What To Expect

Depart from a centrally located pickup point in Interlaken and climb aboard a comfortable, climate-controlled coach destined for Grindelwald. Relax as you admire beautiful panoramas of Swiss countryside and listen to illuminating commentary from your guide. 

On arrival in Grindelwald, board the new state-of-the-art gondola Eiger Express for a ride to the Eiger Station. Feel your excitement heighten as you ascend to Jungfraujoch in a cogwheel train; marvel at the frozen witchery of the Eiger, Jungfrau, and Mönch peaks along the way and then disembark at Europe’s highest railway station. 

Gasp as you take in sweeping vistas of the icy landscape. From the Sphinx Observation Terrace, scour the horizon for the Aletsch Glacier, the longest glacier in Europe, and see if you can spot neighboring countries like France and Germany. 

Heighten your exhilaration on a guided wander through the Ice Palace, a magical cave located within a glacier, and then return to the cogwheel train for the scenic descent to Grindelwald. Travel to your awaiting coach in Lauterbrunnen and reflect on your incredible day during the journey back to Interlaken.

I had previously checked in to doing this on our own, but found it was much easier - and less expensive - to do it as a tour.

Vladimir was an amazing guide
Tony_N, Aug 2022
If you book this experience, hopefully you get Vladimir! He speaks 7 languages and is extremely knowledgeable about the area. I spoke to him extensively about all kinds of things to do in the area/Switzerland in general.
Amazing trip
SYED_H, Jul 2022

Unforgettable Jungfraujoch
Sebastian_M, Jul 2022
Excellent tour,Mr Konrad is a great tour guide,explains everything well. Well,i hope we get more free time up there,cause there's so many things to do, and probably we could stay at Lauterbrunen a little bit longer too
Great but certain things closed
Coulton_M, Jun 2022
It was a great experience but upon arriving we learned several of the activities were closed due to an impending storm, so when booking be cautious of the weather
Awesome & Fun Jungfraujoch
Gaurav_A, May 2022
The epxerience going up to Jungraujoch is surreal and amazing itself. There are a lot of activities on top but make sure to complete them early as they close by 3;30pm. The plateu is a great place for some amazing pictures and the view of the glacier. It will be cold and windy , so please carry a jacket.

Jungraujoch in mediocre weather conditions
Merrick_B, Apr 2022
The ice palace and the sphinx were truly incredible. We went on a cloudy/rainy day and knew that views could be harmed as a result. Even though when we first got there it was nearly impossible to see out, we were patient and walked through the rest of the tour. We loved the ice palace. Later we went back to the Sphinx and it cleared up. So just be patient. If it’s supposed to be really bad weather, storms, strong rain, I’d recommend canceling in advance. If there’s a chance for good weather, it’ll still be worthwhile.
My wife and I truly...
Michael_S, Mar 2022
My wife and I truly enjoyed our trip to Jubgfraujoch! Eduardo, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and personable, and conducted the tour in both English and Spanish. His assistant Sue was extremely helpful. The tour involves a short bus ride to Grindelwald, then a breathtaking cable car ride with incredible views of the Alps, then a ride in a funicular up a tunnel in the mountain to Jungfraujoch. Upon arriving at Jungfraujoch, we had a delicious meal in the restaurant, then took the self guided tour to the observation deck, though the ice caverns, and out onto the snowy mountain. The pictures we took of the Alps from Jungfraujoch are some of our favorite from our Switzerland trip. I highly recommend this tour!

Lynn_P, Aug 2021
Was a very good tour but would have liked more then 2 hours at Jungfrau. I felt rushed to see everything and to have lunch. The ice palace was wonderful so don’t miss it. Weather was perfect!
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Dear Lynn, Thank you very much for your joining our tour to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe from Interlaken! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit of Europe's highest train station with perfect weather conditions. We totally understand that you would have liked to spend more time on the summit. Depending on train connections, the stay is about 2-2.5 hours. While it is sufficient for the main sights and to have lunch, there is so much to discover that it is impossible to see it all in one visit. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Interlaken and hope to welcome you again during your next trip to Switzerland! Best regards, Amanda from Best of Switzerland Tours
The perfect day
TrailBlazer594596, Aug 2019
Our trip to the Jungfraujoch was fantastic. We had the perfect weather. The views are breathtaking. Our guide was knowledgeable and the tour was explained in Spanish, English and German. Some remarks I would make are the following: The meeting point in Interlaken was not very clear, the bathroom situation in Interlaken and on top was rather nasty even though on our day the crowed was not at its maximum. We understand that everything has to be brought up to the Jungfraujoch but for the price we paid we expected a bit more cleanliness. As a Swiss citizen, I wish we can do better.
Gorgeous vistas!
Jeff_A, Oct 2019
Rode a tour bus from Interlaken to the first of two trains up to the Jungfrau viewing platform. The ride up provided beautiful views in themselves. Gratefully, it was a sunny day and beautiful views were available of both the Jungfrau and Munch peaks. They were also interesting exhibits inside the glacier at the platform. A day well spent!
Top of Europe!!

My 25 year old daughter and I took this tour earlier this month while staying in Interlaken, and it is well worth it! I had previously checked in to doing this on our own, but found it was much easier - and less expensive - to do it as a tour. Cold at the very top, but it's about 13,000 ft altitude, with snow and glacier. Magnificent views! The ice palace was our favorite, so beautiful and impressive. Our guide made it easy to make it to all the spots and see everything. The only downside was that we only had an hour for lunch and shopping; we could've used and extra half hour or so, but other than that we had a fabulous time. Highly recommend!!

Great Tour!
Samantha_K, Jul 2019
This was an excellent and well organized tour to Jungfraujoch. Our tour guide, Minu, was knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. The time allotted for this tour is sufficient. Jungfraujoch was exciting to visit, though very crowded (not to any fault of our tour). We loved being able to stop in various towns (Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen). Highly recommend Best of Switzerland for all tours!

Tour guides were great, well organised. Scenery on the way up was spectacular. Our experience at the Sphinx exceeded all expectations and while the cloud cover prevented us from seeing anything the snow fall made it, standing on the plateau in the wind and sleet was amazing.

James W, Sep 2018
An amazing day and an amazing trip! We celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary on the top of Europe! The beautiful green valleys approaching the Alps and the snow white Alpine peaks were majestic. Our tour guide something like Anti but I forget her name was constantly sharing information in three languages, kept us all together, and pointed out upcoming sites so we could get our cameras ready. She was a wonderful tour guide. The trip itself was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe. We loved Switzerland, the Alps, the Sunny B and B that we stayed at in Interlaken, the food and drinks, and the hosts at the B and B. Overall, a wonderful three days and we will definitely return someday.
Our guide was excellent and my family...
