Immerse yourself in a snow-capped mountain wonderland in Switzerland's serene Alpine setting. See the world-renowned Matterhorn, Switzerland's second-highest mountain at 4,478 m (14,962 ft) tall, or zoom down the mountains on toboggan, ski, or snowboard. In the warmer seasons hike around the rolling green hillsides covered with pine trees and picturesque aqua blue lakes. Luxurious cities dotted with cozy wooden chalets and colorful flowerbeds balance quaintness with first-class cultural offerings. Indulge in the country's opulence of milk chocolate, cheese fondue, and keg-carrying St. Bernard dogs.

Jungfrau Region consists of two valleys north of the Jungfrau, a popular mountain-climbing destination standing 4,158 m (13,642 ft). Its extremely steep north face has historically rendered it inaccessible, but today, networks of cable cars and trains send tourists to its peaks, including the Jungfraubahn rail that leads to the highest train station in Europe at 3,454 m (11,332 ft). Its spectacular heights and over 90-percent coverage of rocks and ice has earned the region a spot on the World Heritage List. The natural beauty and magnificence of the Bernese Alps is balanced by a charming local culture complete with lace-making, traditional costume dances, flag waving, and folk music.
