Swiss Jungfraubahn Winter Festival Fine Art Vintage Giclee Print

This is a vintage fine art giclee print by Emil Cardinaux featuring an advertising for the Jungfrau Railway to travel to and around Switzerland to enjoy the winter festival. Apparently dog sledding was a popular way to see the mountains also. Jungfrau is the pioneer of all mountain railways, began operating a year-round service from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch in 1912. The mountain terminus is the Jungfraujoch, altitude 3454 metres, where Europe's highest-altitude railway station is housed in two underground station halls. The Jungfrau (German: ' virgin' ) is the highest peak of a mountain massif of the same name, located in the Bernese Oberland region of the Swiss Alps, overlooking Wengen. The other two peaks are the Eiger (3,970 m) with its famous north face, and the Mönch (4,099 m). The summit of the mountain was first reached in 1811 by the Meyer brothers of Aarau. Once difficult to access, the Jungfraubahn cog railway now runs inside the mountain, up to the Jungfraujoch railway station at 3,454 m (11,333 ft), the highest in Europe.

The quick frame option comes ready to hang and framed as shown, with acrylic glass and a solid wood black frame, no mats.
