Tour Description

Almost at the “edge” of the Bernese Alps, these two famous 4000ers “grow” into the sky. When arriving from Lauterbrunnen, their north faces seem to crush the viewer, at the Jungfraujoch the two peaks are completely different: the train allows easy accessibility, but they are not “given” to the climber. Wonderful, enjoyable trails lead to the highest points, which require some commitment. What is bestowed on the hard-working climber is the unique panorama from up there.
