Eiger, Moench and Jungfrau
This is probably the most famous mountain chain in Switzerland, if not all the Alps. The Eiger, or more precisely, the Eiger north face is very well known especially to mountain climbers. The 4,158m high Jungfrau (German for "Virgin") gives its name to the whole region, the "Jungfrauregion". Many tourists know these mountains because of the Jungfrau-Railway. From Kleine Scheidegg, this railway climbs to the, with 3,454m, most elevated train station in Europe, the Jungfraujoch.
The panorama was taken during Winter 2002. The panorama is stitched from three single photos shot from the mountain-top station of the Lauberhorn skiing chairlift near Kleine Scheidegg. On the picture you can see (from left to right): Eiger north face, Eiger, Moench (German for "Monk"), Eigergletscher Train Station, Jungraujoch, the Jungfrau as well as the top of the downhill-ski run from the Lauberhorn to Kleine Scheidegg.
