  • Aboard the Jungfrau railway to the Summit. There is a lookout of the Jungfraujoch. It is unthinkable, but also goes out. I can walk on this ice, a little hard.

  • Great Alechskij is the longest glacier in the Alps. Its length is about 20 km. In the composition of the region Bngfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn glaciers was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Summer glacier excursions (requires appropriate expertise and equipment). Panorama of the Grand glacier is best seen from the saddle pass Jungfraujoch. Summary: a magnificent natural phenomenon can be recommended to attend to all lovers of the mountains.

  • An amazing sight, from any angle. Great view from Eggishorn, but from the middle station (Fiescheralp) you can walk though a long tunnel past Märjelensee right to the edge of the glacier.
  • One of the best places of Switzerland !
  • Absolutely magnificent view, definitely worth visiting. Lift prices aren't cheap, but it's 100% worth it for the view you get at the top.
  • Excellent panorama view! Tickets for lift really aren't cheap but what you get for the price is great.
  • OMG!!! Must go!
