The Jungfrau ( 4158m ) in the Bernese Oberlands
The Jungfrau is the westernmost and highest of the famous Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau trilogy.
It is a high altitude alpine route with an easy approach by train.
Jungfrau is a great snowy mountain and a centre for tourism in the Bernese Oberland.
Its spectacular North Face towers nearly 10,000 feet from the valley below.
Jungfrau and its neighbouring peak Mönch ( 4099m ) are separated by a col at Jungfraujoch
that holds an observatory, a railway station and a hotel.
At 3478 meters this is the highest point in Europe that is reachable by railway
and from which the summit of the Jungfrau is a short, icy climb up the northeast ridge.
