THE MAJESTIC JUNGFRAU
Since 1943, the date of the inauguration of Berghaus, thousands of people have deepened their knowledge of God the Creator and Savior. The majestic Jungfrau which faces Village Isenfluh. The Jungfrau is a summit of the Alps individualized entirely in Switzerland in the massif of the Bernese Alps. With its neighbor the Eiger and Mönch, it forms a triptych, with an alignment of north faces.
The name Jungfrau (« maiden, virgin »), which refers to the highest of the three prominent mountains overlooking the Interlaken region, along with the Mönch (« monk ») and the Eiger (« ogre »), is most likely derived from the name Jungfrauenberg given to Wengernalp, the alpine meadow directly facing the huge northern side of the Jungfrau, across the Trummelbach gorge. Wengernalp was so named for the nuns of Interlaken Monastery, its historical owner. Contrary to popular belief, the name did not originate from the appearance of the snow-covered mountain, the latter looking like a veiled woman.
