In summer, visitors with the right footwear can take a 45-minute mountain shoe hike in the thin air from the eastern glacier plateau to the Mönchsjoch.
What will I see?
You will see the majestic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau summits, together with close-up views of the longest glacial flow. The Jungfrau railway travels from the heart of the mountains to Europe’s highest lying mountain station at 3454 meter altitude.
From Kleine Scheidegg, the cog-wheel railway travels year-round through the tunnel and over the steep climb up to the Jungfraujoch.The tunnel from the Eiger Glacier station, built between 1896 and 1912, is seven kilometres long. Two stops in the tunnel permit spectacular views of the Eiger north wall and surrounding glacier world.
1 or 2 different lenses are usually enough during a shoot as there are many variations with angles, light, exposure time and of course the different locations and subjects. The list below gives you some ideas so that you can set your personal preferences
General Lenses: 24-70, 24-105 for a wide range of photo types and panoramas
