finterlaken and the Jungrau
“On arriving at the far-famed health resort of Interlaken, every eye is irresistibly drawn to the glorious summit of the Jungfrau, 13670 ft high which can easily and speedily be reached without risks of any kind as shown by the following itinerary:
From Interlaeken the forked line of the Bernese Oberland Railways runs to Lauterbrunnen on the one side, and to Grindelwald on the other.
The Wengernalp Railways runs from Lauterbrunnen over the Little Scheidegg (6770 ft) to Grindelwald, thus connecting the two above mentioned stations. The Little Scheidegg is the starting-point of the Jungfrau Railwa, a marvel of modern engineering skill whose terminus Jungfraujoch (11385 ft) lies in the very midst of the most magnificient alpine scenery.”.
