Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe Day Trip from Zurich
US$260.48
Overview
Visiting Jungfraujoch, one of Europe’s highest train stations, from Zurich takes some complicated forward-planning and transport connections. This hassle-free guided tour takes care of the organization for you, giving you more time to focus on the scenery. Travel by comfortable coach through the scenic Bernese Oberland to Lauterbrunnen, and then ride the cogwheel train to Jungfraujoch’s Sphinx Observatory for the 360-degree glacier and mountain views—all in one seamless day.
What to Expect
Board a coach in central Zurich and journey south through Switzerland's scenic Bernese Oberland to Lauterbrunnen.

On arrival, you'll ride the cogwheel train to Jungfraujoch, one of Europe’s highest-altitude train stations, set 11,333 feet (3,454 meters) above sea level in a UNESCO-listed wilderness, and dubbed the ‘Top of Europe.’

Gaze at the snowy mountains as the train navigates the Kleine Scheidegg pass, and disembark at Jungfraujoch to enjoy the different activities and viewpoints.

Head for the Alpine Sensation, a visual-experience moving walkway that transports you past presentations showcasing the Jungfrau Railway’s history, and experience the Ice Palace glacier walk to see its glittering ice sculptures. Then, visit the Sphinx Observatory for stunning panoramas over the Aletsch Glacier, and the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau.

If you wish, refuel at the restaurant (own expense) before riding the train back to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach awaits. Your tour finishes at the original starting point.

Jungfraujoch; Top of Europe Day Trip from Zurich.

Give it a 4 because it's hard to detract from the beauty of the Swiss landscapes. Would have given it a 5 if we'd had a different guide. Saw a previous review about tour guide, Kid. Second the description. Definitely do the tour -- just...More

Truly worth it

I think I got to see pretty much all of Switzerland on my trip. I had taken a train from Geneva to Zurich, then did this day trip. We took a bus ride from Zurich with awesome views, then the train rides were also amazing....More

Awesome visit to the top with Kid

Took this tour to see the Alps while visiting Zurich. Our guide, Kid, was quite the character. He has a great sense of humor but kept the group moving. What some people viewed as commanding at first soon became very clear that Kid wanted everyone...More

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful full day tour of Jungfroujoch. Our tour guide Raymond was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable of Switzerland. Our bus driver Mark was also great, he very safely drove the bus and I felt at ease when going around...More

We went just recently and it rained the entire time so there was zero visibility. It's a very long way to go only to be completely disappointed. My recommendation would be to go to Zurich and then book this a day or two... More

Kim, Google "Kleine Scheidegg" to get a sense of the Eiger base station where you could get off before the final cog railway leg up to the Jungfraujoch. If looking UP at the Eiger from there scares you, think of what looking... More

They will do pick up and drop off in Lucerne. I don't know about extra large luggage space but I wouldn't advise bringing such baggage with you.
