Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Start your day trip from the bus terminal in central Zurich and depart by coach for the scenic journey south. Travel among the towering peaks of Switzerland's Bernese Oberland to Lauterbrunnen, where a cogwheel train carries you up to Europe’s highest-altitude train station, situated in a UNESCO-listed Alpine wilderness.

The 50-minute train ride winds through the Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass in the Burnese Alps. Upon arrival at Jungfraujoch, situated at an elevation of 11,333 feet, disembark at the Top of Europe and head to the Alpine Sensation—a round-tour subway opened to mark the centenary of the Jungfrau Railway. 

Head to the Ice Palace for a glacier walk and stop at the Sphinx Observatory for sweeping views of Europe's longest glacier: Aletsch Glacier. From viewing platforms, enjoy a 360-degree panorama of this winter wonderland draped in a breathtaking display of ice and snow. On a clear day, look beyond to the mountain peaks of neighboring Italy and France. 

If you wish, purchase a snack or warm drink at the on-site restaurant (own expense) before the return cogwheel train ride down to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach awaits. Relax on the drive back to Zurich, arriving at the bus terminal in the evening.

First is very far away from Zúrich to make it in one day tour with kids. It was horrible the Schedule they give us only 3 minutes to get out of the bus and walk to the train station and with kids this is imposible misión, we miss the train, so we have to wait 1 more hour to take the next train to the top. Over there seems to be gorgeous but its no to be done un 1 hour walk, To our bad luck that day was a storm so everything was close and we could no see nothing It was to much money to be just on a bus and on a train

Due to weather across the Alps, we were not able to go to Jungfraujoch, but our guide Raymond was quick to come up with an awesome plan. We were able to see 3 towns that would have been hard to get to without a guide. Thanks Raymond for an awesome tour and bringing great energy!

I echo comments from others. Overall it is a good and pleasant experience. The tour guide is very helpful and attend to details with a tight schedule. The bus is nice and mountain view is excellent! The only pity is that, not a fault due to the tour itself, is that we spend 9-10 hrs round trip just on the road with only 2.5 hrs on Jungfraujoch, which is basically enough for Nov. If you look for more extensive exploration or hiking in the mountain, leaving from Zurich is too far.
