$249.47 USD

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.

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!!

The tour was well organized and the views from the Top of Europe station were spectacular. It's fast-paced but not rushed. We had plenty of time taking pictures at destination. Train rides were interesting. The tour can be improved by not making stops in Lucerne to pick up additional passengers. It was a 30-45 minute detour.

The tour was rated excellent and our expectations were met. Though it was a long day with a start in Zurich, we were not disappointed in the overall experience and would recommend it highly.

A fantastic experience and would recommend it as a must do, however some issues with the travel to the mountain, communication could have been better with the travel company on the bus.

Great day out. Fantastic scenery, and well worth the expense to tick off the bucket list!

While you could probably make this journey to Jungfraujoch on your own, it is nice to have a package that gets you up there and provides easy access. The trip is certainly worth it for the views alone along the way, much less for the access to the interesting activities at the top of the mountain, such as an ice cave and ziplining across snow fields.
