Mountain Wild Flowers of the Jungfrau Region

mountain wildflowers cover the hills in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland

The Jungfrau region in Switzerland is a beautiful place to hike. When the mountain wildflowers bloom it is like hiking through a sea of colours.

One of my favorite parts about hiking is when you get really, really lucky and discover mountain wildflowers are everywhere. The Jungfrau region does not disappoint with this. It’s not uncommon to see them when hiking, but it’s a special treat when they cover mountains in a sea of color.

And that’s exactly what I was treated to on a recent trip to the Jungfrau Region of Switzerland.  We took the Grindelwald gondola directly from Grindelwald where we were staying to the First.  It’s the last stop on the gondola and the start of the trail to Lake Bachalpsee.  

You can either turn around or continue on up to the Faulhorn as did for views over the other side of the mountain to the Interlaken region.  I’ll write all about the hike in an upcoming  post, but in the meantime, I wanted to share these photos with you:

Following our time in the Jungfrau region, we drove about an hour to the Gelmer Funicular, the steepest in Europe.  You ride it to Lake Gelmer where wildflowers are also abundant. The other place in Europe that I’ve visited that was spectacular for wildflowers was along the Tour du Mont Blanc.  Have any other recommendations for me?  I’d love to hear them!

  2. Recently I attempted to find a nature reserve-center, located in the San Pedro, Palace Verde Sea side region. We did find the center, and some interesting if not extremely dry and brittle plant life. Of course this time of year has been so, so warm that it was not surprising that most of the plant life consisted of Brush and Conifer trees. There were also some trees that looked something like Olive trees but were not. The reason I am posting here is because you have a photo of wild flowers holding a Snail. For the high mountain region you are representing that seems odd. It seems like something possibly more common to areas such as the Seaside nature center I visited in 95 degree weather on Sunday?? Snails of the type that eat plants are more usual to the Seaside regions, and humid climates.

    • @Keirsti, I was surprised to see a snail so high up as well, but have seem them on other occasions as well. I recently even spotted an Alpine salamander at 1700m!
