Jungfraujoch–Top of Europe (3454 m) An excursion up to the eternal glacier world of Switzerland’s high Alps is an unforgettable experience. At 3454 metres, the Jungfraujoch is the highest-altitude railway station in Europe. From Kleine Scheidegg, the railway travels through the tunnel behind the notorious Eiger North Wall – with stops at two stations with viewing windows hewn in the bare rock – and on to the underground “peak” railway station, Jungfraujoch–Top of Europe
Schilthorn–Piz Gloria (2970 m) The Schilthorn shot to international fame as a spectacular location for the 007 film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. The views of the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau from the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant are simply stunning
Männlichen (2230 m) Enjoy the spectacular cogwheel railway trip from Lauterbrunnen to Wengen. The bottom station of the Wengen–Männlichen aerial cableway is only a few minutes walk from the railway station and village centre. From here it takes just five minutes to soar up over 1000 metres to the Männlichen summit (2230 m). Männlichen is also easy to reach from Grindelwald Grund with Europe’s longest aerial gondola.
>> note this is a glacier un-groomed, best skiing ABOUT Mid morning depending on specific conditions. I hiked from the rail station for about a hour to the shoulder of western ridge of Jungfrau.
There is a rope toe for beginners, but for the cost of the train ride to summit, plan on hiking appropriate to conditions ability and safety concerns. Ask Locals who has don what within teh last week!
The summit alone is worth a roll of film
