The Jungfrau Railway is a mountain railway in the Bernese Alps, connecting Kleine Scheidegg in the Bernese Oberland to the Jungfraujoch, across the Valais border. It is the highest railway in Switzerland and Europe, the Jungfraujoch being the highest railway
station on the continent and well above the perennial snow line. The Jungfrau Railway includes three additional stations. The initial open-air section culminates just after Eigergletscher (2,320 m), at around 2,350 metres, which makes it the second highest open-air railway in Switzerland. The two other stations are located in the Jungfrau Tunnel, where passengers can disembark for a short time to observe the neighbouring mountains through windows built into the mountainside. The lower one, Eigerwand, gives access to windows in the north face of the Eiger. The upper one, Eismeer, gives access to windows in the east face of the Eiger, overlooking the Eismeer (the "sea of ice"). To reach embarkation station at Kleine Scheidegg you must arrive first at Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen (large covered parking lot next to the station). Ideally would recommend to park in Interlaken Ost if you can, so you can see the entire region by going up and down via different routes. Otherwise you'll only see half of the area.
