Overview
Embark on a spectacular Alpine journey from Zurich to the Top of Europe! Travel by coach through the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland's magnificent Jungfrau region, then hop aboard a cogwheel train and ride up to Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station at a staggering elevation of 11,333 feet (3,454 meters). A stunning panorama of snow-capped mountains and glaciers awaits you.
Highlights
  • Hassle-free Jungfraujoch ‘Top of Europe’ day trip from Zurich
  • Travel easily to one of Europe’s highest rail stations by coach and cogwheel train
  • Admire the Alpine and glacier views from the viewpoints 
  • Focus on the scenery without worrying about transport or timing 
  • Travel with a guide to learn about the Jungfraujoch’s history
What to Expect
Board a coach in central Zurich and journey south through Switzerland's scenic Bernese Oberland to Lauterbrunnen. On arrival, you'll ride the cogwheel train to Jungfraujoch, one of Europe’s highest-altitude train stations, set 11,333 feet (3,454 meters) above sea level in a UNESCO-listed wilderness, and dubbed the ‘Top of Europe.’ Gaze at the snowy mountains as the train navigates the Kleine Scheidegg pass, and disembark at Jungfraujoch to enjoy the different activities and viewpoints. Head for the Alpine Sensation, a visual-experience moving walkway that transports you past presentations showcasing the Jungfrau Railway’s history, and experience the Ice Palace glacier walk to see its glittering ice sculptures. Then, visit the Sphinx Observatory for stunning panoramas over the Aletsch Glacier, and the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau. If you wish, refuel at the restaurant (own expense) before riding the train back to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach awaits. Your tour finishes at the original starting point.

Should be no problem unless you have breathing problems due to altitude. We’re in our 60’s and we were ok
