    Mountain lovers, here is the post you've been waiting for: take note of these 5 places for an unforgettable Switzerland!

    The Jungfrau region is an area of ​​Switzerland located in canton of Bern, in the central western part of the country.



    It is a destination suitable for both summer holidays, thanks to the many mountain trails, lakes and waterfalls than the winter ones, with more than 200 kilometers of ski slopes.

    There are three main peaks: Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, from which the region takes its name.

    The landscape was named UNESCO World Heritage Site and understanding why is not difficult.

    here nature is truly the protagonist, in ways and forms so impressive as to arouse a kind of reverential respect.



    I was there last January and I was impressed by the white of the snow that surrounded everything and by the atmosphere you breathed.

    Here are what they are in my opinion the most beautiful places to visit in the Jungfrau Region.

    1. Wengen

    This is how I imagined a typical mountain town in Switzerland. I got there by train because it is closed to traffic, but I have to say that getting there was very convenient.

    Chalet, hotel in the belle epoque style, houses with pointed roofs, slightly retro shops: Wengen has a slightly nostalgic yet irresistible flavor.

    On the occasion of Ski World Cup in Lauberhorn, the country is transformed and is attacked by tourists and sportsmen from all over the world.

    It is located on a sunny terrace at the foot of the Jungfrau, 400 meters above the Lauterbrunnen Valley, at 1274 meters above sea level.

    Wengen is also great starting point to reach other places in the Jungfrau region by train such as Kleine Scheidegg, the Jungfraujoch and Lauterbrunnen.

    2. Jungfraujoch

    Don't miss a visit to the Jungrafujoch, where the highest railway in Europe arrives, completed in 1912 at about 3000 meters. It starts from the Kleine Scheidegg station and through a tunnel of about 7 kilometers, you reach the top.

    At the top are there'Sphinx Observatory, a museum linked to the history of the railway, an ice palace with ice sculptures and a panoramic terrace. There are also several restaurants, shops and a bar.


    3. Grindelwald

    Grindelwald in winter is the largest and most renowned Swiss ski resort.


    With the cable car you can reach the highest peak, First, at 2168 meters, from which you have a spectacular view of the valley and the surrounding mountains.


    The village is located in a delightful and verdant valley, surrounded by an imposing scenery with the north face of the Eiger and the Wetterhorn.

    4. Interlaken

    Interlaken is located on a mountain protected plain between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz.


    One center delightful and full of life, tourists, shops, activities. The walk along the lakes is relaxing and pleasant.

    Lake Thun and Lake Brienz are crossed by excursion boats, including historic steamboats.

    5. Lauterbrunnen

    Lauterbrunnen is located in one of the most impressive alpine valleys in Switzerland, enclosed between huge rock faces and high peaks.

    With his 72 waterfalls and its valleys, its flowery pastures and mountain hotels, the Lauterbrunnen valley is one of the Switzerland's most important nature reserves.
