[edit] General information

The Jungfrau (German for "maiden" or "virgin") is one of the main summits in the Bernese Alps, situated between the cantons of Valais and Berne in Switzerland. Together with the Eiger and Mönch, the Jungfrau forms a massive wall overlooking the Bernese Oberland and is considered one of the most emblematic sights of the Swiss Alps.

The construction of the Jungfraujoch railway east to the summit in the early 20th century made the area one of the most frequented places in the Alps. The Aletsch Glacier lying on the south was declared a World Heritage site in 2001.
