A gondola (gondelbahn) connects Grindelwald with Männlichen, where a cable car goes down to Wengen (Luftseilbahn Wengen-Mannlichen). From Mannlichen station, walk uphill 15 minutes for a stunning view. The world's longest continuous rack and pinion railway (Wengernalpbahn) goes from Grindelwald up to Kleine Scheidegg and down to Wengen and Lauterbrunnen. From Kleine Scheidegg, another cog train (Jungfraubahn) ascends steeply inside the Eiger to Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe. Two vertical miles (3000 meters) of mountain rise from valley bottom to Eiger top. UNESCO lists “Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch” as a World Heritage Area (2001, 2007). Panorama stitched from 7 images.
