Europe Trip Part IV: Jungfrau Top of Europe

Salam everyone. How's raya? I am keen to keep the Europe Trip 2014 documented. So here goes, our fourth day in Swiss. We were already in Interlaken and woke up to this view,

Interlaken Jungfrau

Masya Allah.

We stayed near Interlaken West. To take the train to Jungfrau, we need to take it from Interlaken OST. To reach the Jungfrau from Interlaken OST, we need to change 2 times.

Morning walk from our Hotel to train station.

I bought the ticket online via www.jungfrau.ch and we only need to bring the online printed ticket.

The ticket is rather expensive. Mind you that this is the price AFTER  50% discount because we purchased the Swiss Pass. So keep that in mind if you considering to go to Jungfrau and which Rail Pass to choose from.

Train 1: Interlaken OST to Kleine Scheidegg via Grindewald or Lauterbrunnen.

Train 2: Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch

The whole journey took approximately 2 and 1/2 hours. Come to think of it, it took quite some time right? But we hardly felt the journey thanks to the AMAZING view all the way.

The place is rather comfortable. There are many sections. You only need to follow the arrow to cover the whole place.

But of course, one of the main attraction is the Sphinx. Where you can see the outdoor view of the mountains. It is simply breathtaking.

Then we decided to go back to the Sphinx to utilize my monopod... hence for some #selfie moment.  Husna was sleeping at this time. We just "parked" her nearby. hehe.

Everybody was looking at us. I assumed they were amazed with our monopod and remote. lol. We have remarks like

"good photography technique.."

The whole on-your-own tour took about 2 hours.

On our way down, this was at Kleine Scheidegg. You can reach Interlaken OST via both platform. We just chosed the one thats available there at that time. I think it was via Grindewald.

Che Mek was hungry. We tapau bread and nutella from our hotel. Btw, food in Swiss is expensive and it's hard to get tuna baguette. The hotel is expensive. Cut the story short, everything is expensive.

However, their hospitality and customer service is TIP TOP and AMAZING..!!! I used to think British is great but Swiss is SUPERB..!

Little example, under 6yo, can ride the train free. But the ticket lady gave Husna child ticket and even stamp the ticket. Hehe. She loves it and would not let go of her ticket. And everytime on train/tube/metro ride even when in London and Paris, she would ask "yer ticket Na?"
