Owner description: Icy air streams across your face, snow crunches under your feet, and the view nearly takes your breath away: on one side the view of the Mittelland up to the Vosges, on the other the Aletsch glacier, bordered by four thousand metre peaks. Standing on the Jungfraujoch 3,454 metres above sea level, you can feel it with your first step: this is a different world. It's one you have to experience.

Almost balked at the steep ticket but it was well spent. The place is so well run that the tourists are given the experience of a life time, be it the train journeys or the attractions or the sights.
Signage and guidance is friendly and legible enabling a smooth go over of the place. Only hiccup was that one activity included in our Ticket - 'Flying Fox ' was denied, stated to be out of order. This is not expected from such high class otherwise so well run place. And no compensation either.

Whole of Switzerland is beautiful but Jungfrau is all the more.

Every moment spent in scenic Switzerland was a Picture Postcard moment.
The pristine beauty of the Swiss experience is made even better with the immaculately managed Swiss Rail and the team looking after the Jungfrau tour.
Kudos to the lot of them.
The best place to be in Switzerland is Interlaken, we stayed at Hotel Beausite, a classic with a beautiful view of the Jungfrau from the dinning room which makes you want to reach out to the snow peaks.
It is a must do. Every CHF spent is so worth it. If you have a Swiss Rail Pass there is even a 20% discount offered on the regular fare.
Word of advice: Go well clad, wear non -skid shoes, carry a good camera with Panaromic capture mode. And good UV glares.
All hotels in the vicinity normally have an idea of the weather and cloud conditions at the peak so make it a point to study the same before starting your tour. Keep 2 days up your sleeve for the Jungfrau tour, visit on a clear day.
Have a beer before the last leg up as it helps desensitise you against the sudden high altitude terrain.

The views from the train on the way up are stunning and the view at the top is simply breathtaking! I have never seen anything as amazing as this! Yes it is expensive, but worth every cent, you won't be disappointed. It is more than a look out - ice sculptures, cafe, and you can go out on the snow! Check the weather first.

The view from Jungfraujoch is fantastic. We visited the mountain in the morning on a clear day so we had a perfect view over the snow covered mountain peaks. The train journey to Jungfraujoch is amazing in itself. We took the train from Interlaken through Lauterbrunnen which was beautiful. Tickets for the train to Jungfraujoch are very expensive but the incredible views along the way are worth it!
