Mönch and Jungfrau: the famous Berner great summits

Switzerland - Europe

Jungfrau, bernese oberland - Jungfrau, bernese oberland
10.08 - 11.08.2019
From the most famous triumvirate of the Alps we climb the Mönch and the Jungfrau. High above Grindelwald and the Aletsch Glacier, we enjoy a fantastic view of the surrounding four-thousander.
Due to the comfortable arrival and return journey with the Jungfrau Railway an ascent of these two big Bernese Oberland summits is well possible on a weekend. The Mönchsjochhütte of the mountain guide association Grindelwald is modern and well managed. Thus nothing stands in the way of an enjoyable weekend!

Your advantages at a glance:

- Easy access by public transport
- the two highest of the famous triumvirate Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau
- 1 night in the well-run Mönchsjoch hut
- 2 guests per guide for maximum safety
- we know this area very well!

This tour can be booked at an early reservation as a private tour on any date!
