Jungfrau Railway in summer

Work on the Jungfrau Railway from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch began in 1896. Built in stages so that ticket revenue could be used to fund construction, the line up to Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station at 11,333 feet (3,454m) was finally completed in 1912.

From Kleine Scheidegg the Jungfrau Railway takes us to Eigergletscher, home to the husky dogs that pull sledges up the summit of the Jungfrau. Shortly after leaving Eigergletscher we enter the 4.43-mile (7,122m) tunnel that ends underneath Jungfraujoch. During our journey through the tunnel we make a short stop at Eiger Wall to enjoy the view through the picture window from the north face of the Eiger down to Grindelwald. We also stop briefly at Eismeer to enjoy the views over the Grindelwald and Fiescher glaciers before arriving at our destination: Jungfraujoch's underground station.
