Jungfrau, meaning maiden or virgin is the highest peak amongst the angels of the Bernese Oberland region of the Swiss Apls. She’s mostly famous as the sister of the infamous Eiger, but she’s much easier to scale, especially now that a railway now runs up the inside of the mountain taking you to the world’s highest railway station, Jungfraujoch. If you want to get higher than the 3454metres where the station sits in Jungfrau’s saddle there are sections of snow and ice to negotiate on top of a 40 to 50 degree slope.
