 #10 Take a ride on the Jungfrau railway

Any stay at Camping Manor Farm in Interlaken is not complete without a ride on the Jungfrau railway up to the highest station in Europe. The Jungfraujoch, also known as the Top of Europe sits 3,454 metres above sea level high up in the Swiss Alps. The 9.34 km journey from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch takes around 50 minutes and most of the journey takes you through the Jungfrau tunnel, built into the Eiger and Monch mountains. En route the train makes two stops so that you can enjoy the views over the wintery wonderland of glaciers and of course snap some great photos.

The views from the top are phenomenal and stretch on for miles. You can admire the views of ice, snow and rock from the Aletsch Glacier or inside the ice palace. You can make the most of the stunning surroundings with a walk along one of the many hiking trails suitable for all ages.

For chocolate lovers, there is now a Lindt Chocolate experience to enjoy at the top of the mountain too for a truly Swiss experience.

This is a really enjoyable unique experience where you can take in truly stunning surroundings. And plus, who doesn’t love a ride on a cool old train?
