Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe Day Trip from Zurich

Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

Start your 11.5-hour day trip from the bus terminal in central Zurich and depart by coach for the scenic 2-hour journey south. Travel among the towering peaks of Switzerland's Bernese Oberland to Lauterbrunnen, where a cogwheel train carries you up to Europe’s highest-altitude train station, situated in a UNESCO-listed Alpine wilderness.

The 50-minute train ride winds through the Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass in the Burnese Alps. Upon arrival at Jungfraujoch, situated at an elevation of 11,333 feet, disembark at the Top of Europe and head to the Alpine Sensation — a round-tour subway opened to mark the centenary of the Jungfrau Railway. 

Head to the Ice Palace for a glacier walk and stop at the Sphinx Observatory for sweeping views of Europe's longest glacier: Aletsch Glacier. From viewing platforms, enjoy a 360-degree panorama of this winter wonderland draped in a breathtaking display of ice and snow. On a clear day, look beyond to the mountain peaks of neighboring Italy and France. 

If you wish, purchase a snack or warm drink at the on-site restaurant (own expense) before the return cogwheel train ride down to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach awaits. Relax on the 1-hour drive back to Zurich, arriving at the bus terminal in the evening.

Strongly recommended!! Great experience to the top of the mountain where all the snow caps were! It looks beautful and cold -15 degree.
Our tour guide, Kid, was extremely informative and helpful. he always offered to help us taking photos as well as telling us where is the best spot for photos.
However, I got mountain sickness towards the end of the tour. the tour guide was experience enough to know i was unwell before telling him. He taught me a few ways to get myself feels better.
Also there were lots of different tour groups and people so it was quite packed.

Excellent experience being on the top of Europe. The guide was awesome and carefully and skilfully guided the group giving us interesting nuggets of information along the way.
Walking through the heart of a glacier in the Ice palace was an additional treat in addition to scenic views at Jungfraujoch.

The tour was amazing!l and guide was really good too. However, I felt was if we were rushed once at the top of Europe. I wish we could have left 1 hour earlier and had 1 more hour at the top. Overall, trip was very good.
