Jungfrau - The Top of Europe

by Zack

snow 0 °C

Yesterday we went up the Jungfrau. It is the highest accessible point in Europe because of the cog trainline that runs from Interlaken to the top of the Jungfrau. The Jungfrau is 4158m above sea level and the train takes 2 hours to get to the top.

The train goes up the Eiger also. At the top of the Jungfrau there is an ice palace in the middle of a glacier. We had lunch at the top. Ellie and I had pork schnitzel. Dad had goulash soup and mum had veal and noodles.

It was actually snowing at the top in summer! There are 2 landings where you can go outside in the snow. The 1st landing you can normally go for ski trips but there was a blizzard with 80 km winds. We actually went outside into the blizzard. The second landing is up at the observation deck and you can't go in the snow but you can go outside.
