my travels have taken me to different  extraordinary places in this world my   goal was always to look for adventure in the  distance board a plane and leave Switzerland   behind what I did not fully realize is that there  is another paradise waiting to be explored just   30 minutes away from my doorstep a place  perfect for outdoor enthusiasts explorers   and Adventure Seekers you want to know why you  should immediately add this place to your travel   bucket list or write them let me take you to  one of the world's greatest tourist destinations   follow me through a wonderful Adventure in  Switzerland through the jungfra region foreign I think the normal thing to do if  you start an adventure is to take   it slow acclimatize a bit ease in  but this is not what happened here we are here just a couple of minutes outside of  Grindelwald which is this little cute Mountain   Village right behind me it is a very famous  tourist destination because there are a lot of   cable cars going up to several mountains and for  sure you have an amazing view on the North Face of   the famous Mount Eiger but today we're not going  up a mountain but I will jump from a platform   somewhere up there just attached by a rope this  is Megan you think I'll make it yes you have   to it's not a choice should we go and check out  the platform you can see it from down here okay   if you come across a place like this and you  discover this Canyon like a normal person   would maybe think oh how we can maybe hike a  little bit in there or uh let's go have a swim   in the in the river but there are also people  who think you know what let's put a platform   at 90 meters above ground attach ourselves  to like a rope and jump into this Canyon   and swing with 120 kilometers per hour and they  enjoy it wish me luck see you on the other side so you just hop on to this little boss with  some other crazy people and I think within   five to ten minutes you are at the top of the  canyon oh no I was standing there and I had   some minutes to really overthink the decisions  that led me to this point but yeah there was not   really a turning back anymore that's Jeremy from  Singapore I just met him here on our hopefully   not that popcorn what makes you fear the most  the height or the swing actually yeah good so it was finally my turn I got attached at  the road it's good yeah I could step to the   platform okay bye guys and then I looked down  one last breath and then I jumped good okay good thank you breathe now holy [ __ ] I mean it only  lasted for a few seconds but the Free   Fall was unbelievable I mean the first  two seconds I was like having a great   time and then I thought I'm going to die  a little bit and then I could enjoy it   again so oh my God I'm so hyped I want  to do it again for real well done guys how how long actually did you think that you  will die like one second two seconds I felt   my mind just back there once the adrenaline  left my body there was still a whole Canyon   to discover they have this little pathway at  the canyon wall where you can walk further   in and explore what nature built there they  put up like a web construction over the river   which looks really cool and is also really  fun to walk on it is not as thrilling as to   jump but if you're not made for 90 meters  Free Fall then this is a good way to start foreign what is your first impression I think  it's most beautiful place in Europe I I feel   that I I see that uh another countries  German France Spain but this is this piece hiking is definitely one of the best things that  you can do when you travel you can go at a slow   pace far away from busy cities and traffic you can  really take your time to enjoy your surroundings   and you can explore places that are Beyond  reach of a car or a train so we have planned   a very special hike today but before we start  walking we can enjoy a train ride up the hill our day started in weldersfield only a few minutes  away from Interlaken where we hopped on this cute   little Mountain train the train ride was already  the first highlight because you can just sit   there enjoy the nice views while the train does  the hard work of taking you up to that mountain   our station is at the mountain called shiniga  plate you get off the train I think there is   also a little restaurant but we went straight  into the hike now we're starting our way to the   first and on the way there are several beautiful  things waiting to be discovered for us so I bring   you guys along ready for the hike up there's  where I stepped in cow [ __ ] three years ago   well you want to do it again no we started  the hike and we were overwhelmed by the Sea   of flowers up there everything was  in full bloom ah just a paradise look at that look at this View that's the  jungfra region during the hike the Landscapes   are always switching up a bit you start with the  Sea of flowers and then all of a sudden you find   yourself in the middle of a wide open Green  Mountain range with mountain peaks left and   right of you and then it gets a bit Rocky  and we even encountered some snow fields   my legs were getting kind of heavy as we  could finally see the beautiful beautiful   which is my personal favorite  of this hike back there is   it just looks like in a movie like a movie  set look at this movie set down there   we had to make a little picnic there eat some  sandwiches and just soak up this panoramic view we hiked on and we were getting  closer and closer to our final   destination the mountain Fierce near Grindelwald the first over there and I would say  it's about time because my legs are tired   Megan is tired so it's good it's over there  only a few meters away as a little reward   right at the end of the hike there is The  Cliff Walk waiting for you if you dare you   can make your way on a narrow path that is  attached basically to the mountain wall so   they put this railing here and it's safe to walk  alongside the cliff oh and the view over there   look at that see the waterfall I  don't know if you can see it but   out there just looks gorgeous it is great for  pictures it just looks spectacular the way it   is filled into this mountain and yeah it's just  a little candy at the end of your hiking day all right that's it we made it to the  Bear Restaurant first and that is the   final station of our hike today over there  there's a cable car we are going to take   this one to get down the mountain and then  I guess I need some sleep because my whole   body is tired but I think that's what we love  about hiking we get tired it is exhausting the   sun is shining but when we're home in the  evening we're so happy about what we did Jerusalem and Rome then to Greece this is just  breathtaking it's like every inflation look is   a postcode pretty than where we live in  New Orleans New Orleans must be so cool   because of the culture and like the music  and everything Jazz Fest is the time to come I slept so well that night I was  just out but I couldn't sleep in   for too long because we returned  to that same mountain peak the   next day because the fierce has way  more to offer than just nice views good morning guys we are back at the Grindelwald  Fierce uh where we hiked yesterday quite at the   slow pace it was relaxed we could enjoy the views  but today today we are