Jungfraujoch, Grindelwald-Wengen-Murren-Lauterbrunnen

Discover spectacular views of an icy Alpine wilderness at the very top of Europe by visiting Jungfraujoch, the continent's highest train station. Nearly two million people travel to this winter wonderland each year, lured by its panoramic views of mountains and glaciers, skiing, and snowboarding. Opened in 1912, the Jungfrau railway line passes through a tunnel that took several thousand workers over a decade to drill. The station sits 3,454 m (11,330 ft) above sea level, with the Sphinx viewing house providing sweeping vistas of the largest glacier in the Alps, a World Heritage Site. The adjoining commemoration hall displays memorials to miners who died building the railway and features a giant and incredibly detailed snow globe. Saunter through the Ice Palace, a year-round frozen hallway featuring ice sculptures. Dine in one of several panoramic restaurants, pick up a box of Swiss chocolates, and test your golfing skills in a hole-in-one challenge above the glacier. No matter the time of year you're visiting, don't forget your camera, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

  • Beautiful beautiful beautiful
  • Mesmerizing, chilling, breath taking, beautiful and jaw dropping. Just few words to describe one of the iconic places in Switzerland. A train ride to remember from lauterbrunnen. As the train goes to town to town, the temperature starts to drop. A must visit place . There are many spots to visit at the top. Google it to find out more. PS: carry woollen caps to shield from icy winds at the top.
