The Bernese Alps, natural beauty
The north face (“Nordwand”) of the Eiger has been nicknamed “Mordwand” meaning “Death Wall”.
More than 60 people have died trying to climb the steep north face of the Eiger.
The Jungfrau-Aletsch region in the Bernese Alps is the largest glaciated area in western Eurasia.
The Bernese Alps are one of the largest ranges in the Alps chain, which run 800km through Europe.
At 3,471m, the Jungfraujoch is the highest railway station in Europe.
Passengers on the Jungfraubahn (Jungfrau train) can enjoy views of the Alps through windows in the side of the mountains.
