My wife and i decided to head up to Jungfraujoch and see what all the fuss was about.
Well, apparently it's the restaurant. Crystal restaurant to be exact. Fantastic food and service.
Yes, the views were great from the platform and yes, it's an amazing location. But the real question here is.... is it worth the 2 hours each way?
My answers is two-part. If you can only see this mountain, then yes, go for it. If you plan to go to other places, like Mt. Pilatus, or Gornergrat in Zermatt, then skip this one. Particularly if you only have 1 or 2 days in this area. It's an all day activity any way you slice it.
We first heard it wasn't worth visiting from a native from Interlaken. But we figured they were just a jaded local. But after visiting here and other places elsewhere in Switzerland i agree. This isn't the best mountain or view of Switzerland. Go to Zermatt, take the train up around that region or even take a helicopter tour near the Matterhorn if you truly want the best photographs of these types of things.
That's not to say all was bad, the views are good and it has a glacier walk and such. But overall, it's a bit of a tourist trap in my honest opinion. And let me not forget the price! We both had a swisspass, so for us, it was much cheaper than the normal ticket price. And i still feel the way i do about this attraction, i suppose if i paid full price, i'd go down to 3 stars.
