Top and right: Views of an avalanche (that probably had happened years before) as seen from strategically-placed viewing windows inside the Eiger Mountain station, via the Swiss railways that offers train travel to the summit of the Jungfrau.

The station at the summit - the Jungfraujoch - is the highest railway station in Europe at more than 11,300 feet.

The trip up is an incredible journey and worth the 'steep' cost.
