Kleine Scheidegg

Jungfrau Region

The Jungfrau Region is not only a magical place in winter, but also in summer when the valley offers activities for all ages in front of a unique backdrop.

Breathtaking heights, idyllic lakes and unspoiled landscape: the many faces of the Jungfrau Region. The car-free villages of Wengen and Mürren are perfect to relax and unwind or to take part in the traditional processions. Activities happen at a faster pace on the First where visitors either take to the skies or explore the region with high speed.

At the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe, guests learn about the giant glacier and enjoy unique views. In the Ice Palace, visitors step into the fascinating world of ice, snow and glaciers and get a first-hand experience of it. Just as impressive are the many waterfalls in Lauterbrunnen, which are landmarks of the region. A tip for nostalgics: from Wilderswil take the historic railway to the Schynige Platte. Grindelwald is well known for its sporting challenges thanks to the Eiger Ultra Trail, the Jungfrau Marathon and the Eiger Bike Challenge. In Meiringen-Hasliberg, children can experience the story of the eldest dwarf “Muggestutz” on the Adventure Dwarf Trail.
