Standing on the Jungfraujoch "TOP OF EUROPE" 3,454 meters above sea level, you can feel it with your first step: this is a different world. It's one you have to experience.

The Jungfraujoch (German: lit. "maiden saddle") is a saddle connecting two major 4000ers of the Bernese Alps: the Jungfrau and the Mönch. On a cliff, lays the observatory aka The Sphinx. ICE PALACE Mountain guides created the aisles and halls in the 1930s with picks and saws in the middle of the Jungfraufirn. Today, artists create ice sculptures.

The Jungfrau Railway is a mountain railway in the Bernese Alps, connecting Kleine Scheidegg in the Bernese Oberland to the Jungfraujoch, across the Valais border. The railway, which uses a 1,000 mm meter gauge and racks, runs 9 kilometers from the station of Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch.
