We got the cog wheel train up to the station that gave us views of the Jungfrau, Eiger and Monch mountains. As you slowly chug up the mountain side if the weather is good you have brilliant views looking down the valleys. From the station...More

This is a must-do for a trip to the Bernese Oberland area. A train takes you gently up to height and then at the top you. An choose a variety of options. A simple one is the lovely garden full of alpine plants. It’s free,...More
