Poster of information in Jungfrau.

In my trip to Switzerland was in Jungfrau that "the maiden" means, is the mountainous more high pick of the solid one of the same name. I was also in Eiger with their north famous face and in Mönch with a height of 4.099 meters.

Jungfrau is in the canton of Berne, in the area of Oberland bernés, dominating the valley of Grindelwald. Jungfrau has 4.158 meters high, on the sea level.

The first time that somebody arrives at most high it was in 1811 for the siblings Meyer, Johann Rudolf and Hieronymus of the city of Aarau, and the hunters Alois Volker and Joseph Bortis. At the moment it is not necessary to suffer as them to arrive then there is a zipper railroad, Jungfraubahn that circulates for the interior of the mountain to the station of Jungfraujoch to 3.454 meters, the most high in Europe. For me, it was spectacular that of this train. If the traveler wants and he has forces, I saw people go down because the pressure doesn't tolerate it, they can, in elevator, to go up about 117 meters to the investigation center and panoramic terrace of Sphinx, the built building to the biggest altitude of the European continent to height of 3.571 meters on the sea level.

From 13 December of 2001, Jungfrau, is part of the World Heritage Site, "Jungfrau-Aletsch Protected Area."
