JUNGFRAUJOCH (3471 m / 11400 ft), Swiss Alps, Interlaken, Bern, Switzerland
JUNGFRAUJOCH (3471 m / 11400 ft), Swiss Alps, Interlaken, Bern, Switzerland
JUNGFRAUJOCH Jungfraujoch (el. 3471 m.) is a col or saddle between the Monch and the Jungfrau in the Bernese Alps on the boundary between the cantons of Bern and Valais. Strictly, the Jungfraujoch is the lowest point on the mountain ridge between Monch and Jungfrau, at 3471 m. It is just above this location that the mountain station of Jungfraubahn is located, Jungfraujoch railway station, which at an elevation of 3,454 metres is the highest railway station in Europe. The Jungfraujoch is often called the "Top of Europe" in tourist literature. Not far east of the Joch rises a peak called the Sphinx, which tops out at an elevation of 3,571 metres. There is an elevator to the summit of the Sphinx, where a small viewing platform and the Sphinx Observatory are located. The Jungfraujoch is also home to one of the Global Atmosphere Watch's atmospheric research stations. The Jungfraujoch can only be accessed through a 7.3 km long cog railway tunnel, served by the Jungfraubahn, the highest in a series of cooperating railway companies that provide access to the Jungfraujoch from Interlaken. THE TUNNEL Adolf Guyer-Zeller first thought of the idea of a tunnel in 1893 and at that point he had planned to have 7 stations inside the tunnel before reaching what is now the Sphinx. The building of the tunnel started in July 27, 1896 and took 16 years to complete. The construction phase was troubled by many problems including monetary shortages, inclement weather and mounting deaths due to construction accidents. The worst accident occurred in 1908, when 30 tons of dynamite accidentally exploded. Once construction was halted, the tunnel reached only to the height of the Jungfraujoch, rather than the Sphinx, with only two intermediate stations. However, even in its current state, the Jungfraubahn is an awesome achievement in engineering and construction, still holding the title for highest railway in Europe. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia JUNGFRAUJOCH RAILWAY Switzerland’s most popular (and expensive) mountain railway excursion is unmissable. Trains trundle through lush countryside south from Interlaken before coiling spectacularly up across either Wengen or Grindlewald’s mountain pastures, breaking the treeline at Kleine Scheidegg and tunnelling clean through the Eiger to emerge at the JUNGFRAUJOCH, an icy, windswept col at 3454m, just beneath the Jungfrau summit. It’s the site of the highest train station in Europe, and offers an unforgettable experience of the mountains. You’d be missing out if you decided against shelling out the exorbitant sums necessary to reach the place. It takes two and a half hours to reach the summit from Interlaken, and weather conditions can change rapidly. Bring sunglasses as: the snows never melt up here, and if the sky is blue, the sun’s glare and glitter can be painful. There are two routes to the top. Trains head southwest from Interlaken Ost along the valley floor to Lauterbrunnen, from where you pick up the mountain line which climbs through Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg; different trains head southeast from Interlaken Ost to Grindelwald, where you change for the climb, arriving at Kleine Scheidegg from the other direction. All trains terminate at Kleine Scheidegg, where you must change for the final pull to Jungfraujoch – the popular practice is to go up one way and down the other. Currently, the adult round-trip fare to Jungfraujoch from Interlaken is a budget-crunching Fr.159 – the Jungfraubahnen Pass, and the broader Bernese Oberland Regional Pass, both pointlessly stop short at Kleine Scheidegg, requiring passholders to shell out an extra Fr.50 to reach the summit. One way to cut costs is to take advantage of the discounted Good Morning ticket (Fr.120; Eurail Fr.105; Swiss Pass Fr.94), valid if you travel up on the first train of the day (6.35am from Interlaken), and leave the summit by noon (or Nov–April: first or second train plus later departure permitted). Walking some sections of the journey, up or down, is perfectly feasible in summer, and can also save plenty, with fares from intermediate points along the route considerably lower. The undiscounted Good Morning ticket from Grindelwald is Fr.103, from Lauterbrunnen Fr.102, from Wengen Fr.91, and from Kleine Scheidegg Fr.58. Excellent transport networks and vista-rich footpaths linking all stations mean that with judicious use of a hiking map and timetable you can see and do a great deal in a day and still get back to Interlaken, or even Bern or Zurich, by bedtime. Excerpt from switzerland.isyours.com JUNGFRAU Jungfrau is one of the most well known mountains in all of Switzerland. The Ordinary route to the summit is short and has difficulty level PD -Peu difficile - not very hard. There are passages of snow and ice up to 40° - 50° . Ascent from Jungfraujoch involves 850 meter elevation gain and takes approx 4 hrs. Most climbers spend a night in the cozy and comfortable Monchsjochhu

