TOP OF EUROPE

Finally, we have Christmas holidays.
After being with our families and eat great food we wanted to see something…or just go for a little trip to somewhere. “Accidentally” I saw a pretty good deal for the railway to the Jungfraujoch. Normally it costs around 100 Euro but with our deal, it was “just” 60Euro (each person).

So we booked the trip and 4 days later we were on the road to Jungfraujoch (Booking information here the also are very nice if you call them).
We had to take two Railways. The first one was just a normal Railway up to kleine Scheidegg. Arrived there we toke the famous red Railway up to Jungfraujoch. That red Railway to the top of Jungfraujoch is the highest railway station in Europe and one of the most photographed scenery in Switzerland. We were so excited and I can tell you..already the ride was just amazing. There is one stop in the middle of the mountain. To think..right now you are standing right in the middle of the mountain. That’s crazy!

Here the view from the inside of the mountain through a window out to the Jungfrau glacier.

After taking some pictures at this beautiful glacier-viewpoint we had to go back to the train and after a small ride, we arrived at the top of Jungfraujoch (Top of Europe).

I can definitely recommend Jungfraujoch. It’s expensive, I know but this view! You will never forget this beautiful and breathtaking view… It was stunning.

When you are finally up at the top you can go for different spots. There is an amazing viewpoint at the top of the observatory. You have a 360 view through the Swiss alps. To see the giant Aletsch Glacier, the famous Aiger North wall or just the never ending mountains… If you haven’t had this spot on your bucket list TAKE THE PEN AND NOTE IT DOWN 😉

We hiked for 2 hours through the snow and ice, had amazing lunch and took some quite nice pictures.

If you go to Switzerland, go up there!

So stay tuned for more, we are GONE!

    Wow!! I totally want to go up there now. Thank you for sharing guys. I’d definitely want to take the red Railway at least once. It must have been magical.
    What was the difficulty level for the 2 hour hike? Was it a guided hike?

      Hey my dear
      You definitely have to go there if you come to Switzerland! It’s really amazing…but wait for a good deal..otherwise it will be very expensive (so i think they do that deal all year in December around the holidays).
      The hike was not difficult and also not guided. You will see where you can walk because they made like a street between the powder snow. 🙂 But you are not allowed to walk on the powder snow because you are still on a glacier ^^
