When you hear the word “Switzerland,” what do you envision?
Perhaps you see deep, clear lakes flanked by steep rock faces and towering, eternally snow-capped peaks. Maybe you imagine an impossibly green alpine meadow dotted with delicate, colorful wildflowers. You might see postcard villages perched in deep, narrow valleys or pasted on dangerously steep mountainsides. Or perhaps you find yourself transported to a heavenly world of powdery ski runs and warm, inviting chalets.
Cliché as they are, none of these scenes are wrong – all of them can be found in the Jungfrau region, one of Switzerland’s most popular and quintessentially “Swiss” tourist destinations.
