Overview

Travel to Jungfraujoch — Europe's highest railway station at a dizzying height of 11,333 feet (3,454 meters) — on this 9.5-hour day trip from Lucerne. A scenic coach drive via the Bernese Oberland delivers you to Lauterbrunnen for a cogwheel train ride. You’ll wind through the Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass below the foot of the Eiger North Face. At the Top of Europe, explore the glaciated Ice Palace and enjoy World Heritage–listed views of the soaring Swiss Alps and Aletsch Glacier from the Sphinx Observatory.
  • Full-day trip to Jungfraujoch from Lucerne
  • Enjoy a scenic drive through the magnificent Swiss Alps with your guide
  • Take the cogwheel railway via Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe
  • Discover the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jungfraujoch, home to Europe's highest railway station
  • Explore the Ice Palace and Sphinx Observation Terrace
  • Take in spectacular panoramic mountain views from your mountain vantage point
  • Tour includes round-trip travel by air-conditioned coach
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.

I have only one thing to say, thank you Kid. Only being in the alps surpassed your being your tour guide. I will never forget the beauty of this experience.

Amazing trip to the top of the world, including a 4 mile tunnel through solid rock, station inside the mountain, Ice sculptures. Try to check weather before going and choose a sunny day. Expensive, but worth it!

We really enjoyed the cog train up the mountain. Everything at the top was great. The Ice Palace was cool to go through. There were great photo opportunities outside and in the snow.

The tour itself and the scenery you see is just incredible.

We had Kid as our guide and he was exceptional at making sure he got pictures for everyone and knew the best spots/times to get them.

This is an expensive trip, just like everything else in switzerland, but it is well worth it. Unless you live in the alps, you just can't see this.

My only gripe is that for how expense the tour is, you are not even provided a bottle of water. Even though it is stressed once onboard how important it is to have water. the guide was selling water for 2 francs a bottle, cash only but it just seems silly a bottle of water isn't provided at the seat. We've been on numerous trips like this through viator and a bottle of water is the bare minimum provided. Not a huge deal, we had water with us, but it just feels like nickel and diming you considering how expensive the tour is. Other than that though, fantastic tour, Kid did a great job of keeping a large group together and on time and making sure we all had great pictures to remember!

It was about 3 hours from Lucerne. One thing to be wary of is the weather if you book the tour ahead of time. You may want to wait until the last minute to book, as there isn't much to see when there are clouds engulfing the top. While the cost of the tour is pricey, it is worth having someone who knows the train schedules, has a reserved car for you on the train especially important in busier months and can lead you around. Our tour guide didn't provide much in the way of 'touring' during the ride back and forth nor while at the top. She was friendly and educated on the things asked, just not proactive in providing information. Bus ride was very bumpy and side to side - I don't know if that was due to the drivers driving capabilities or the intense switchbacks up the mountain!!!! Even in early May, it is BUSY!!!! Having a guide to keep us straight was such a relief. Grab yourself some Swiss Alps whisky to enjoy at home. One of the staff recommended a whisky liqueur as well. And apparently this is the mountain where Bollywood movies film if there are any mountain or snow scenes!!!

Our tour guide, Boy, was wonderful. There are a lot of connections and you definitely need someone to guide you. The scenery and information we received made the trip even more than we expected. My husband got ill from the thin air, and our guide made sure he was well taken care of.
