What You Can Expect

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.

Fantastic trip....we had a partly sunny day and it was beautiful. Amazing views of the Swiss towns on the side of the mountains as we took the train up the mountain.

if anyone goes to Zurich and doesn't take this tour they are missing out on a trip of a lifetime. Tour guide Peter Steinman was exceptional and Armando, our driver, was great.
Only comment is that you should say that the traveler should check in at the local tour office. We wandered for a bit until we saw a small Viator sign on the window.

Excellent tour! Highly Recommended for everyone who wishes to travel to Jungfraujoch. The tour guide kid was very knowledgable and best tour guide you can expect. The location also is absolutely breathtaking. While on way to Jungraujoch, your bus will have a stopover at Interlaken, which is simply heaven on Earth.

Tour was absolutely fantastic. We were absolutely blessed with the weather, visibility was incredible. One of the highlights of this tour was our guide, Kid. The way he organised photos on the trains and in in the snow was fantastic. Come to Zurich, make this tour a must.
