Discover the magic of Jungfraujoch, one of Switzerland's most spectacular natural sights. Climb up to 3,466 metres above sea level on the famous rack railway and find yourself at the Top of Europe!
Jungfraujoch Day Trip Itinerary
Your excursion to the "Top of Europe" will begin from the Sihlquai bus terminal in Zurich. Driving through the beautiful countryside of the Bernese Oberland, you'll make a stop in the idyllic town of Interlaken, so named for its location nestled between Lakes Thun and Brienz. After admiring picturesque Interlaken, you'll head to the nearby village of Grindelwald.
In Grindelwald, we'll take the Eiger Express tot he Eiger Glacier where you'll climb on board the rack railway, or cogwheel train, which will take you up to Europe's highest train station!
Here, at over 3,400 metres above sea level (11,371 ft), you'll find yourself on Jungfraujoch mountain. The "Top of Europe", as it is also known, offers spectacular views over the surrounding peaks: Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau itself. You'll be left speechless by the stunning natural landscapes, which have been declared a World Heritage Site.
At the peak of Jungfraujoch, you'll have approximately two and a half hours of free time to enjoy the activities on offer here and recharge your batteries with lunch in the restaurant. After making the most of the mountain, you'll meet back up with the guide to catch the rack railway back down to Lauterbrunnen, before making the return journey to Zurich by bus, arriving at about 8 pm.
