Exploring the Jungfrau Region

Exploring the Jungfrau Region

Named after the towering Jungfrau summit, this mountainous region in the Swiss Alps is known for its rugged Alpine scenery. From panoramic viewpoints overlooking glaciers and sky-high mountain peaks to misty waterfalls, here are some of the sights you won’t want to miss while exploring the Jungfrau region.



Known as the Top of Europe, this high-altitude saddle connects the peaks of Jungfrau and Mönch. Visitors ride a cog railway up the narrow slope to the 11,330-foot (3,454-meter) Jungfraujoch summit station for panoramic views of an icy wilderness that encompasses parts of the Aletsch Glacier and surrounding Alpine peaks.


Sphinx Observatory

Perched about 384 feet (117 meters) above Jungfraujoch station, this steel and glass observation station is used by scientists to conduct research and monitor meteorological conditions. The observatory’s terrace is open to the public and is accessible via a lift, affording dizzying views that—when conditions are clear—stretch all the way to the German and French borders.


Ice Palace of Jungfraujoch

Situated at the Jungfraujoch, this frosty palace—originally hewn into the ice in the 1930s by mountain guides—is filled with impressive ice sculptures. Wander through tunnels and chambers, marveling at frozen carvings of animals such as penguins and bears.



This imposing mountain is famous in the climbing world. Its sheer and perilous, crumbling north face—nicknamed Mordwand (Murder Wall)—has earned particular notoriety. Some of the best views of the towering wall of limestone are from the Eiger Trail, which runs along its foot.


Staubbach Falls

Dropping from a height of almost 985 feet (300 meters), Staubbach Falls are among the most impressive waterfalls that are dotted around the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Go in summer, when the falls flow freely and gentle winds infuse the air with misty spray.
