Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe Day Trip from Zurich

Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

Climb up, up, up, savoring views of the towering mountains around you, until you reach Jungfraujoch.

The tour guide was fabulous. He was very accommodating to everyone in the tour and made sure we all understand every part of the tour. Our tour was blessed with a beautiful day at Jungfraujoch and we had breathtaking views of the mountain. Our initial stop at Interlaken was nice but quick - the true gem was going up the mountain and being able to view all the beauty that was around us. MUCH DO LIST!!!!

Worth every penny!! Plenty of time to see everything about Jungfraujoch. The tour guide KID was entertaining and well-informed about the place of visit. He made the tour hassle-free and well-paced, despite having to catch and change a few trains. Truly enjoyed this tour!!

What an interesting day, traveling by bus, then by cog railroad. Saw gorgeous territory and the tunnels in the mountains were amazing. This is a Must do for anyone's travel plans. At first we were uncertain about our tour guide, Kei, but he turned out to be lots of fun and extremely informative. He reminded some of a little Oriental, Swiss leprechaun. He knew exactly what he was doing. On the double decker bus, he would walk around at times, and could tell us on the count of 3 were the next photo opportunity would be. Everyone pointed their cameras and there it was. He definitely knew the route.One person in our group had difficulty with the high altitude and he made certain she had a place to go and sit while the others continued their tour. If you do have heart or lung issues, you may not want to do this trip or should get high altitude meds. The top of the mountain was quite a wonder of the world,
