In 19th-century Switzerland, it seemed promoter’s wildest dream: a resort atop the 4,158-meter Jungfrau. A railroad to haul tourists there. Thousands would pay to ride! You can’t, of course, lay tracks on such an avalanche-swept peak. So, Adolph Guyer built his railroad inside the mountain. Here’s a photographic tour.

How to enjoy the high Alps and the beautiful lakes of central Switzerland. Go by boat then train to Lauterbrunnen and take the cable car to Muerren for a view of the Jungfrau.

I would like to reveal a really good restaurant we discovered in Interlaken recently. That is the Asian Restaurant on top of the Casa Grande near the train station. The food was outstanding and the prices very reasonable.

Sunny Days B&B, room number 2. We left the doors to the balcony open so in the morning we could see the Jungfrau. Talk about incredible. Could not rise early to see a more awe-inspiring sight. Check out their website.
