Europe is filled to the brim with fun things to do, and incredible things to see. From historical landmarks to statues that were sculpted by Michaelangelo himself, the list truly does feel endless. But if you really want to feel like you’re on top of the world (and don’t feel like training for five years to scale Mount Everest), we’d highly recommend taking a trip up to Jungfraujoch, the highest train station in Europe.

A Swiss Perk

Located near the gorgeous town of Grindelwald in Switzerland, Jungfraujoch is a train station that sits at a whopping 3,454 meters above sea level, and was built all the way back in the year 1912. It rests atop a snowy mountain year round, and therefore going to the top can feel like you’re climbing mountains in the Himalayas—only you’re on a train, so there’s no real danger involved.

Epic Views

When you get to the top, the views aren’t just gorgeous—they feel like they’re from another plain of existence. You might as well be on another planet as you gaze across the mystical winterland that sits before you. It’s a great moment for serenity and relaxation, as well as some Insta-worthy pics.
