It’s that time of year when the heat can be brutal, and we are all thankful for air conditioning. Naturally, as a self-professed warm weather lover, I’m thinking of Jungfraujoch, Switzerland. Yesterday it reached a high of 41 degrees Fahrenheit in Jungfraujoch. No need for air conditioning!
Are you thinking, “Why in the world would anyone visit such a cold place?” The answer is simple; the view will take your breath away. On one side you’ll see the Swiss Mittelland towards the Vosges, on the other, the Aletsch Glacier, lined with four thousand-meter peaks. Standing on the Jungfraujoch 3,454 meters above sea level, you can feel it with your first step: you’re in a different world. It’s one you have to experience. Throughout the year, the train makes its way up to the heart of the UNESCO heritage site “Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch.”
