This World Heritage Site is firmly in the “I just can’t believe what I’m seeing” category. Home to the largest connected glaciated area in Switzerland, the three iconic mountains Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau look like they were sculpted directly from a block of ice. But why stand there in awe when you can go up there? And no, one doesn’t have to be an experienced mountaineer to make the trip.
The Jungfraujoch railway station, located at 3,454 m above sea level, is the highest in Europe. Unsurprisingly, it is also known as the Top of Europe. Since 2020, the state-of-the-art Eiger Express has cut the commute to the top in half. It connects Grindelwald station with the Eiger Glacier station. From there, the rack railway takes guests to the top. Pretty cool, right?
