Jungfrau (4,158 m) rises north of the Canton of Valais and south of the Canton of Bern in the Bernese Oberland area. Together with Eiger (3,967 m) and Monch (4,107 m), these 3 mountains create a powerful and iconic massif in the Swiss Alps. The most classic route to its summit is short and not very hard. There are some snow passages up to 40° – 50°. If you climb it from Jungfraujoch, the total elevation gain is 850 meters and takes about 4 hours. Most climbers also spend a night in the Mönchsjoch hut. If you’d like to experience a real feel of an alpine route, select one of the programs listed here below.
