    As you make your way to the 'Top of Europe' you experience riding several trains with panoramic windows to view the most of the incredible Alpine area. Your first destination is Grindelwald, where you change trains and depart to Kleine Scheidegg. This section offers the stunning view of Eigerwand (Eiger Wall), one of the Great north faces of the Alps. The last Kleine Scheidegg - Jungfraujoch cogwheel train partly passes through the tunnel, which was built right across the Eiger rocks at an altitude of 3000 m (9,843 ft).

    Jungfraujoch is the high-Alpine wonderland of eternal snow and ice*. All this beauty could be marveled at from one of the observation decks located both inside and outside of a 3-storey observatory building.

    *Please, note: It is important to wear something warm and wind/rain protective when going to Jungfraujoch. The temperature there is usually lower than in the cities even in summer. In case you feel too cold you can always go inside the restaurants which are close to the observation deck.

    You can take an interesting walk through the Ice Cave where everything around you is made from ice. The area includes several restaurants, cafés and shops as well as place for snow activities to satisfy any taste.

    For the ride back you travel first to Kleine Scheidegg and then take a new route: to Interlaken via Lauterbrunnen. This way you see the stunning alpine area from a new perspective. You then return to the hotel and have the rest of the day free.
