Jungfrau, Switzerland – a memorable experience

Of the countries that we visited,  that covered our Europe package tour I found Switzerland gave me reasons to call it the best

It is the cleanest, well laid out country with roads skirted by well maintained lawns dotted by tiny yellow flowers right through.

We spent a week there and the highlight was going up the Alps. The hotel where we stayed had the window overlooking the Alps  a memorable view.

A cable car took us up to the railway station, from Engelberg.  That ride was accompanied by the tapering sound of the bells that were tied round the cows grazing below.  That sound is still reverberating in my ears.

The train took us  to the Jungfrau Railway  Station. That journey was picturesque to say the least.

A gondola took us up to Jungfrau. That rotating gondola gave us a full view of the Alps.   We spent a full day there.  There was a mall and a restaurant and also a post office –  the highest in the world  I posted a card to folks back home.

The walk inside the ice place was yet another rare experience.  Strangely it was not cold inside the ice palace.  There were figurines of different animals carved  from ice. It was slippery but when there is enthusiasm nothing seems difficult.

There was not much snow but we did get to play a bit

The scenic beauty is not something I will forget in a hurry.
