Know More about this tour

Head to the Lucerne Tourist Information Office in the morning to board your luxury coach. Your multilingual guide — who speaks English, Spanish and German — will accompany you throughout your entire full-day journey. Sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic drive through Swiss countryside and the Bernese Oberland, a fairy-tale wonderland of white jagged Bernese Alps. The scenery is truly captivating, and it only gets better from here!

After a 1-hour drive, stop for a break in the famous town of Interlaken, situated between two lakes to form the main gateway to the region's mountains and lakes. Then, head to the nearby village of Grindelwald to board your cogwheel train for an incredible 1.5-hour ride to Jungfraujoch. Travel through the high mountain pass of Kleine Scheidegg between the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks.

When you arrive at Jungfraujoch at an elevation of 11,332 feet (3,454 meters), you’ve reached one of Europe's highest railway stations! Jungfraujoch immerses you in a breathtaking Alpine wonderland.

Take the underground tunnel to the Top of Europe building and stand on the lookout point to gaze down on the snowy peaks of Aletsch Glacier. Ride the elevator to the Sphinx Observatory's terrace for more amazing panoramas, and then enter the Ice Palace to walk through the heart of a glacier; it's an unforgettable experience!

Enjoy a meal or some refreshments at one of the several restaurants at the Top of Europe (own expense). Savor your last views before boarding the train and heading back down to mountains, passing the ski resort of Wengen. Disembark in Lauterbrunnen, reboard your coach and relax on the drive back to Lucerne.

  • Tour great, but one time is enough, expensive, tour guide very self serving and conceited.

  • Being up the top of Jungfrau was breathtaking. We started the tour from Lucerne, which means you join the tour leaving from Zurich. It was a large group, about 60 people but the guides Peter and David did a great job managing everyone. This really is just a trip to Jungfrau. The stop in Interlaken was really just a shopping stop, but to be honest there really weren't that many good shops, unless you were looking for expensive watches. It would of be nice to have a bit more history or information about Switzerland etc. I think if you were going to do this trip, don't go later than early November because with the sun setting so early, the drive back will be pitch black. All in all an enjoyable day. Not sure if it would be possible to do it cheaper by yourself though...

  • My grown daughter and I had a wonderful experience. If time is limited this is definitely the way to go.

  • We had a spectacular day at Jungfraujoch! Clear, blue skies. A bit crowded but it was a Sunday. Besides the Alps we appreciated the travel through the countryside.

  • Would have been a lovely trip if not for the rainy day !!... preferable to take this trip well before september

  • Great trip with wonderful guide. Amazing views! It is about a 9-10 hour day, so be prepared, but well worth it!

  • Our tour guide and bus driver were excellent. The tour guide was very enthusiastic about the whole tour, mountains, lakes, etc. Minu Faber was the tour guide. Thanks very much to all.

  • Traveled 6-23-17... We were lucky to have a beautiful day on the mountain. It is a 10 hour trip from Lucerne roundtrip but its worth the ride if the weather is good. The transfers from bus to two train rides was well timed. You're given plenty of time to enjoy exploring the mountain top. Our guides were knowledgeable and very forthcoming with information. On the bus you'll find yourself trying to absorb the landscape while your guide shares details about the terrain and the Swiss culture. The only worry I would have if I were to book again is the weather. Several of our party went to the mountain the following day and couldn't see much at all due to rain and clouds. So if its sunny... expect large crowds. That's when the locals visit the mountain as well.

  • I had so looked forward to this experience...but it was really a disappointment. Our Tour Guide was lovely and our bus was prompt...no problems there. Once we arrived at the cogwheel train...the wheels really dropped off. Several other bus loads where there and the guides had us crossing back and forth....really disorganized. Several of us....all seniors ended up sitting on jump seats near the exit doors...not so bad except our windows are covered over with mesh....couldn't see a thing. We were very fortune to have good weather so when we finally did make it to the top...the view was spectacular. We walked through all the areas to be seen at the top...but not too interesting. The chocolate store was packed with people....the ice palace was overrated and very few places to sit. On our way home the children on our tour were loud. I have grandchildren and there is nothing more wonderful than a child's laughter but this was hours of yelling and screaming. I don't know what Viator's policy is...but it was most unpleasant for a lot of other people who had to listen to the yelling for hours. We were thrilled to get off the bus.
    We have booked Viator many times before and our experience has always been positive..but this time, no!! I felt that we had way over spent for a day that was not enjoyable. We were so glad to be home.

  • Excellent. This tour was definitely one of the hi-lights of my trip to Switzerland. On the day we departed from Lucerne, I was disappointed because the weather was not so great as we got closer to the mountains. It was cloudy, rainy and as the tour bus headed up the mountains it even started to snow. I thought we would get up to the top of Jungfraujoch and see nothing...and I was so looking forward to the view. As we took the cogwheel train up the mountains the sun was up there somewhere, I was just hoping it would try to peek out. The view on the train ride up was still gorgeous even though it was cloudy and dismal outside. However at some point when we made it to the top of the mountain through the tunnels and came out all of a sudden it was gorgeous blue skies, full sun, no clouds, and the scenery was breathtaking. We could see the clouds below us. I was so happy and really took time to enjoy soak it all in. You cannot predict the weather when booking tours in advance obviously...but you just never know what you will get. Even on a bad weather day below....it was 100 different weather up top. Awesome experience....highly recommend it :
