From
$251.24 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.

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.

trip was well organised, with Tour Guide Mr. Kid. Kid did an excellent job , he is well aware of the best location for clicking pictures and gave a good insight of the trip. Unfortunately Couldn't went to TOP OF EUROPE as tunnel was blocked due to Glacier. But the Hemet Meirs returned us the amount for it. Great Experience :)

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!!

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.

, Jul 2018

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.

, May 2018

An excellent experience!

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