The most visited place of the Alps, Jungfrau holds the title for being the top of Europe at 4150 m , is a world heritage site from 2001. The idea to construct a cogwheel railway to the Jungfrau summit was from Swiss industrialist Adolf Guyer-Zeller and in 1912, Europe had the highest altitude railway station opened. From Lauterbrunnen railway station(796m) to Jungfrau, en-route there are a few stopovers at Kleine scheidegg(2061m), Eigerwand(2865m) and Eismeer(3160m) where the trains halt for the visitors to have a panoramic view of the Bernese Alps.On top Jungfrau, there is a tour through the Alpine sensation, Ice palace and Sphinx observatory. There is an outlet of Lindt Swiss chocolate and few restaurants with interesting menus. Not to miss the immense fun you can have in the snow with skiing.
Despite the severely blinding snow, Schilthorn, situated 2970 meters above sea level attracts tourists from all over owing to the fact that one of the Bond films (On Her Majesty's Secret Service) was shot here. Another attraction is a revolving restaurant along with panoramic views of the Eiger, Monch, Jungfrau and even the Mont Blanc and Black Forest on clearer days. Remember to carry warm clothing, sunglasses and check the weather before visiting. All cable cars that take you to Schilthorn depart from the tiny town of Murren and trains connect Interlaken to the aforementioned village. Do check the SBB website (www.sbb.ch/en/timetable.html) for tickets and additional information. A Swiss Pass is recommended for unlimited rail travel and huge discounts.
