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.

Absolutely wonderful trip. Kid was an amazing tour guide who made us laugh and was also very attentive to the needs of everyone on the tour. The trip up to and down from Jungfrau were spectacular in their own right, but the views from the observation deck were breathtaking. We would absolutely do this trip again in a heartbeat.

What a fabulous day out. Be prepared for a bit of travel from Zurich. However our guide Kid was amazing and the time seemed to fly. Kid made sure we had as many opportunities for photos as possible. His friendliness and enthusiasm for the group added to a most amazing experience. Jungfraujoch was fantastic, as was the view both up and down the mountains. We even saw an avalanche. Great Tour!
