Europe 2018: Jungfraujoch

Icy air streams across your face, snow crunches under your feet, and the view nearly takes your breath away: on one side the view of the Mittelland up to the Vosges, on the other the Aletsch glacier, bordered by four thousand metre peaks. Standing on the Jungfraujoch 3,454 metres above sea level, we were able to see it all and even have a taste of the snow that surrounds “The Top of Europe” even in summer.

On the Kleine Scheidegg, which is the first part on the way to the Jungfraujoch.
That’s the train!
Enzian :)
Mönch und Wanderpfad.
Scheidegg Bergstation.
In the train. Some of us are tired already.
Short stop to wait for the oncoming train.
Eiger Gletscher – 2.320 m.
Aletschgletscher, der grösste in den Alpen.
Aus der Jungfraustation hinaus ins ewige Eis.
Auf der “Sphinx”.
Blick hinunter nach Grindelwald.
Mönch, so gross schaut er vom Joch gar nicht mehr aus…
Omg, tourists :D
In der Sonnenliege am Joch.
Mönch und Zwerglein.
Durstig und keine Zeit für Kompromisse.
Joch und Sphinx – 3454 m.
We were here!
Still thirsty and looking for directions.
Down the glacier.
Swiss tourism advertising seems to be the little cousin of Disney World.
Eismeer, deep under the glacier 3.160 m.
Eagle statues.
The Iceage-Squirrel is here, too.
Ice tunnel.
Rrrrreally cold.
Sliding away.
Jungfraugrat to the top – 4.158 m.
Aletschgletscher vom Grat.
We were here – again!
Walking down from Eiger Gletscher to the Scheidegg station.
Very idyllic and also modern artsy.
Swiss mountain housing.
Romantic flowers and snow.
More flowers.
There’s the path into the Lauterbrunnental.
No words for this one.
Good night, Eiger, Mönch und Jungfrau!
