What You Can Expect

Swiss Alps Day Trip from Zurich: Jungfraujoch and Bernese Oberland

Take the cogwheel train to Jungfraujoch

Greet your guide in a central Zurich location and climb aboard a comfortable coach destined for Grindelwald. Receive a fascinating introduction to the Bernese Oberland region as you travel through the beautiful countryside and then refresh with a hot beverage (own expense) during a brief interlude in Interlaken.

Travel onward to Grindelwald to board the cogwheel train headed to one of Europe’s highest points. Marvel at dramatic mountain scenery during the 1.5-hour ride up the UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch mountain pass, and scour the horizon for the jagged peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains.

On arrival at the 11,332-foot (3,454-meter) summit, gaze at mind blowing views of the Alpine wonderland below, and then ascend to the Sphinx Observatory for even more magnificent panoramas. Try to spot the craggy peak of the Aletsch Glacier, Europe’s longest glacier, and then explore the frozen tunnels of the Ice Palace during an enchanting guided tour.

Opt to enjoy a fulfilling meal at one of the many rustic restaurants at the summit (own expense) and then re-board the train for the journey to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach awaits. Relax during the journey back to Zurich, where the tour concludes.

Wow this is such an amazing tour, it truly takes you to the top of Europe. Be careful though if you are looking for much of a guide, as there is little of that.

Were fortunate to have a clear weather day. Had beautiful views on the way up and most of the way down. When we were all tired ran into rain getting back to Zurich. Guide was informative and knowledgeable during the tour. Was the highlight of our Vacation. If you have the time put it in your plans.

What a great tour! The reviews were right... good thing since it was on the expensive side for me. This is one of the best attractions. We went mid February. We were very lucky to have sunny weather for the day. A foggy day would be a waste. The ride starts from the bus station in Zurich and heads to Interlaken via Lucerne. Peter was an excellent guide. He is a Swiss local, so he imparted his knowledge of the culture and sights.The best part was the scenic train up to Jungfrau and back down. The windows on the train lower for excellent picture taking. The chocolate shop at the top is surprisingly reasonably priced. This journey is a must for a trip to the Alps.

This tour was amazing and super well organized - my tour guide Marcel was fantastic and very motivated. I was blessed with outstanding weather, however, have heard that makes all the difference in the world. This tour is definitely worth the money and get to see a lot of Switzerland.
