The Jungfrau region is home to two classic Swiss ski resorts, Wengen and Grindelwald and to the large lakeside summer resort of Interlaken, also including Harder Kulm (Top of Interlaken) and Schynige Platte (Top of Swiss Tradition)
Wengen is renowned for its Lauberhorn World Cup Downhill course, one of the most demanding on the circuit. Every January world cup racers come to town and attract crowds of up to 30,000.
The combined lift-connected ski areas of Wengen and Grindelwald offer 160km of pistes with lifts reaching up to an altitude of 2500m.
The ski area is home to Europe’s highest railway station, the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe at 3454m.
One of the world’s most advanced lifts, the Eiger Express cable car, opened last season. It transports skiers from Grindelwald to the heart of the Wengen-Grindelwald ski area on the Eigergletscher in 15 minutes.
