This was our day to climb into the Swiss Alps to the highest tourist point available.
We left Interlaken at 8:30 to begin the approximate three hour climb to the top. This is an amazing journey. You have to change trains twice after leaving Interlaken. Each change is a steeper ascent toward the summit. The last two are by clog train.
We chose the eastern route for there first leg. I had been ...
... water-proof coats, but many visitors couldn't spend much time outside because they came up with only the summer clothes on their backs. Even we were chilled by the time we took the elevator ride back down into the complex.

Waking the next morning, it seemed the heavens were holding back for us to attempt an assault on the highest point in Europe (by train anyway). We were hoping to make it to the ice glaciers but sadly the bad weather has dropped a lot of snow the previous night which has covered the ice glaciers and they are closed. We arrive at Jungfrau by train, we continue our final accent by an elevator. As the doors open ...