going to have an adventure   day up here should I do it it's okay it's just the  belly down it's like oh God the fierce glider is   another crazy invention that the Jungfrau region  brought to life imagine this you get attached to   metal Eagle like head first and then they  put you up a zip line like 800 meters far   up the mountain just that you can race the same  way back towards the valley with a crazy speed   does that sound like fun thank you nothing  to be hearing it's missing yeah Marco are you excited yeah yeah okay here we go by the way this  is home from Singapore any last   words huh any last words if you  if you don't get off oh my God okay we're all the way up time to  enjoy The View oh and here we go how was it Marco let's do it again let's do  it again over here all good yeah that's great   oh somebody has to fix my hair   ah thanks guys it was fun meeting  you and I also have a little thank   you for being in the video because  you will end up in the video for sure   oh my God this flight was amazing it actually  it feels like flying you're just hanging on   this eagle you look down and I could just  purely enjoy it only a few steps away from   the glider there was already the next attraction  waiting for us after our flight we're now about   to go down we are not just taking the cable car  because that would be very boring we're using   mountain go-karts never done that before but you  have to wear a helmet so I guess it will be wild   I can recommend to every single one of you  to just take it slow at the beginning check   out the brakes check out how everything  works because it is kind of steep sometimes once you get the hang of this cart the race  is great fun there are turns there are likely   on gravel roads and all the time you have an  amazing view on the Swiss mountains compared   to getting down a mountain with the cable car or  hiking or whatever this is just the best option after a short while we were approaching  the lower station we had to go down so   we just dropped the card dropped our  helmet and then hopped in the cable   car to go all the way down again to  Grindelwald my brain is still a bit but it was great good fun but you  have to be careful you get really fast what I like the most is that is so versatile  it's so much of it you know yeah like you got   so much to do here and it's beautiful in on every  corner yeah it's hard to explain yeah it's magical if a whole place is named after something  you should probably go and check out that   something the jungfao region is named after  the mountain young Frau which is one of the   most famous landmarks of Switzerland together  with the mountains those three p's form a unique   mountain range which you can already see from far  far away when you're making your way towards this   area and it's basically one big welcome sign  today we are heading up to the jungfra York   the top of Europe it is basically a mountain  station Place between Mountain young thrall   and Monk and it's up at over 3 400 meters  the starting point of this adventure is here   in Grindelwald at this brand new place called  terminal it's just a cool place to hang out but   um not as cool as to view up there so I would say  we go and check it out the cable car called I get   Express took us to the middle station where we  had to transfer to the highest Railway in Europe after a short while we arrived at the  upper station and if you think now that   you just hop out there get some pictures  and make your way back down then you're   wrong this is like the lobby they have  gift shops they have a restaurant back   there and the coolest thing is they have  a whole tour where you can explore the   magic of this place and I go check it  out and bring you guys along right now   look how beautiful this looks it's like  countless glowing Edelweiss flowers on the walls   back there there's like a little snow globe  Swiss Steam for sure and we have traditional   Swiss music isn't that nice my favorite  place up there is the so-called Ice Palace   so it just got a little bit colder and that has a  simpler reason because the walls here are ice you   walk through that tunnel you have to be careful  that you don't slip because it is slippery it   is ice and then you enter like the main area  where they have beautifully made ice sculptures ah I heard that's a must do here the highest  point of the tour is the platform of the   Sphinx Observatory they use this place to  do scientific experiments and yeah there is   this beautiful Lookout platform where you can  step out and breathe the fresh Mountain Air   foreign after all those attractions and the high altitude  air I was pretty tired we made our way to the   middle station but before we ended this day  there was one other thing waiting for me in   this building which is a restaurant somewhere  over there there is a little hidden happy place   I would even call it a chocolate factory  I had the unique experience to take a look   behind the scenes of one of the world's highest  pastry shops at over 2 300 meters of altitude he went into the pastry shop and it was  already smelling so good they had the   hazelnut croissants prepared and also like  a whole bucket of liquid chocolate it was   very interesting to watch all the steps  that go into those products like those   hazelnut croissants or those white  chocolate bars they did on that day   finally they showed me one of their Specialties  the so-called ayega spitzley basically these are   little Mount aigers made of chocolate they look  so tasty and they have this little white snowy   top so after this exhausting day on the jungfra  and watching them make all those tasty things   for quite a while I was more than excited  to try some of the things they made that day yeah I think I start with this croissant thingy um and now I get to try another specialty  first I have like a milk chocolate one   and everything is handcrafted up here at  over two thousand look at this guy Reckless boom there's a little liquor in it I  like that and then they have another one   which is dark look at this  Irish bitsly let's try it   um oh also some liquor in it delicious   it's spectacular I'm struggling to think  anywhere better I've been this has been   excellent great day great day come  here okay super expensive but it's   only money you can't take it with  you and it's spectacularly beautiful there is no better way to end  an adventure in the jungfrao   region than with a beautiful  sunset from the mountain harder only a short funicular ride from Interlaken takes  you up to the harder comb where you can have   dinner or drinks at the restaurant or just gaze  towards the mountains from the lookout platform a few days have been so eventful adrenaline  kicks fantastic Landscapes and breathtaking views   everywhere and all of that just 30 minutes away  from my apartment I made Unforgettable memories   when people from all over the world and now I  am even more grateful to call this place my home but by now you came to the same conclusion  as I did that Switzerland and especially   the jungfra region should be part  of any travel bucket list but also   always be aware of the beauty which is  right where you are every place on this   planet has its uniqueness and it is just  up to you to go out and Discover it saying
