The special breed of Greenland-dogs was living on Jungfraujoch in the so-called "Polarhundekolonie" for more than 100 years. At first they were needed in order to supply the workers and engeneers building the train-track, later-on they became a tourist-attraction and during summer you may go around the glacier in sleds torn by these Greenland-dogs.
The living-quaters of the dogs were close to Eigergletscher and it was possible to be visited by tourists upon appointment - see the telephone-number below !
The dogs lived there in small groups and could run around freely in a fenced area at the Eiger-glacier or return to their stables. They also participates in various dog-sledge-racinges and TV-productions.
