The journey to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe, at 3454 metres Europe’s highest altitude railway station, is the highlight of every visit to Switzerland. It offers visitors a high-Alpine wonderworld of ice, snow and rock, which can be marvelled at from vantage terraces, the Aletsch Glacier or in the Ice Palace. On clear days, views extend as far as the Vosges mountains in France and Germany’s Black Forest.

An unforgettable experience

As everyone says, this is not cheap but it is a once in a lifetime experience. We save CHF50 by travelling on the 7:05 train from Interlaken Ost.

Definitely worth the trip and it's a once in a lifetime experience, however our experience was ruined by the crowds. Unbelievably crowded during our visit July last year. Loads of tourists and on the train to and from, my husband and I were the only couple which didn't belong in a tour group...We hardly managed to grab a spot on... More

Jungfraujoch lives up to its name as "the Top of Europe". To get there, my group start our journey at Grindewald train station and change to another train to get to the top of Swiss Alps. The train ride itself is exciting because we climb up and up pass, at first, small villages and, later, stoney mountain covered with snow... More

The ride up is lovely and once you hit the last leg you go through a 9 mile tunnel to get to the top. As others have written be careful of altitude sickness and move slowly. There are two 5 minute stops with lovely viewing platforms on the way up. Also there are many people here so it is a... More

You do not have to go on a organised tour to do this. Just buy the ticket and use the trains. We were lucky to strike a great day today. The weather is changing all the time so we checked the day before and rain was forecast after lunch so we planned an earlier trip. We stayed in Wengen and... More

We drove our car to Interlaken from Lucerne and followed the signs to the train station. There we found plenty of parking. The weather was not great but there was still a long queue to buy train tickets. But typical of Swiss efficiency, the wait wasn't very long. For 2 adults and 2 children the cost of return tickets was... More

We took the train from Interlakken to Klein Scheidegg and then the mountain train up to Jungfraujoch. There might be long queues to and from Klein Scheidegg so better to make reservations earlier. Swiss pass does not cover the journey on the mountain train but offers a discount. Once you reach Jungfraujoch, you are literally on top of Europe! You... More

I took the train to Jungfraujoch and, like many others, I was impatient to get to the top right away. This turned out to be a terrible idea, at least in my case. I knew in the past I felt a bit dizzy at high altitudes, but I never went up this high before, so I wasn't too worried. The... More

I've been reviewing many forums regarding whether to take this trip or not. Some say it's too pricy not worth, should go to the other mountain etc...but we went ahead to jungfrau. Stayed in a lovely town, Wilderswil. Free bus passes while staying in the interlaken region. We also got a Switzerland golden pass so for the Jungfrau trip we... More

Took the train from Interlaken. ( Swiss pass allows free rail and discounted bus fare ) Then to the top of Europe- try to get reserved tickets. From top of Europe suggest you take a walk to the hut thru snow ( otherwise it's only a typical touristy experience) : good shoes , warm clothes and sun glasses mandatory. -... More
