Jungfrau

Jungfrau is located in the Bernese Alps, Switzerland. This ski destination connects three ski resorts Mürren Schilthorn, Wengen Grindelwald & Grindelwald First, and combined they boast three mountain ranges, two valleys and 214 kilometres of groomed slopes. This destination offers ski/boarding for all levels including gentle slopes, steep drops, snow and fun parks, racing tracks and powder conditions.

Overview

With what is seen as Europe’s most dramatic mountain scenery, skiing in the Jungfrau region is like no other. Located beneath the impressive Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks, the ski town Interlaken earns its name as the gateway town to the Jungfrau ski region. With an impressive public transport system to and from the ski areas and a large variety of accommodation and activities, this town really comes alive in winter with the largely uncrowded and immaculately groomed slopes.

It is also a destination where you can take the train to the top of the Jungfrau summit reaching Jungfraujoch; this saddle connects two, 4000 metre peaks at an elevation of 3,454 metres and is home to the highest train station in Europe. With breath-taking views, this ski resort really is at the top of the world.

Other Activities

At Jungfrau there is a range of non-ski activities to keep you entertained.

Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe
Open all year round, ride the Jungfrau Railway to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. Journey time from Interlaken-Ost is approximately 2 hours.


Sledging
The Schilthorn area is the perfect destination to enjoy snow sledging. Sledgers can experience the Apollo sledge run – this wide, sun-drenched trail leads from Schiltgrat station back to Mürren.


Faulorn Winter Hiking
You can only reach the summit by foot. The two-and-half-hour winter hike from First is, however, highly rewarding: on the one hand due to the panorama and on the other because it is on the Faulhorn (2681 m above sea level) that the world’s longest sledging run begins. Once you’ve pulled your sled up the mountain you can take it easy on the way back via the Bussalp to Grindelwald: there is nothing else to do except steer and brake for the next 15 kilometre


First Flyer (Zipline)
Open summer and winter the perfectly secured in the stable harness, up to four persons whiz along the 800 metre long steel cable from First to Schreckfeld at a top speed of 84km/h. In some places, they hover approximately 50 metres above the alpine meadows. Fully airborne.


First Glider
Flying with a bird of prey can be exhilarating. Especially when an eagle called First Glider takes flight. His four “passengers” float through the mountain landscape and enjoy a panoramic view at high speeds: To begin with, the First Glider is pulled backwards from Schreckfeld towards First at 72 km/h. It is on the way back that the eagle really takes off. He and his passengers glide the 800-metre-long flight route at up to 83 km/h.
