Swiss Railway Journeys – The Jungfrau Railways Part 2
We join Swiss Railway Journeys, for part 2 in this series. We start at the village of Grindelwald, before taking the WAB train to Kleine Scheidegg, passing below the north face of the Eiger. We then return to Lauterbrunnen to look at the local lace-making industry and take the WAB once more. We pause on our second ascent to visit the village of Wengen before again reaching Kleine Scheidegg station. We now join one of the modern Jungfraubahn sets to make the journey to the summit. More than three quarters of this ride takes place in a tunnel inside the Eiger and Mönch mountains, and we pause to see the spectacular views from the special windows cut into the rock face. At Jungfraujoch we visit the many attractions to be found there, including the ice palace husky rides and the breathtaking views from the Sphinx terrace.
This program was filmed back in 1998 & has been featured on UK televison. Well worth a watch!!
