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.

It was an amazing trip guide, ride, location everything was really good. organized and professional guide was so knowledgeable and friendly and it’s a must do trip breathtaking views are just amazing, I could’ve never imagine that I can go on the mountain but they made it possible it was really smooth ride with very less physical activities and it’s wasnt really cold at all so I had a great time.

The tour guide forgot his name was hilarious. At first he seemed like this quiet, grouchy tour guide, and then as the tour went on his personality started to show and I was laughing the whole time.
Overall this tour was worth my money and scenery was amazing.
I recommend taking caffeine with you if you get sleepy on a bus as I always do so you don't want to fall asleep and miss all the amazing views!
The stop off points were amazing and not too short, nor too long. The main restaurant in Jungfrau is very, very expensive and not good so make sure you eat at the cafeteria.

My tour guide name is called Kid. He was awesome and hilarious! I came on this tour as a solo female and Kid made me feel safe and also had me sit with other solo females which I made friends with. The tour is a must I highly recommend especially if you have Kid as your tour guide no one does it better then him! The drive is long yes but it's all worth it once you are on top of Europe with the views.

Raymond, the tour guide and Luis, the driver, both of them were extremely professional, courteous and caring. I was travelling with a disabled guest and they went above and beyond what was expected to ensure we got the same experience as other guests. Raymond even stepped up in places where other guides would have liked to rest with the guests. I really want to thank Hans Meier for a great experience. I think the competitor also offers the same tour and just based on the customer service of the tour guides and drivers, I would recommend Hans Meier more than the competitor, since I took some tours with both companies.
Although most of the trip is accessible, the first cogwheel train and some of the doors at the peak are not friendly towards folks on wheels. The Ice palace needs shoes with grooves as it is somewhat slippery. All the other attractions up top were great. I would definitely recommend having some good snacks going up, as you can expect the prices to be a bit on the higher side. And walking around gives a good workout.
This was one of the longest and most outstanding tours I had from Zurich. Definitely worth it and recommend it to anyone!

Really enjoyed the trip. It was very scenic along the way to Jungfarujoch, and the view on the mountain itself was just amazing. The journey from Zurich to Jungfrau was a bit long, but it was worth it. Also impressed with Mr Kid, our travel guide.

Amazing View on the trip. Barbra, our guide was also very friendly . Best way to take this trip would be from Interlanken though. Its a bit far from Zurich. But its all worth it once you take the train from Interlaken.

The tour is well planned and carried out, tour guide 'Kid' did a great job in guiding a group of 30 to 40 people from different countries.
Helped every one of us taking pictures and showed all the best picture taking spots. On time departure from Zurich, the bus to the train station is very clean and well maintained, they even have train car reserved for the tour group. The landscape is beautiful, be sure to bring warm clothing because on the top it's about 32 F in July, highly recommended, worth every penny.

We were led by Kid - a stern but responsible and compassionate tour guide. We thought he was really mean at first because he would reprimand those who didn't follow instructions but after a while, we realized that he was doing a very good job! The pace of the tour was just right, with enough time to see the sights in Jungfrau but not too long such that you would suffer mountain sickness. Kid knew all the good photo spots and would help all of us take photos. There were a few uncourteous travellers in the group but he handled the situation very professionally. Amazing experience! Would definitely recommend!!
