Great day out, if expensive, though hardly fair to market it as the top of Europe. We were staying at a chalet on the other side of the valley and enjoyed the trip up by train from Grund Grindelwand. Having visited the Zugspitze in Germany last year and actually getting to the summit, this was a bit of an anticlimax... More

The Jungfraujoch should be a "must do" in this part of the Swiss Alps, but there are a few things to be aware of. First and foremost, check the weather, because if the cloud is down you will see nothing and it will be a waste of your time and money, given that the tickets are not cheap. Secondly, this... More

Access to the Jungfraujoch is via a cogwheel train which travels through the Eiger and takes about 40 minutes. This aspect of the trip alone is wonderful and provides views of the Aletsch Glacier and Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau in addition to the villages in the valley. Despite the large numbers of visitors who access Jungfraujoch, it still seems to... More

We traveled by this train for about 6 stations which took one and a half hours to the top, changing trains after a 45 min ride. The view is spectacular with small towns with window boxes full of flowers, meadows,snow clad peaks and lakes.The second one soon entered a 16 km long tunnel. It stops at 2 stations which have...

This is an extraordinary place, reached in a extraordinary way, on a jampacked train going up and inside a mountain to come out at spectacular scenery. Truly remarkable and astonishing to be up so high and so exposed and so beautiful. We had good weather and visibility and had researched previously, managed to get a seat going up, it's a... More

Don't miss a trip. This is nice scenic Journey on train to Jungfru. You will be thrilled and surprised how the rail track was made on such a high altitude.

The weather on our day of visit was perfect, clear sky and not windy. The last train to Jungfraujoch has a number stops (each stop would have around 5 mins break), so one can accommodate the pressure during the uphill journey. Because of the good weather, I can see most of the surrounding mountains and Aletsch Glacier at Plateaux without... More

Our guide and driver where excellent. Her name was Antie. We started slightly late and our guide very nicely told the latecomer that it cannot happen again as there was a tight time schedule for the trip. We stopped for a coffee and bathroom break before heading up into the mountains for the train ride to the top of the... More

We had a cloudy day at Jungfrau but were still amazed with the trip. We enjoyed the different displays like the giant snow globes, chocolate shop and outdoor areas. We were blown away with the Ice Palace which was the highlight of our day since it was snowy and views were non-existent.

The journey is slightly long and it was longer for us as we travelled from Luzern to Jungfrau. We started at around 9 AM and were back only by 7 PM and were dead tired. But the place was good. We had to change trains from Luzern to Interlaken, then Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen and then one more to Kleine Scheidegg... More
