We went up thinking that the weather would be clear as it was in Lauterbrunnen, but we were disappointed. The tickets are very expensive and when we got to the snow, it was very foggy and cold. It would have been better had we been prepared with gloves and hats and if we had waited until it was a clear... More

From Jungfraujoch, we saw Jungfrau/Eigen/Monch at eye level! How spectacular! Make sure you come when the weather is nice and clear or else you cannot see anything up here....But at this station, there are other things you can do! Restaurant, shop, fun area for snowboarding and skiing, a crystal palace....history gallery etc! So lots to do too, and you can... More

Very expensive to get up to the top but well worth as the views are staggering and there is plenty to do. My teenage children particularly enjoyed the sledging/tubing at the 'snow fun area' which was an unexpected bonus. The restaurant is expensive but understandable given the position and it's worth getting out at the stops on the way up... More

Such a beautiful place, it was worth the 2+ hours going up on the train to Jungfraujosh, it is definitely top of the world not just Europe! Had the chance to go up it for the second time after going in 2001, went skiing around the alps and then had some really nice (but slightly overpriced) food. Ice sculptures were... More

What view of snow clad mountain with white fluff of clouds around; feels like mountains are playing football with clouds. Gives you a direct experience of how it feels on top of a snow clad mountain Lovely journey with greens giving way to white and then a complete white - wash :-) You even have an indian restaurant here!!

We were advised to take the 07.24 from Wengen to avoid the crowds, but the train was full anyway. We stopped twice on the way up, to acclimatise to the altitude, and arrived at the top around 09.00. The hotel had told us to do the 45 mins (each way) walk out to the Monchjochhutte. It was not an easy... More

A great family trip- snow in summer with fab scenery- and cold!!!, A nail biting uphill train journey. Get the trip for half price if you buy the swiss travel half-fare card (about 100 euro). a good tip is to send your luggage on by train to your next destination BUT you need to get it to the train station...

The train trip to the top of Europe is spectacular, Being there incredible. Go early in the day but be sure to wait until you are in Grindelwald to buy your ticket as poor visibility can spoil your trip and the tickets are not cheap. The air is thin (13,000 feet), the scenery amazing. There are also some nice ice... More

We took the train from Wengen to the Jungfraujoch. It was a spectacular journey with the Alps surrounding us for about half of the trip. The last 50 minutes of the journey are spent inside a remarkable tunnel that was constructed in the early part of the 1900s. The tunnel itself is an incredible feat of engineering. Upon arriving at... More
