Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe

Jungfrau Railway Experience


The Jungfraujoch in Switzerland is located high on the Aletsch Glacier, the longest glacier in the Alps, surrounded by the famous trio of mountains - the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. 650,000 visitors from all over the world step out on the Junfraujoch each year following the train ride on the Jungfrau railway from Kleine Scheidegg through the notorious and world famous north face of Eiger until it reaches the highest train station in Europe. It is one of the most popular train journeys in the world.

The history of the Jungfrau railway, thanks to the visionary pioneer Adolf Guyer-Zeller, is unique in the development of railway engineering. This book marks the 100-year anniversary of the Jungfrau railway in 2012 and shows the development of the line from the beginning. The area was recognised in 2001 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the unique mountain scenery and landscape around the Jungfrau railway occupies a central place in the book.

This is a comprehensive, informative and beautifully designed book, written by well-known authors and renowned photographers. It is written in English and German languages and supported with 200 photos.
