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

The weather was fantastic for our trip to Jungfraujoch. The train ride provided grand views and once on top it was spectacular. The ice cave sculptures and wooden carvings were not memorable, but provided some photo ops. Views of the mountain peaks, glacier and valleys below are incomparable. Money well spent if the weather is good. Take the early trains... More

Though expensive for adults, this visit was worth every penny. The observatory at near mountain top has fantastic views of the mountains and country. The glacier/snow is pristine. Though we did not completely hike to the farthest point of the Jungfraujoch (build in lots of time!) we had an amazing exploration. Do go on a sunny day! Internally the chocolate... More

I still can't get over our amazing jungfraujoch trip. We booked our tour in Best of Switzerland tour travel online. The trip was punctual. We left in Zurich at 8.00 am and we travelled to Lucerne for 2 hours, a town located in north Switzerland. Lucerne is a gateway to our Jungraujoch trip embedded with beautiful and magnificent lakes, mountains... More

I visited the Jungfraujoch with my family (incl. 2 elderly folks, and they could take the cold & altitude so it's not that bad.) We bought the CHF135 Good Morning Ticket, went up at 7.55am & got back to Grindelwald on the 1pm train. Be careful not to miss it, if not you'll have to pay a fine of CHF35... More
