Jungfrau Region in short

  • Vast, varied ski area
  • Great for beginner and intermediate skiers
  • Outstanding off-piste skiing

The Jungfrau Region is made up of the ski resorts of Grindelwald, Interlaken, Wengen, Mürren, Lauterbrunnen and Beatenberg. With nearly 230km of pristine ski slopes offering something for every level and taste, the ski resorts in the Jungfrau linked ski area are excellent choices for any kind of ski holidays, from family ski holidays to groups of expert skiers looking for some thrills. From Grindelwald, there are links to the First ski area, as well as directly into the Wengen ski area at Kleine Scheidegg and Männlichen. Mürren is also easily accessible with the same Jungfrau ski pass.

There are over 70km of blue runs in the Jungfrau Region but it's the red runs that win first prize with nearly 120km of varied runs for intermediate skiers to sink their teeth into. The World Cup piste at Wengen is a must for experienced skiers. Grindelwald, the largest ski resort in the Jungfrau ski area, provides extensive skiing and snowboarding to suit all abilities, with a half pipe and snow park as well as endless kilometres of sledging runs. Snow quality is assured thanks to the high altitude and the dozens of snow cannons. Excellent ski schools and childcare facilities make this a dream destination for family ski holidays in Switzerland. A visit to the Jungfrau Region is not complete without a day trip to the Jungfraujoch, otherwise known as the Top of Europe, with views of the Eiger and Aletsch glaciers. The various ski resorts of the Jungfrau Region can be reached from Geneva Airport, Zurich Airport or by car from Calais.

In the tracks of James Bond

The Piz Gloria revolving restaurant on the Schilthorn at Mürren was the setting for much of the action in the famous 1969 James Bond ski film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service. This iconic film helped inspire a love of skiing among James Bond fans in Britain and beyond. A visit to the restaurant today is a must-do for any Bond fans! Relive the excitement in a spectacular setting in the Bernese Alps.

View from the Top of Europe

The Jungfraujoch lies between the Eiger (3970m), Mönch (4099m) and Jungfrau (4158m) mountain peaks and is known as the Top of Europe, both for its lofty position and its claim as Europe's highest railway station. It's easiest to get to the Jungfraujoch from Grindelwald, where the train passes through on its way up. Unfortunately you can't ski back down into the Jungfrau Region, so this is more of a day trip that you can make if you have an extra day on your ski holiday. Starting in the 2019/20 ski season, a cable car will facilitate access to the Jungfraujoch.

The Jungfrau Region will inaugurate two new lifts for the 2019-20 ski season.

It’s even possible that you’ll save money vs. flying if you carpool with a few friends or family, and you’ll be able to bring your skis on a luggage rack and stuff the boot of your car full of luggage – a vast improvement from budget airlines!
