The Eurail has brought us to our final Alp destination, Interlaken. We have spectacular views of the famous mountain trio Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau as well as the two lakes on either side of the city, the Thun and Brienz. Interlaken is the gateway to the Bernese Oberland and to our final adventure, climbing to the top of the tallest mountain in Europe...Jungfrau!
Tomorrow we head for Zurich and fly home the following day. Stay tuned for next year as the Alpine Gals have already begun planning their next adventure!!
JungfrauAt 11,371 feet above sea level, Jungfrau is the highest mountain in Europe. It takes about 2.5 hours from Interlaken and 3 different trains to ride to the top.
JungfrauFrom Interlaken (between the two lakes), it take 2 trains to reach the mid-point (where Mom is pointing - Kleine Scheidegg). The final 3rd train travels inside the mountain to the observatory (between Monch and Jungfrau)
Jungfrau TourBesides the Sphinx Observation deck, your admission also includes a tour (fun for kids)
Jungfrau PlateauYES...that's Nancy holding the camera and walking on the highest mountain in Europe. Don't be fooled by the crowds, it was REALLY slippery. Nancy almost slide off the side of the mountain.
