Jungfraujoch is a saddle in the Berner Oberland connecting Jungfraujoch Mountains Eiger and Monch. Jungfraujoch is truly called the “Top of Europe” for being located at an altitude of 3454m. The trains are facilitated from Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen Resorts in order to reach it easily.
Travel to Europe’s highest train station – Jungfraujoch. It is situated right in the heart of UNESCO Natural World Heritage property of “Jungfraujoch Swiss Alps - Aletsch”, which surely would leave an indelible impression on you.
Marvel at the cogwheel trains and tracks that are the masterpieces of technology, which had been built between 1896 and 1912.
Start the trip to the top of Europe from the Jungfraujoch Railway. Take a ride through the scenic view of the enchanting Grindelwald Valley. The way is open-air for only the first two kilometres of the twelve-kilometre journey to the top.
In the higher elevations, there are two opportunities to disembark inside the tunnels here in the alpine rock. The observation windows of the Mountain Eiger station (at an altitude of almost 4000 meters) offer breath-taking alpine vistas.
On a clear day, you will not only see the cozy town of Grindelwald but also enjoy the astonishing views beyond Switzerland - the Vosges Mountain range in France and the Black Forest in Germany.
The must-visited destination of Jungfraujoch can be a shiny jewel to any trip throughout Switzerland. The feeling of the icy air gently caressing your face, the sound of the crunching snow under your feet and the magnificent view of the surroundings will take your breath away.
This region also offers a number of activities to discover this world of eternal ice and snow, such as visiting the technical wonder of the Ice Palace, created in 1934. The palace extends over one thousand square meters with imposing pillars and icy sculptures of wildlife and other exhibits curved from natural ice, as if they have been frozen in action a few minutes ago.
Another highlight is The Sphinx Tower - the highest observatories in the world, from where you can look around 360 degrees and rival in having pictures of Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau Mountains at the eye level.
On the way between the Sphinx Hall and Ice Palace, you can find the Alpine Sensation, which will send shivers down your spine. The reason is not only the frosty temperature but also the history of sacrifices the miners made to create this eternal winter wonderland that we enjoy nowadays.
If you prefer more of active rest, then visiting the Snow Fun Park, Aletsch Glacier Hike or reaching Moenchsjoch hut, which has the highest altitude in Switzerland, would be a great choice.
You are also offered to choose between the several panoramic restaurants in order to keep you warm from the cold. Here you can grab a hot drink or have a tasty meal.
Only making this trip on the top of Europe, you will feel that this is a different world well worth to take, not similar to what we have used to see before.
Thus, join Switzerland Tour to live the feeling of being between the heaven and the earth during an unforgettable private trip with an expert driver, starting from Zurich to the top of Europe - Jungfraujoch.
