Jungfrau Glacier Tours

33 Reviews
The Jungfrau, a sky-high saddle in the Swiss Alps and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers jaw-dropping views of the Bernese Oberland’s massive glaciers and snowy peaks. Travel by narrow cog railway to Jungfraujoch and stand on “the Top of Europe” as you gaze out at the Aletsch Glacier, the longest glacier in Europe, and far, far beyond.
 
The Basics
Visiting Switzerland’s Jungfrau region is a true once-in-a-lifetime experience. The journey up the steep Alpine slopes—via a narrow cog railway—is simply exhilarating. Buy a ticket in advance and board the train for a journey that leads you by the foot of the notorious Eiger North Wall and through a mountain tunnel before arriving at the 11,330-foot (3,454-meter) Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest railway station and the setting for the Sphinx Observatory, an international weather research facility. Guided day trips from Zurich, Lucerne, Interlaken, and Bern include tickets for the cog train and, in some cases, stops at other scenic spots in Bernese Oberland. Jungfrau Travel Pass holders can ride the cog railway for free.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Jungfrau is covered with ice and snow nearly year-round, even in midsummer. Wear a windproof jacket and bring gloves, a hat, and a scarf.
  • Stay hydrated to avoid altitude sickness.
  • Book train tickets in advance as they frequently sell out.
  • The cog railway and the Jungfraujoch are accessible to wheelchair users.
How to Get There
The only way to get up to Jungfraujoch is via the cog mountain train. Board the train from Interlaken Ost, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald, Wilderswil, Wengen, or Kleine Scheidegg. The journey from Interlaken to Jungfrau takes about two hours.
 
When to Get There
Jungfraujoch is open year-round. July and August are the busiest months. Clouds tend to come in later in the day, so arrive early for the best views.
 
What to See at the Summit
For the best view from Jungfraujoch, head to the terrace in the Sphinx Observatory. From here you can see the Great Aletsch Glacier, which at 14 miles (23 kilometers) is the largest glacier in the Alps and the longest in all of Europe. Also on view are a crowd of majestic Alpine peaks and—on a clear day—the borderlands of Germany and France. You can also explore the Ice Palace, where intricately carved ice sculptures are on display, and visit the café and souvenir shop.
