For our money, this is Switzerland's number one showcase. High, slender waterfalls cascade in long, silvery ribbons straight down its green flanks. Quaint, traffic-free villages perch above it on grassy shelves, and towering over all are the famed mountain peaks Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. Some of the world's most breathtaking scenery.
- The ride to the Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station
- Trümmelbach Falls
- Ride the train to Schynige Platte (on the route to the Jungfraujoch), eat lunch at the hotel (or bring a picnic), then walk the approximately two-hour "panoramic trail" which circles the summit.
