FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • It's not called the "Top of Europe" for nothing. It's the highest railway station in Europe--snow and ice guaranteed. Even if the villages and valleys below are balmy, dress in warm layers and wear good shoes for this excursion--and take it easy when you first get there to acclimate to the altitude.
  • What to do? Dog sledding, skiing, snowboarding, eating at high-in-the-sky restaurants, standing on the observation deck with views to Germany and Italy, walking through the eternally frozen beauty of the Ice Palace. Best free fun: Riding snow disks down a slope on the plateau.
  • This is a full-day adventure. To start, you take a cogwheel railway to 6,700 feet at the foot of the notorious Eiger North Wall, then hop on board the Jungfrau Railway to climb to 11,000 feet. Even if you don't try any of the sports or adventures, it's worth it for the trip alone.
