Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe Day Trip from Zurich

Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

The journey begins at the central Zurich bus terminal for the two-hour drive to Lauterbrunnen, passing through beautiful Bernese Oberland and the magnificent Jungfrau region.

Climb aboard a cogwheel train, and wind your way up into the Alps on the Kleine Schneidegg Pass. On the switch-backing ascent, savor the alpine mountain scenery as it opens up before you. Finally, upon reaching the station at Jungrfraujoch at 11,333 feet (3,454 meters), not only are you standing atop Europe’s highest train station, but a panorama of snowcapped peaks and glaciers is right at your feet.

At the Ice Palace, walk inside an alpine glacier and experience the blue-tinted hue. At Sphinx Observatory, gaze out over the Aletsch Glacier—the longest glacier in Europe. Before the train back down the mountain, grab a drink or bite to eat while staring out at the view, where snowcapped peaks of Italy and France rise on the distant horizon.

At the end of the journey, the cogwheel train departs from Jungfraujoch for the ride back down to Lauterbrunnen, where a coach awaits for the journey back to the central bus terminal in Zurich.

Super tour, fabulous guide Kid lots of time for photos and exploring. When it was all finished, it didn't seem as though 11 hours had passed! Would recommend to anyone visiting for a day or a week. Even my friend who is Swiss said to be sure to do this tour....

One of the best experience of our trip to Europe was this amazing trip to Jungfraujoch !

We experienced snow on during our trip in September, at the Sphinx observation point and at the snow fun area. Both areas are a must see at the jungfraujoch... food is mediocre there, so make sure you bring some snacks to best utilize the time at the jungfraujoch... we only wished we had more time at the top!

Peter, our tour guide was very knowledgeable, patient and very friendly. Definitely one of the best tour guides we have had! Our driver, Armando was also safe and very welcoming.

Overall, Jungfraujoch is definitely a must see for anyone who would like to see the mountains in Switzerland.

The tour was unforgettable. The guide Peter and the driver Armando were perfect! There are no words to describe the view during the train trip and in the top of Jungfraujoch. Breathtaking! Fortunately, we found this tour before arriving at Zurich, where we were. It would be very annoying to know about it after returning.
