What You Can Expect

Jungfraujoch Top of Europe Day Trip from Lucerne

Admire the incredible views over the Aletsch Glacier on your trip to Jungfraujoch

Start your day trip near the main train station in central Lucerne, where you’ll meet your guide aboard the coach for the drive to Lauterbrunnen. The scenic journey winds below the impressive mountain peaks of the Bernese Oberland en route to your destination in the UNESCO-listed wilderness of Switzerland’s Bernese Alps.


On arrival at Lauterbrunnen, your guide accompanies you on a 50-minute cogwheel train ride to Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest-altitude railway station sitting 11,333 feet above sea level. Along the way, travel through the breathtaking mountain pass of Kleine Scheidegg, situated beneath the famous Eiger North Face. 


Disembark at the Top of Europe and head to the Alpine Sensation — a round-tour subway opened to mark the centenary of the Jungfrau Railway. This latest attraction links the Ice Palace and Sphinx Observatory, where you can soak up panoramic views over Aletsch Glacier, Europe's longest glacier. On a clear day, look as far as the snow-capped peaks of France and Italy. 


If you wish, purchase a snack or a warm drink at the on-site restaurant (own expense) before your return down the mountainside to the Alpine town of Grindelwald. Then hop aboard your coach for the return drive to central Lucerne where your tour concludes in the evening.

This tour was a great way to see a snapshot of Lauterbrunnen and Jungfraujoch. Unfortunately, we didn't have great weather as it rained/snowed the whole time limiting visibility of the sights. The weather improved in the following days. We booked this tour in advance to fit in with our itinerary and to avoid it selling out. If I were to do it again, I think that I would wait and book closer to the date to check the weather forecast. Nonetheless, it was a great day out.

Tour guide Raymond is excellent! He did a very good explanation of Lucerne city during the journey there, explaining the beautiful sights. And constantly checked in with everyone to see whether we're ok. Tour is very comprehensive, and transport is well organized. Highly recommend!
