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.

Brienzer Rothorn – steam mountain

A nostalgic rack railroad driven by steam engines leads up the Brienz Rothorn, which was even in the 19th century one of the most popular vantage points for views in the Bernese Oberland. The train takes about one hour to climb the 1,678 meters difference in height.

Puffing we head on and up in Brienz, while ascending in a second climb from Sörenberg. On the south side with steam since 1892, and aboard large cabins on the mountain railway from the north.

Notre-Dame Cathedral

The Old Town of Lausanne has imposing buildings dating back to the Middle Ages, such as the famous Cathedral of Notre-Dame. The charming city on Lake Geneva has a lot to offer otherwise as well. For instance, Switzerland's first subterranean mountain train.
