Trümmelbach Falls – in the Valley of the 72 Waterfalls

Loud thundering and roaring in the interior of the mountain, gurgling, foaming and churning water: these are the Trümmelbach Falls. They are Europe's largest subterranean water falls and are located in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, often called the valley of 72 waterfalls. more

Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe

The Jungfrau Railway, which leads through the heart of the mountains and up to the highest train station in Europe (at 3,454 meters above sea level), offers unbelievable views of the mountain giants Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau and of the longest river of ice in the Alps.

The majestic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau summits, together with close-up views of the longest glacial flow. The Jungfrau railway travels from the heart of the mountains to Europe’s highest lying mountain station at 3454 meter altitude.

Niederhorn high-altitude hike

The views are unto themselves on this challenging ridge hike connecting the Niederhorn (Peak 1963 m.a.s.l.), easily accessible by chairlift, with Mt. Gemmenalphorn (2061 m.a.s.l.) and which veers down towards Habkern. The snowy peaks of the Bernese Alps vie with the karst cliffs of Hohgant and the Prealpine Region.

The Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are just as much in evidence during this hike as the ibex on the way to the Gemmenalphorn. The mountain path is easy at first but then becomes rather narrower, with lovely plunging views to the north as well. The direct descent starts out across a typical karst zone and then traverses forest and steep meadows to Habkern.
