Eismeer Glacier & Station, on Jungfraujoch Railway, Switzerland, Europe.
From inside the east face of the Eiger at Eismeer Station (3159 m) of the Jungfraujoch Railway, see the Schreckhorn (at center) and Eismeer Glacier ("Sea of Ice" in foreground), in Bern canton of Switzerland. Engineering the dramatic cog-wheel Jungfraujochbahn required 16 years (1898-1912) to carve through the Eiger and Mönch for 7 kilometers (4.3 mi), with gradients of up to 25%. Kleine Scheidegg entry station can be reached by trains from Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. The train ride from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch (the highest railway station in Europe) takes 50 minutes including stops at Eigerwand and Eismeer viewing portals. Downhill return takes just 35 minutes. The Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch region is honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
