■ Highlights of Schilthorn
▶ Schilthorn Observation Deck
It is famous as the backdrop for the 007 movie "The Great Operation to Rescue His Majesty", and there is a revolving restaurant at the top. You can enjoy the view while having a meal at a restaurant or having a cup of tea while rotating 360 degrees. It is one of the observation decks where you can see the Jungfrau Peak 3 best.
It is known as the most beautiful village in the Jungfrau region. There are not many Korean lodging guests due to the lack of accessibility, but you can feel more secluded than Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen. As early as the Swiss Pass holders were able to come up for free, it is very popular with those who were a little hard to prepare for their trip. It's because you can see the Jungfrau from a distance by investing just half a day.
Lauterbrunnen passes a lot because it is dark under the lamp, but surprisingly, Lauterbrunnen also presents a wonderful scenery. If you go to Jungfrau or Murren and walk to Staubau Falls, you can feel a little of the reason. Especially when it rains in the Jungfrau region, the dreamy feeling is very fantastic.
▶ Trummelbach waterfall
The place that tells why Lauterbrunnen is Lauterbrunnen is the Trummelbach Falls. One of the places worth visiting even when it rains in the Interlaken area. However, it is a fault that the entrance fee is expensive, but it is a place that is worth the price. The Swiss Pass discount does not apply.
▶ Entrance fee to Trummelbach Falls
Adult: CHF 11
Child: CHF 4
