Sure to be a highlight of your Switzerland vacation, this day trip from Zurich takes you into the Swiss Alps. Discover Jungfraujoch, one of the highest points in Europe, travel by coach with a multilingual guide through the Bernese Oberland region, and enjoy a stop in the famous town of Interlaken along the way. Board a cogwheel train in Grindelwald for a ride to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jungfraujoch mountain pass, where an Alpine wonderland of spectacular mountains and glaciers awaits.
  • A guided day trip removes the hassle of planning your visit to Jungfraujoch
  • Admire stunning views of Alpine landscape throughout your tour
  • Entrance to Sphinx Observatory and Ice Palace included as summit activities
  • Round-trip transportation from Zurich in coach and cogwheel train included
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Zurich, and head for the charming ski resort of Grindelwald aboard a comfortable coach. Learn about the Bernese Oberland region as you pass through the Swiss countryside. Stop in Interlaken long enough for a quick photo and a hot drink (own expense).
Upon arrival in Grindelwald, board a classic cogwheel train for a ride up the UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch mountain, aptly nicknamed the “Top of Europe” for its incredible summit at 11,330 feet (3,450 meters).
Disembark at the summit for stunning views of the Alpine landscape from the Sphinx Observatory and a guided tour through the frozen tunnels of the Ice Palace.
Enjoy free time to dine or explore before re-boarding the train and meeting your coach for the return journey to Zurich.

Out of Zurich, you take a bus. Then you take two different trains to reach the top of the mountain. They lead you pretty well though.

I agree that it's a long trip for a 5 year old, but if they travel well, the destination is certainly worth it. It was a great excursion!
