Jungfrau Railway, Switzerland | Top of Europe

The Jungfrau railway, a pioneer road and a masterpiece among mountain railway lines were put into service in 1912. A gear train takes passengers from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch Pass, to the “Top of Europe” 3454 m high. high-altitude European railway, Fieschertal, Switzerland. 7 out of 9 km of tracks are laid in a tunnel in the Eiger and Munch rocks. The train stops for 5 minutes at each of the intermediate stations so travelers can admire the mountains through panoramic windows.

Jungfraujoch

The Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bitschhorn region is located in the eastern Bernese Alps, in the most glacial region of the Alps. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 and expanded in 2007. Its name comes from the Aletsch Glacier, as well as the Jungfrau and Bichhorn peaks, which are one of the most impressive sites in the region. In fact, after expansion, the area includes other large glacial valleys such as the Fisher Glacier and the Aar Massif.

Top of Europe


The Jungfrau railway is the highest train station in Europe. The second name of the station is “Top of Europe." 

The final length of the railway line was almost 10 km with a maximum slope of 25% and a speed of about 12 km / h (when driving downhill, it doubles). By the end of the 20th century, the annual number of passengers on the Jungfrau road exceeded half a million, and at the beginning of the 21st century, their daily number reached almost 10 thousand.

The train of the Jungfrau railway overcomes the height difference of 1400 m in 50 minutes.

On the way, the Jungfrau train passes 3 stops. The first, the Eigergletcher, is named after the adjacent glacier and is located at an altitude of 2320 m. It was the last open-air station of the Jungfrau mountain. The next station, "Eigervand", is located underground, in a tunnel, at an altitude of 2864 m. The only way to get to this station, not by the Jungfrau train is through a door in the rock that opens directly onto a smooth vertical slope (rescuers sometimes use it) ... Finally, the Eismir is located at an altitude of 3158 m and also in a tunnel, just beyond the southeastern slope of the Eiger. The main purpose of the station is to allow passengers to admire the Grindelwald-Fischer glacier from the train windows.

Jungfraujoch Train


Trains leave twice an hour from the Kleine Scheidegg lower station. You can also get there by train on the lines from Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald.

The summit itself is a glacier and grotto world that lies in the Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage. Visitors are afforded excellent views of the Aletsch Glacier, and 14 miles the longest in the Alps. On clear days, views extend even beyond Switzerland's frontiers to the Vosges mountain range in France and the Black Forest in Germany.
