Know More about this tour

Head to Sihlquai Bus Terminal near Zurich train station in the morning to meet your multilingual guide who speaks English, Spanish and German and board your luxury coach. Then, relax on the scenic drive through the Bernese Oberland countryside.

Youll feel as if youve entered a fairy tale as you stare at the sheer beauty of the white jagged mountains above Bern, a range known as the Bernese Alps. The scenery is truly mesmerizing, and it only gets better!

Arrive about two hours later in Interlaken for a quick break. This famous town is situated between two lakes, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, and serves as the main transport gateway to the region's mountains and lakes.

Continue to the nearby village of Grindelwald, where youll board the cogwheel train for a spectacular 1.5-hour ride via the Kleine Scheidegg high mountain pass to Jungfraujoch, a famous mountain pass between the Mnch and Jungfrau peaks. Youll be treated to stunning views of the world-famous triple peaks of Eiger, Mnch and Jungfrau along the way.

After your journey, disembark at Jungfraujoch, one of Europe's highest railway stations! Standing at an elevation of approximately 11,332 feet (3,454 meters), Jungfrauoch immerses you in an Alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock.

Follow your guide to the Top of Europe building, adjacent to the station accessible by an underground tunnel. At the lookout point, gaze down on the snowy peaks of Aletsch Glacier, spread out in front of you. Then, take the elevator to Sphinx Observatory for more incredible vistas from the terrace. Don't forget to walk through the tunnels of the Ice Palace, located in the heart of the glacier; it's an unforgettable experience!

  • Stephanie our tour guide and the driver sorry ive forgotten his name!! was excellent!!! Too bad we couldn't go all the way up to Jungfraujoch because of the weather but they actually went out of their way and brought us to Lucern for a quick pitstop and short walking tour! I would definitely book again with the company in my future trips and might even this one again as i have not conquered the top of Europe!
    p/s the chocolate store that she will recommend at the end of the tour is reaaaaaaalllllyyyy good!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Outstanding!!! Outstanding views all the way there and even more outstanding ones on the trip up and at the top. Plenty of time was provided to see everything. A must see!

  • BEST TRIP WE'VE EVER TAKEN!
    Words cannot express how breathtaking the view from the top was. It almost looked fake because it looks like a post card. I think a trip in the winter is much more majestic than a trip in summer time would be. The snow everywhere made it spectacular. This trip was worth EVERY penny spent. I was hesitant at first because it was so much money, but it would have taken longer to get there and would have been more expensive to go on our own...we looked up the tickets. We are so, so happy that we had a most beautiful day so we could see for miles form the top. If it's cold, be sure to bring appropriate gear. It is a long day and as all the other reviews mention, bring some snacks and water. LOTS OF WATER. Isabela was our tour guide and she was wonderful. She pointed out anything that was relevant and made sure to chat a bit with us individually. She's awesome! Also, kudos to the driver for driving that huge tour bus on the narrow, windy roads.

    This trip is virtually the same as the other trip to Jungfraujoch except it makes a couple different stops along the way to drop off people. We didn't get to go back through Lauderbrunnen due to a ski race which was a bummer, but it wasn't like we would spend any time there anyway.

  • Brilliant experience

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Jungfraujoch is lovely. Of the 12 hrs, we only spent 1.5hrs at Jungfraujoch which was a bit disappointing as we had to rush. Our main issue with this tour is that our guide told us nothing about Jungfraujoch or the area. Travel independently for cheaper with the same result and more free time.

  • I was glad i chose this over the Mt. Titlis tour -- it was a great ride, the tour guide was a fantastic lady the time allotted to do stuff was just enough, the view was AMAZING the quick stop at Interlaken was a bonus.

  • We really enjoyed ourselves on the tour. Finding the bus was easy and the tour guide Bart really knew his stuff. We were lucky the weather was glorious and it meant we saw all the mountains. Thank you!!

  • I really do not recommend this tour in winter. Although snow is pretty, it really ruins the experience when it constantly snows and you can't see the beautiful scenery. Also, on snow days there's not much to do at the top of Jungfrau. At the end of the tour I felt I had spent a lot of money for not very much. However, I'm sure it would be a much better experience during the summer.
