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.

This is one of the top tourist destinations in Switzerland, with views of the largest glacier (Aletschgletscher). Though very well organized, the JFJ railway transports close to 1 Mio people up there every year. The trains are packed with tourists from India, China, Pakistan, Russia, Japan ... and the restaurants on top have names like "Bollywood". It is a great... More

Great way to experience winter during summer and have an amazing view. But the high cost and the bad experience with the train is another issue all together. For those who want to save, go for the deep discounted morning ticket where you need to board the first two trains and return within half day. However, if you have a... More

Very expensive! 204CHF to get up there by three trains. 2.5 hours each way. Very touristy and almost like a theme park. But the views are amazing.

Taking the train from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch through the Eiger is mindblowing. The Public spaces at the top are pretty much the tackiest we saw in Switzerland, but leave the building to walk over the glacier towards the Monchberghutte and you are soon overwhelmed with stunning scenery on what must be one of the highest and most beautiful...

Saw the picture of Jungfraujoch in travel magazine, thats why we took this trip to Switzerland. We took 4 trains from Interlaken West to top. Weather was ok not too great, glacier was beautiful. Its nice to be able to walk on ice trails. But we did not have water proof shoes so could not go far. The trip takes... More

Going up to Jungfraujoch is something we were looking forward to our entire trip, but the weather was not cooperating. On the last day we could go we got up really early only to look out the window and see clouds. However, we checked the online sky-cam and also the weather forecast on the Jungfraujoch website which said it would... More

We stayed in Interlaken and travelled to Jungfraujoch and can only say that this trip is wondrous. There are three legs of the train journey and signage is terrific so no hassle to get there. The scenery on the way up to the top is worth the time that it takes to get to the peak.

A couple of trains take you from Engelberg to Jungfrau. This is the highest point in the alps that can be easily accessed by tourists. You see the landscape changing as you go higher. There is a lot to see once you get there, too. Different attractions are marked out, including an Ice Palace. You can also get your Jungfrau... More

Cost of train trip is a little bit expensive and particularly if travelling as a family. We looked at it as a one off experience, the views were amazing and the engineering efforts have to be appreciated.

an amazing train ride up tp top. beat bet is the better restaurant to eat atop the glacier. there are ice caves , but dont be running... hard to catch your breath at this altitude. A truly awesome place to see. be sure to buy a postcard and have it postmarked at the highest post office on the planet.
