Jungfrau, the top of Europe


The History of Jungfrau

Jungfrau is known as the Top of Europe. It is a popular destination in Switzerland where the highest train station, Jungfraujoch is located. The place is filled with spectacular nature. There is a sight spot at the 3571 meter mark on the Sphinx tower. UNESCO has approved it as the world’s first European heritage in 2001


How to conquer the Jungfrau

For those who want to challenge the height of Jungfrau. You can take the Glacier Express, the slowest express line, but it comes with a benefit of longer time to enjoy the Alps through tunnels and bridges with snow covering on both sides. The ride starts at Interlaken OST, there are 2 routes available, one through Grindelwald and another one through Lauterbrunnen. What’s the difference? You can enjoy different views along the way as both routes go to KleineScheidegg station and then Jungfraujoch. If you want to capture all the views, you can take a different route on your way back. Both take approximately 2 hours.


Another quicker alternative is to ride with Eiger Express which you will have to take a train from Interlaken OST to Grindelwald and then change to Eiger Express to Eigergletscher and finally Jungfraujoch
