The route connects Lauterbrunnen to to the carless village of Wengen and travels via Wengen and Wengernalp up to Kleine Scheidegg at 6762 feet, where it connects with the Jungfrau Railway which travels onward to the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe Station. The Wengernalp railway is the longest cog wheel rack and pinion railway in Switzerland, running legacy classic trains and newer stock. It travels in two routes connecting Lauterbrunnen, Wengen and Grindelwald over the Kleine Scheidegg.
