What You Can Expect

Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe Day Trip from Zurich

Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

Start your 11.5-hour day trip from the bus terminal in central Zurich and depart by coach for the scenic 2-hour journey south. Travel among the towering peaks of Switzerland's Bernese Oberland to Lauterbrunnen, where a cogwheel train carries you up to Europe’s highest-altitude train station, situated in a UNESCO-listed Alpine wilderness.

The 50-minute train ride winds through the Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass in the Burnese Alps. Upon arrival at Jungfraujoch, situated at an elevation of 11,333 feet, 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. 

Head to the Ice Palace for a glacier walk and stop at the Sphinx Observatory for sweeping views of Europe's longest glacier: Aletsch Glacier. From viewing platforms, enjoy a 360-degree panorama of this winter wonderland draped in a breathtaking display of ice and snow. On a clear day, look beyond to the mountain peaks of neighboring Italy and France. 

If you wish, purchase a snack or warm drink at the on-site restaurant (own expense) before the return cogwheel train ride down to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach awaits. Relax on the 1-hour drive back to Zurich, arriving at the bus terminal in the evening.

Our tour guide, Raymond, was very good. He was enthusiastic and took the time to tell us about the landmarks and towns as we passed them. He helped us take pictures and gave us many good recommendations. The Top of Europe was very neat. The view above the clouds was incredible. We would highly recommend this trip!

Easy to sign up online with telephone assist as necessary. Tomas, our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable about the environs along the way. He provided excellent coverage and direction of the group during the transfers from coach to trains. Bus comfort was excellent as were the driving skills of the bus driver. The train ride was wonderful especially with a full sun day. The time at the top of the Jungfrau was sufficient to enjoy all the recommended activities. Check the weather forecast - without partial or full sun you will miss amazing views from the Top of Europe which are sublime.
