Jungfraujoch – one of the most marvelous attractions of Switzerland

For those who love traveling, discovering different customs, and just being amazed all the time, Jungfraujoch could be the perfect place. Known as the “Alpine Wonderland”, Jungfraujoch is one of the most marvelous attractions of Switzerland. It also appears in the Top of Europe’s most beautiful locations and to be honest, it fully deserves the placement in this top.

About Jungfraujoch

At almost 3466 meters, Jungfraujoch is a glacier saddle, connecting the peaks Jungfrau and Monch. Both of them are located in the Bernese Alps of Switzerland, reaching heights over 4000 meters each. The Jungfraujoch railway or the “Jungfraubahn” became the symbol of this location, it is also the single route to climb the saddle. It starts from Kleine Scheidegg, with a length of 9 kilometers, climbing all the way to Jungfraujoch. It also holds the title of the highest railway in Europe, even though it is over 100 years old. 


Once you reach the saddle, you will be tempted by the Sphinx Observatory, one of the highest astronomical observatories in the world. It has an additional viewing platform at 3572 meters, which can be accessed with the help of an elevator from Jungfraujoch.
If you think that you’ll get bored from staying here on the tip of the mountains, I can assure you that there are plenty of things to try.
