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.

This tour is awesome! It's really worth it. The tour guide, Kid, is amazing and very helpful for taking good pictures. You can enjoy the trip from the beginning and do not have to worry about anything because all are arranged nicely. Jungfraujoch also amazing and I was so thankful that the weather was really nice!

Our tour guide was Raymond who was energetic and did an excellent job taking our cameras and providing us tourist photos. We were fortunate to have a sunny day and the villages and landscapes we rode past were as amazing as the top of Jungfraujoch itself. Highly recommend this tour as there is a lot of scenery to take in from start to finish.

Cannot recommend this tour enough. It was snowing at the top of Jungfraujoch when we went, along with being cloudly. We really didn't get to see too much from Jungfraujoch. However, the journey traveling to Jungfraujoch was amazing. The Swiss countryside has the most spectacular views I've ever seen. Even if the weather is bad, you will still have a great time - no doubt.

Our tour guide Peter was great. He gave us enough information without being annoying. The Lindt chocolate shop at Jungfraujoch is very overrated and expensive. Their chocolate is not very good. I recommend going to Confiserie Sprungli in Zurich instead.