13 de Junho Homenageamos o Dia do Turista, Brasil Pesquisas e Fotos Anexas obtidas via Internet (artigo extenso, postarei em capitulos) Embora nao haja uma definicao unica do que seja Turismo, as Recomendacoes da Organizacao Mundial de Turismo/Nacoes Unidas sobre Estatisticas de Turismo, o definem como "as atividades que as pessoas realizam durante suas viagens e permanencia em lugares distintos dos que vivem, por um periodo de tempo inferior a um ano consecutivo, com fins de lazer, negocios e outros." Turista e um visitante que desloca-se voluntariamente por periodo de tempo igual ou superior a vinte e quatro horas para local diferente da sua residencia e do seu trabalho sem, este ter por motivacao, a obtencao de lucro. Segundo autores, existem duas linhas de pensamentos, no qual a Historia do Turismo se divide. A primeira seria que e o ocio, descanso, cultura, saude, negocios ou relacoes familiares. Estes deslocamentos se distinguem por sua finalidade dos outros tipos de viagens motivados por guerras, movimentos migratorios, conquista, comercio, etc. Nao obstante o turismo tem antecedentes historicos claros. Depois, se concretizaria com o entao movimento da Revolucao Industrial. A segunda linha de pensamento se baseia em que o Turismo realmente se iniciou com a Revolucao Industrial, visto que os deslocamentos tinham como intuito o lazer. Entre 1950 e 1973 se inicia a falar de “boom” turistico. O turismo internacional cresce a um ritmo superior ao de toda a sua historia. Este desenvolvimento e consequencia da nova ordem internacional, a estabilidade social e o desenvolvimento da cultura do ocio no mundo ocidental. Nesta epoca se comeca a legislar sobre o setor. A recuperacao economica, especialmente da Alemanha e do Japao, foi uma assombrosa elevacao dos niveis de renda destes paises e fazendo surgir uma classe media estavel que comeca a interessar-se por viagens. Entretanto com a recuperacao elevando o nivel de vida de setores mais importantes da populacao dos paises ocidentais, surge a chamada sociedade do bem-estar que uma vez com as suas necessidades basicas atendidas passa a buscar o atendimento de novas necessidades, aparecendo neste momento a formacao educacional e o interesse por viajar e conhecer outras culturas. Por outra parte a nova legislacao trabalhista adotando a semana inglesa de 5 dias de trabalho, a reducao da jornada de 40 horas semanais, a ampliacao das coberturas sociais (jubilacion, desemprego, invalidez,…), potencializam em grande medida o desenvolvimento do ocio e do turismo. Tambem estes sao os anos em que se desenvolvem os grandes nucleos urbanos e se evidencia a massificacao, surge tambem o desejo de evasao, escapar da rotina das cidades e descansar as mentes da pressao. Nestes anos se desenvolve a producao de carros em serie o que permite acesso cada vez maior a populacao deste bem, assim com a construcao de mais estradas, permite-se um maior fluxo de viajantes. De fato, a nova estrada dos Alpes que atravessa a Suica de norte a sul supondo a perda da hegemonia deste pais como nucleo receptor, pois eles iam agora cruzar a Suica para dirigir-se a outros paises com melhor clima. A evasao e substituida pela recreacao, o que se supoem um golpe definitivo para as companhias navais, que se veem obrigadas a destinar seus barcos aos cruzeiros. Todos estes fatores nos levam a era da estandardizacao padronizando os produtos turisticos. Os grandes operadores turisticos lancam ao mercado milhoes de pacotes turisticos identicos. Na grande maioria utiliza-se de voos charter, que barateiam o produto e o popularizam. No principio deste periodo (1950) havia 25 milhoes de turistas, e ao finalizar (1973) havia 190 milhoes. No obstante, esta etapa tambem se caracteriza pela falta de experiencia, o que implica as seguintes consequencias. Como a falta de planejamento (se constroi sem fazer nenhuma previsao minima da demanda ou dos impactos ambientais e sociais que se podem surgir com a chegada massiva de turistas) e o colonialismo turistico (existe uma grande dependencia dos operadores estrangeiros estadunidenses, britanicos e alemaes fundamentalmente). Na decada de 1970 a crise energetica e a consequente inflacao, especialmente sentida no setor dos transportes ocasionam um novo periodo de crise para a industria turistica que se estende ate 1978. Esta recessao implica uma reducao da capacidade de abaixar os custos e precos para propor uma massificacao da oferta e da demanda. Na decada de 1980 o nivel de vida volta a elevar-se e o turismo se converte no motor economico de muitos paises. Esta aceleracao do desenvolvimento ocorre devido a melhoria dos transportes com novos e melhores avioes da Boeing e da Airbus, trens de alta velocidade e a consolidacao dos novos charter, tambem observa-se um duro competidor para as companhias regulares que se vem obrigadas a criar suas proprias filiares charter. Nestes anos se produz uma internacionalizacao muito marcante das grandes empresas hoteleira
