Visiting the Jungfraujoch's eternal ice and snow is a once in a lifetime experience as the annual two million visitors can attest. Riding the narrow cog railway to 11,300 ft (3,454 m) is a must. On the journey you pass by the foot of the notorious Eiger North Wall, through tunnels, past polar dog kennels, finally arriving at the heart of the glaciers. The longest glacier in Europe, the Great Aletsch Glacier - 14 miles (23km) - begins at Jungfraujoch, and you can see as far as France and Germany.
The tour bus was 15 minutes late coming from Zurich with an almost full bus. People kindly moved so we could sit together. Everything went better after that. Kid, our guide, was excellent at keeping us together and helping us see the beautiful sights. It was was amazing to walk inside the glacier and to be at the top of Europe.
The sight from the Sphinx tower is astounding! You simply need to be there to believe it! The train ride to the top is awesome! Our guide, Kid (yes, that was his name), was awesome and he paid a lot of attention to each and every member in the group. With him as the tour guide, the trip was really enjoyable. Make sure you take an extra pair of cells or replacement battery as you will need one due to the various photo-worthy areas that you will see throughout the day! This is a must-do if you are visiting the Lucerne, Interlaken or Zurich!
Great tour. Enjoyed the day very much.
