Top Of Europe: Jungfraujoch

Jungfraujoch is located 3454m above mean sea level and it has the pride of being the highest railway station in Europe. More info here.

To reach Jungfraujoch, we departed from Geneva to Interlaken and transit via Kleine Scheidegg

The whole journey took about 3 hours.

For me, 3 hours train journey is a long time.

Luckily the scenic view along the journey is awesome.

See if for yourself.

Beautiful City of Interlaken

If you ever wondered, how does a train reach a train station so high by using railway tracks?

It will slide down over a steep slope don't you think?

Yea, there goes the answer for that question.

Specially design cog assisted railway tracks. =.=

The train keep climbing up and up all the way to the Top of Europe: Jungfraujoch.

Tunnel of Lights
And whoaaaaa~

People from all around the world came here for the snowy scenes.

Pure white snow and blue sky.

Birds love to hang around. ( I think those are crows?)

We came to make snowballs!

Some came over for hiking, skiing, snowboarding etc e.g. winter games.

Even the dog couldn't wait to run wild.

We spent about 2 hours at Jungfraujoch to enjoy the view.

It's like we do not want to leave. It's just too beautiful...

Anyhow, our time and passports don't allow us to do that.

We got a train to catch.

Don't you just love the cottages with the snowy mountain just behind?

That's about it for Jungfraujoch.

Luzern is the next town we shall visit.

Remember, there are more pictures in my flickr account and do leave a comment :P

Hope you all like it and have a nice day.
