From Kliene Scheidegg, the cog-wheel railway travels year-round through the tunnel and over the steep climb up to the Jungfraujoch. Two stops in the tunnel permit spectacular views of the Eiger north wall and surrounding glacier world.

Standing amidst the snow-capped mountain world, views extend from the Aletsch Glacier to the Jungfrau - and a 45-minute snow hike through the thin air direction Mönchsjoch is pefectly feasible form here.

Additional wothwhile sights include the ice scupltures on the inside of the glacier, adventurous "Sphinx" round tour, as well as the ultra-scenic "Top of Europe" glacier restaurant.
