Train of Wengeralpbahn descending from Kleine Scheidegg towards Grindelwald, with massive north face of the Eiger mountain in the background.
Wengeralpbahn, built with a gauge of 800 mm, was opened in 1893. The line starts from Lauterbrunnen, climbs via carless resort village of Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg where it has connection with Jungfraubahn. From Kleine Scheidegg the line descends to Grindelwald. With its 19 km of length,
Wengeralpbahn is the longest continuous cogwheel line in the world.
