JUNGFRAU REGION

As the air plane is approaching Switzerland, passengers are highly recommended to look outside the window. Majestic is the famed Jungfrau, standing amongst the boundless, snowy Swiss Alps. Upon arrival, happy visitors are heading to Interlaken to begin their good times with a view that nearly takes their breath away.

INTERLAKEN

Embraced by four tranquil valleys of the Alps, this graceful vast town between two stunning lakes is one of the first-string romantic destinations of Switzerland.

Not only magnificent location and lustrous views – here, visitors can also experience the fascinating outdoor activities and exhilarating adventures like paragliding and mountain parachuting. You will be impressed with a fantastic bird’s-eye view of the Interlaken landscape, nestled between the Lake of Thun and Brienz.

HARDER KULM

Gazing up from the magnetic Interlaken, Harder Kulm, the town’s home mountain, perches on top of the soaring summits. Reachable in less than 10 minutes, tourists could enjoy fabulous views of the Jungfrau Region at 1,322 metres above sea level.

The best way to reach Harder Kulm is the Harder Railway. The Two Lakes Bridge vantage platform is a long terrace on the cliff that drops vertically down to a hillside, disclosing one of the most commanding Swiss views.

GRINDELWALD-FIRST

Grindelwald-First is an amazing place for adventure-seeking tourists to thrillingly explore the Jungfrau amidst the glacier village. The wide array of electrifying attractions allow you to glide high at the speed of 70 kilometres an hour, feeling as free as an eagle in the midst of incredible mountainscape.

The six-seater aerial cableway on the sunny side of the Grindelwald valley heads up to First at 2,168 metres above sea level. High in the Grindelwald valley, you will be greeted by arguably the most impressive 360-degree panoramic view of Alpine mountains.

A variety of summer hiking routes begins here from First station, one of which is a classic two-hour summer hike to Bachalpsee Lake, which is very popular.

SCHYNIGE PLATTE

The place was once the summer resort for the rich and famous, with its astonishing mountain ridges. As one steps into the open coaches of the nostalgic cog railway, as if carried back to the Belle Époche, the great experience starts right away.

The timelessness of the stunning surroundings makes this 50-minute train journey utterly charming. Visitors will be impressed with the Botanical Alpine Garden and the Schynige Platte Nature Cinema.

You can also enjoy the warm sound of the rare Alphorn, the local Swiss music instrument, in front of the world-famous summits. And the good news is, the Swiss Travel Pass grants visitors free travel to the Schynige Platte!

JUNGFRAUJOCH – TOP OF EUROPE

Breathtaking is Europe’s highest-altitude railway station, at a height of 3,454 metres above sea level. No other summits in Switzerland can offer an all-year spectacle like Jungfraujoch. Surrounded by gleaming snowcovered peaks, visitors could witness the Vosges and the Aletsch glacier.

From Interlaken-Ost station, it takes two hours to reach the top of Europe, only by the Jungfrau Railway, scheduled on every 30 minutes daily. The brand new trains shorten the round-trip length by 30 minutes, which pleasantly allows tourists to have more time inspecting the grandest vista of snow-capped massif.
