A literal highlight is the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe. The highest railroad station in Europe is 3454 meters above sea level. Visitors can enjoy a high-alpine wonder world of ice, snow and rock, which they can admire from viewing platforms, on the Aletsch Glacier or in the Ice Palace.
The highest guarded hut in Switzerland, the Mönchsjochhütte, can be reached from the Jungfraujoch on a marked footpath in 45 minutes. The path leads through the high alpine glacier world in the middle of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch.
