The Jungfrau Region
The Jungfrau Region reaches from Interlaken (570 m. above sea level) up to the snow covered peaks of the central alps at over 4,000 m. above sea level. With this huge difference in altitude of over 3‘500 metres, the Jungfrau Region covers all the climatic ranges in the alps and offers an almost unlimited range of habitats and experience zones. The exceptionally good public transport in the region enables every guest to experience a huge range of contrasts, from swimming in the lake of Thun to touching a glacier on the Jungfraujoch or the stunning view from the Schilthorn – Piz Gloria (filming spot of 007 James Bond – On Her Majestie’s Secret Service).
History in the field of snow-sports has been written in the Jungfrau Region, the villages of Mürren and Wengen are known as the birth-place of skiing. The first ski races and the first skiing world championships were held in Mürren in 1931. The Jungfrau Region also played a central role in developing alpine climbing and mountaineering. The Jungfrau was the very first over 4,000 metre high mountain to be climbed in Switzerland (1811) and the dramatic first attempts to climb the north face of the Eiger also attracted a huge number of tourists to the area.
Endless fun in the snow can be had in the Jungfrau Region. The three ski areas of Grindelwald-First, Kleine Scheidegg-Männlichen and Mürren-Schilthorn are interconnected and access over 200 km of ski slopes and 100 km of sledding routes and winter hiking trails – and all with one ski pass. And the best thing is... you will always be accompanied by magnificent views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Endless fun can be had zooming down the many sledding runs in the area – one of which is the longest sledding run in the alps with a difference in altitude of 1,600 m from Bussalp to Grindelwald. Snow-shoe hiking is the perfect activity to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the snow covered landscapes along the marked trails in Grindelwald, Wengen and Mürren.
