Plot The Jungfrau, one of the most magnificent of the Swiss mountains, is 13,670 feet high and is situated in the Bernese Alps twelve miles from the important center of Interlaken. The film opens with a marvelously clear picture of a crowd of people watching a balloon ascent being made for a cup offered by the London Daily Mirror. In the distance is the Jungfrau, its snow-clad peak clearly outlined against the blue sky. We see the preparations for the ascent and when the balloon is fully inflated it rises rapidly, the camera following it as it mounts the heavens. Next we see a panorama including views of the following peaks in the order named: Sulverhorn, Snowhorn, Jungfrau and Monch. The sky is dark and full of presage of an approaching storm. Then come close views of the Monch and Eiger as seen from the Jungfrau. We next see a couple of American tourists passing through a tunnel of ice in order to reach the top of the Jungfrau. A splendid view of the Aletach glacier is next brought before us. Eternal snow is on the ground for we are now 10,500 feet high. Next is visualized the saddle of the Jungfrau. Four tourists are here seen crossing an expanse of snow into which they sink heavily at every step. The flag flying a few score yards away marks the position of a sheer precipice 3,000 feet down. And last, but not least, we see the Valley of Lauterbrunnen, with Interlaken in the far distance and close views of the Schreckhorn.... search for A Visit to the Jungfrau, Switzerland on IMDb
