Visiting Jungfrau

by jackberry

Which way is the most scenic way via Grindelwald or Via Lauterbrunnen?
Also can you get off the train at Kleine Scheidegg and catch a later train down the mountain?
Thanks for your response.

Re: Visiting Jungfrau

You could go up via Wengen/Lauterbrunnen and then down via Grindelwald or vice versa...this way you will be able to see both. Will take about the same time. And yes you can get off the train at Kleine Scheidegg. You will acctually have to get off and change train anyway so there is no problem to take a later one. For example you can have lunch or coffee at Kleine Scheidegg or just make some pictures.

You can do both. Just get a roundtrip ticket, go up one way, back the other way. And you can interupt your trip and look around as much as you like. As long as you complete the circuit on the same day.

Re: Visiting Jungfrau

by KakapoTheParrot

As for which is the most scenic - I just couldn't really separate them. They are both stunning experiences. I've done both many times and love the journey either way. If you have time and reasonable footware (you don't need heavy boots), consider walking down from KS to either of the first stops - your tickt allows you to do this. The paths follow the train line so you can't get lost. The train travels slowly but even so by walking you get chance to take in some of the best views in Europe.

Travel Tips for Grindelwald

The Eiger

by Manara

The 3970-mteres-high Eiger is certainly the most impressive view one enjoys from Grindelwald. Provided, of course, that the mountain does not hide itself behind thick clouds, as it happens very often. From Grindelwald the view you get is that of the (in)famous Northern Face, where more than 20 climbers, over several decades, met their death while trying to reach the top.
The top of the Eiger had been reached in 1858 by climbing its western side. However, the impressive Nothern Face, a vertical wall of about 1800 metres, seemed to challenge many mountaineers. The fact that in the 1930s several attempts were made and failed, sometimes causing the death of the climbers, contributed to give this mountain an almost mythical aura. The first successful climb of the North Face was in 1938, and other ones followed, but also the death toll continued, because this is really a hard and risky climb, especially because of the weather conditions.

Noch einen Schluck!

by Tripack


Taste the local with(out) moderation ;-)

As I know some VTer's get their BeerMaster since ages, I am happy to announce that the Jungfrau water is also used to produce a great local beverage under the label RugenBräu since 1866.

The tasting list is not so long, so try it and enjoy it:
- Export Bier (Lager) - 4.8%
Noch einen Schluck! (=One more please!)
- Spezial Bier - 5.2% my special favorite ;-)
Noch einen Schluck!
- Spezial Bier Dunkel - 5.2%
Noch einen Schluck!
- Alpenperle - 4.8%
Noch einen Schluck!
- Zwickel Bier - 4.8%
Noch einen Schluck!
- Mountain Twister - 1.5% mix between beer and apple/pear juice
Noch einen Schluck!
- Jungfrau Wasser - 0%
Go Sleep!!!

Furkapass

by robertgaz

The splendid scenery of the hairpin roads going up to the Furkapass with the snow capped mountains makes this probably one of the most photographed mountain roads in the Alps.

It's not far west of Andermatt driving to Gletsch. And just a little further west of Gletsch is the Rhône Glacier which is one of the main attractions on this road.

Restaurant with a view.

by dabidc

How about sitting on the terrace of the restaurant, having a beer or a meal and enjoying the sun as well as the view down to Grindelwald or up to Jungfrau or straight across at the North face of the Eiger.

Time to catch the train down.

Go on one of the many area hikes

by Redlats

Many people (locals and tourists alike) go to the mountains to hike. In fact when you pass someone on the path, the Swiss tend to say 'Gretsi' (or hello).

A problem with hiking too early in the season is that you may hit snow on the higher paths.
