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.

The departure point was easy to find and the departure was on time. The tour guide was very friendly as he explained the things very detailed and being very helpful to take pictures for the participants of the tour.

Excellent guide (thanks Raymond!), fantastic day. Nature put it on for us with a wonderfully clear day all the way to the top, and with a great sunset behind the alps topping the day off. Inside and out at the top were memorable, especially the Spinx and Ice Palace. 3 hours at the top perhaps?

Amazing tour and unforgettable moment


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

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.
