Weather Permits Light Show on Swiss Jungfrau Mountain for Second Time!

Giant light installations illuminated the north face of the Jungfrau Mountain in Switzerland on Wednesday night and through the wee hours on Thursday, as the weather was favorable for hosting the light show, which is a part of the celebrations to mark the centenary year of Jungfrau railway.

The light installations, first put on show by artist Gerry Hofstetter on Jan. 1, attracted much international attention and a second illumination is now planned for this week, according to a statement released by the Jungfrau Mountain Railway authority on Jan. 11.
