    NO more dogs on top of the Jungfrau anymore !
    The special breed of Greenland-dogs was living on Jungfraujoch in the so-called "Polarhundekolonie" for more than 100 years. At first they were needed in order to supply the workers and engeneers building the train-track, later-on they became a tourist-attraction and during summer you may go around the glacier in sleds torn by these Greenland-dogs.
    The living-quaters of the dogs were close to Eigergletscher and it was possible to be visited by tourists upon appointment - see the telephone-number below !
    The dogs lived there in small groups and could run around freely in a fenced area at the Eiger-glacier or return to their stables. They also participates in various dog-sledge-racinges and TV-productions.

    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!

    Go Sleep!!!

    HMMMMMMM - GOOD

    I KEPT TRYING TO AVOID THE MERINGUE AS A FINISH TO MEALS. THEN BECAUSE OF THE LARGE PORTIONS OF FOOD IN THE MAIN COURSE I DECIDED TO SPLURGE AND ORDER DESSERT, ONLY ALONG WITH A BEER. tHE DESSERT WAS A DELICIOUS BOWL OF MERINGUE, A SORT OF LIGHT SWEET, AIR WHIPPED MERINGUE INCLUDING ICE CREAM. THE BEER WAS TWISTER, A BEER MIXED WITH APPLE DRINK AND ALSO SWEET AND DELICIOUS. THANKS REBIBI FOR BEING SUCH A GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER.
