Such an amazing day! Wonderful weather! Today we drove through green Swiss pastures with beautiful wooden chalets to Grindelwald to catch 2 trains to the 'Top Of Europe' - Jungfraujoch- 3454 metres up- The snow capped peak of Jungfrau is right there! The train travelled almost vertically at times! At the top there is the High Altitude Research Station, the the Ice Palace- ice carvings (freezing) and amazing views including over the glacier. We walked out onto the snow to see breathtaking views. The weather was perfect- apparently such clear views don't happen very often so we were so, so lucky. Problem- altitude sickness! Not pleasant but so worth it!!!!Read more
Just to give you an idea of how high it is to the top! The other snap shows where you leave the train and the travel up in a lift through the middle of the mountain to the top where we went to the High Altitude Station.
