JUNGFRAU REGION, SWITZERLAND
About The Resort
The Jungfrau Region is a smaller portion of the Bernese Oberland, located at the foot of the Bernese Alps. The region includes the Jungfrau massif, the Valley of Lauterbrunnen, Schilthorn, Murren, Gimmelwald, Grindelwald, and Interlaken.
Tour the 2,681-meter Faulhorn, one of Switzerland's most renowned viewpoints, from which you can see the breathtaking peaks of the Bernese Oberland in all their glory. Enjoy the Trummelbach Falls inside the Schwarze Monch, which will swirl through a corkscrew-shaped vertical gorge carved out by the meltwaters from the giant ice walls of the Jungfrau itself, the Eiger, and the Monch.
Most of all, the Alpine slopes hold over 200 kilometers of slopes and runs for both skiers and snowboarders alike, making this region one of the top ski resorts in Europe.
