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.

Kid was awesome, very informative, funny and took control of a fairly large group but you didn't feel just one of the crowd, he offered personal attention to everyone. This was the most expensive of the 8 tours I booked but worth every penny and Kid made it so. I highly recommend this tour, the scenery was spectacular and although the tour was 12 hours we enjoyed every minute.

This is the secound time on this tour and that is because it is an absolutely beautiful part of Switzerland. Also the tour guide named Kid was a big influence in my decision to take this trip again with Viator. Kid goes that extra mile to ensure everyone has a great time and is well informed about the areas visited. Will be back.

Strange experience - very busy with lots of tourists. But the tour was fun, we had a great time seeing the sites of Switzerland and being at the highest train station in Europe!

If you love mountains and valleys this is the tour. Breathtaking views of nature, keep warm because the winds can be chilling. If you're elderly just take note there's a lot of walking and sometimes on slippery grounds. A bit rushed but the whole experience on being on top of Europe is worth it.
