Jungfrau, Switzerland - Mountain climb - 18th April 2003

Posted by Edmond on Friday, April 25, 2003 · Comments (0)

Early morning trip to the Jungfrau via the Jungfraubahn railway. The cog train climbed up the mountain slopes and into the mountain through the tunnels. During the journey, the train made a couple of stops for passengers to stretch out and admire the mountain scenery.


An early start to get to the top of Europe was most appropriate for me, since many visitors around this time would be still having breakfast, and I could avoid any crowds of tourists. Thus, many of the passengers were mainly skiers or hikers. The other aim was to get the early morning discount.

The first leg of the trip goes up the mountain slopes towards Klein Scheidegg, where views of Grindelwald can be seen from the train. On the second leg, the train goes through the mountain and stops at Eigerwand and Eismeer for a few minutes each time. At Eigerwand, views of Grindelwald can be seen through the windows, now very much looking like a miniature town set. A few minutes later is the station of Eismeer, where mainly the snowy ridges and cliffs between the Eiger and Monch dominate the view, and serves as a warm up for things to come.
