What You Can Expect

Swiss Alps Day Trip from Zurich: Jungfraujoch and Bernese Oberland

Take the cogwheel train to Jungfraujoch

Greet your guide in a central Zurich location and climb aboard a comfortable coach destined for Grindelwald. Receive a fascinating introduction to the Bernese Oberland region as you travel through the beautiful countryside and then refresh with a hot beverage (own expense) during a brief interlude in Interlaken.

Travel onward to Grindelwald to board the cogwheel train headed to one of Europe’s highest points. Marvel at dramatic mountain scenery during the 1.5-hour ride up the UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch mountain pass, and scour the horizon for the jagged peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains.

On arrival at the 11,332-foot (3,454-meter) summit, gaze at mind blowing views of the Alpine wonderland below, and then ascend to the Sphinx Observatory for even more magnificent panoramas. Try to spot the craggy peak of the Aletsch Glacier, Europe’s longest glacier, and then explore the frozen tunnels of the Ice Palace during an enchanting guided tour.

Opt to enjoy a fulfilling meal at one of the many rustic restaurants at the summit (own expense) and then re-board the train for the journey to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach awaits. Relax during the journey back to Zurich, where the tour concludes.

I would highly recommend this trip. It is a long day I would not recommend bringing kids who cannot sit still for long periods.

We started the day with a bus ride to Interlacken. I did this tour on Sunday, so a pro was less traffic, con was the shops were mostly closed. I actually did not care about the shops I was not interested in shopping. Just enough time to walk around downtown Interlacken and see the sites.

We then began the bus and train trip through the Bernese Oberland portion of the Alps. It is a shifting of buses and trains. Going to the top was spectacular and you have plenty of opportunities for photos. For me, when we got on the train, sitting to the right, or facing east as you look out the window, afforded the best scenery views out of the train the other side of the train not so much

A few tips:
1. Wear shoes that can get through bits of snow and afford some traction for the ice caves I did this in February 2017
2. Bring sunglasses. On top of the mountain the sun shines and with the snow it is very bright.
3. Carry a backpack with water. You can buy water at certain spots, but hit the Coop store on your way to the bus station in the morning. Because of the altitude, you will want to drink lots of water to keep you from feeling it too much. I ended up buying a large bottle in Interlacken when we stopped there.

Ferdinand was our tour guide he was fabulous. Please do not forget to tip your tour leaders! Can you imagine doing that job? Is it not easy!! He was lovely and took pictures for me in several spots.

I would highly recommend this trip.
