by swisschambei in Business

The Jungfrau Region in Switzerland is looking forward to receiving more Chinese tourists, said Jungfrau Railways CEO Urs Kessler during a recent interview with Xinhua. A well-known scenic spot and snow sports resort, the Jungfrau Region is located in central Switzerland. At 4,158 meters above sea level, it is one of the main summits of the Bernese Alps. Its beautiful glaciers and snow scenes attract tourists from all over the world, and in 2001, UNESCO listed the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch as a World Heritage Site. In recent years, Kessler said, Jungfrau Railways has received a large number of Chinese tourists, especially in 2019 before the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic. Jungfrau Railways offers an important means of transportation for tourists. Construction began on the pioneering project in 1896, and was completed in 1912. With a total length of 9.3 kilometers, the last station on the line, Jungfraujoch — Top of Europe — is 3,454 meters above sea level, making it the highest railway station in Europe.
