🏔 [Jungfraujoch] 🏔
[Bernese Alps • Switzerland]
️ [December • Winter]
After a good night’s rest in the cozy village of Grindelwald, we were ready to head up to the highest train station in Europe, Jungfraujoch.
It was a crisp and clear morning as we took the train up to Kleine Scheidegg for a transfer of trains, before continuing our journey up to Jungfraujoch through a series of tunnels. Although expensive, the steep slopes and gruelling conditions the trains have to go through is testament to the remarkable and reliable Swiss engineering involved here.
Once atop the Sphinx Observatory, we braved the -18°C temperatures and caught a panoramic view of the Aletsch Glacier, the summit of Jungfrau as well as the surrounding mountain range, before buying some chocolates in one of the highest Lindt shops in the world - 1 month ago
