Wengernalp Bahn
The WAB provides cogwheel rail service between Lauterbrunnen, Wengen, Kleine Scheidegg, and Grindelwald. It's been around since 1893 and was electrified almost 90 years ago.

In five minutes, this aerial cablecar whisks you from Wengen to a mountain hotel, restaurant, and cafeteria with panoramic views and a sun terrace.

Jungfraujoch Railway
Europe's highest railway is also one of the most expensive, but my article tells how to minimize your costs.

If you're a railfan, view the WAB passenger train arriving in Kleine Scheidegg station and the WAB container train with control cab in Lauterbrunnen station. (Containers are used to transfer freight from Lauterbrunnen to the car-free village of Wengen.)
