Trek to Schilthorn Photo Gallery - Part 1

So which mountain should you go up - Schilthorn or Jungfrau or both? I picked Schilthorn to get away from the group tours, and the webcams showed a glorious day up there. The lookout at Piz Gloria stands at 2970m above sea level and offers commanding views of Jungfrau all the way beyond the mountains.

With a Swiss Travel Pass on hand, going up this mountain is substantially cheaper than Top of Europe.

The cable car up to Grutschalp is just across the street from Lauterbrunnen's train station.

After the short ride uphill, transfer to a train for a very scenic ride to Murren. Pick a window seat on the left side so you can see the valley and mountains during the ride.

Upon arrival in Murren, walk 20 minutes across town to another cable car for the ascent up to Schilthorn. It's a very lovely walk with crisp mountain air and views throughout. Imagine living here and soaking up the views everyday. You can also stop by the grocery store to stock up on supplies en route.

I chose to live downhill in Lauterbrunnen so I don't have to haul my luggage so far from the train station, although with these views, I had slight regrets.
