("maiden, virgin"[note 3]
) at 4,158 metres (13,642 ft) is one of the main summits of the Bernese Alps
, located between the northern canton of Bern
and the southern canton of Valais
, halfway between Interlaken
. Together with the Eiger
, the Jungfrau forms a massive wall overlooking the Bernese Oberland
and the Swiss Plateau
, one of the most distinctive sights of the Swiss Alps
The summit was first reached on August 3, 1811 by the Meyer brothers of Aarau
and two chamois
hunters from Valais. The ascent followed a long expedition over the glaciers and high passes of the Bernese Alps. It was not until 1865 that a more direct route on the northern side was opened.
The model is created at a scale of 1:36,000 with NO vertical exaggeration. It features a built-in base, so it sits perfectly on a desk or in a frame.
