Episode 8: Visiting the Jungfrau Region

September 8, 2020 Last Updated on September 15, 2021

Interview with Jana Amacher of Jungfrau Region Tourism

In previous episodes of the podcast I’ve chatted with experts from Interlaken Tourism, Jungfrau Railways and the Schilthorn about the huge array of things to do in the Jungfrau Region. In Episode 8, we dive a little deeper and focus on the five main villages in the Jungfrau Region and their highlights and main attractions.

My guest, Jana Amacher of Jungfrau Region Tourism, provides plenty of useful tips for those planning to visit this stunning part of Switzerland.

Topics covered include summer and winter activities (including hiking and skiing), the unique characteristics of the five main villages – Grindelwald, Wengen, Murren, Lauterbrunnen and Meiringen – and Jana’s favourite ‘hidden gems’.


Show Notes

Some of the topics that Jana discusses are:

  • Jungfrau Eiger Walk – 1-hour easy hike from Eigergletscher station to Kleine Scheidegg station
  • Velogemel – a wooden snow bike unique to Grindelwald (watch a short video here)
  • Big Pintenfritz – Europe’s longest sled run which starts at Faulhorn above Grindelwald
  • Ascent and descent of cattle to/from the higher pastures – The ascent is called Alpabfahrt, the descent is called Alpabzug
  • Her ‘hidden gems’ Rosenlaui Glacier Gorge and Lobhorn Hut trail
