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.

When I was flying to Milan I had to literally pinch myself to believe, that I am going to a foreign land all by myself and living my dream.It was around 11.30 pm when I landed in Milan and divulged myself with some serious pep up talks because I felt a tad bit lost.Amidst all the battles in my head, I saw a young woman walking towards the train station and befriended her. To my surprise, she was warm and very helpful. She expressed, “I will come with you till the hostel and grab a drink. I am very upset coz my best friend has moved to another city.” And that’s how her melancholy saved me the despair of finding my way.The walk towards the hostel was fascinating as all I saw around me were stores thriving to get my attention and at the end of the long stretch was the hostel — Ostello Bello.The moment I set my foot in the hostel, it seemed like I have entered a high-octane resto-pub. The place played electrifying music and I could hear tons of chitter-patter with copious amount of laughter coming from every corner.Amidst all the initial formalities of checking-in, my eyes were searching for my friend (Sigh! Struggling to remember her name). That’s when Helder (from the front desk) said, “Hey! Your friend just went and left you a kiss,” and I couldn’t do much but smile and thank her from all my heart. The ‘happy’ me chit chatted for a while with everyone before calling it a night.
