  • This glacier is really very impressive. It's wonderful. We walked all the way for 10km return, and it was not tired. We stayed at bettermalp, station out of time and very quiet. Attention must leave her car at the foot of the mountain and ride by cable car

  • Enjoy the view of the Glacier is impressive from the Observatory in Jungfrau! The view is really beautiful and you get hypnotized ...!!! We took several pictures, and we were enjoying the beautiful day for walking in the snow and have a few beers.

  • Fuumos 2 adults and 2 children. We climbed in the early hours of the morning. Our initial idea was to go first to the Summit of the Eggishorn and we started the route, but shortly after start we saw that all the land was of smooth stones of slate, and to go with small children did not give us confident of having a good time since the path is quite narrow with a steep slope on both sides , and abortamos. Instead take the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views of the glacier, that make us good day were with amplitude from the place de la Concorde, next to the Jungfrau and the rest of the great mountains of the area. We did hundreds of spectacular photos. Within a week we were going to climb the Jungfrau, but the views of the glacier since here liked most (climb the Jungfrau also experience is essential, but for many other reasons). Finally we ate some snacks and grape with glacier views. It seemed a luxury, though not much. Place imposed by grandiose and great peace is breathed. It is a must-see.
