The route - Interlaken Ost - Lauterbrunnen - Kleine Scheidegg – Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald - Interlaken Ost.
This unique round-trip by modern cogwheel railway takes you first to Kleine Scheidegg, at the foot of the notorious Eiger North Wall. From here the Jungfrau Railway starts its climb to the station at Eigergletscher, well known for its mountain restaurant and polar dog kennels. So stop a few minutes and don’t forget to have some coffee, tea or hot chocolate. The trip then continues through the Eiger tunnel to the stations at Eigerwand and Eismeer, with a five minute halt at each. Enjoy spectacular sightseeing through large observation windows cut from solid Alpine rock.
I don’t even have to say that the roof of Europe, offers superb views extended as far as the mountains in France and the Black Forest in Germany. When you are here just enjoy the Sphinx observation terrace & hall, the impeccable Ice Palace. Don’t forget to have a walk around the Jungfrau….
