Switzerland - Scaling The Jungfrau Region

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Surrounded by Switzerland's mountain landscape, it's easy to see why the Swiss understand the value of nature. It is not a luxury reserved for a few, but a treasure shared by all. Joseph travels into the Grindelwald Valley to experience the grandeur of Switzerland's most typically-Swiss region - the Jungfrau. Constantly shadowed by the towering heights of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau peaks, all above 12, 000 feet, Joseph partakes of Swiss mountain culture at local street fairs and festivals. He gets to take part in a cheese-making demonstration and run with the goats through the streets of Wengen, a car-free mountain town. To get an up-close experience with the peaks he hikes to the Gleckstein, a mountain hut for climbers, and literally tops off his adventure with a train journey to the highest train station in Europe, the Jungfraujoch.
