Overview
A journey to the UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch mountain is well worth the views, but it can be quite the hassle planning your visit. A guided day trip is the easiest way to visit Switzerland’s must-see mountaintop, with additional pit stops at Interlaken and Grindelwald for a deeper look at Bernese Oberland culture. Plus, you're sure to stay comfortable in any weather during your ride from and to Zurich in a climate-controlled vehicle.

Highlights
  • A guided day trip removes the hassle of planning your visit to Jungfraujoch
  • Admire stunning views of Alpine landscape throughout your tour
  • Entrance to Sphinx Observatory and Ice Palace included as summit activities
  • Round-trip transportation from Zurich in coach and cogwheel train included
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Zurich, and head for the charming ski resort of Grindelwald aboard a comfortable coach. Learn about the Bernese Oberland region as you pass through the Swiss countryside. Stop in Interlaken long enough for a quick photo and a hot drink (own expense). Upon arrival in Grindelwald, board a classic cogwheel train for a ride up the UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch mountain, aptly nicknamed the “Top of Europe” for its incredible summit at 11,330 feet (3,450 meters). Disembark at the summit for stunning views of the Alpine landscape from the Sphinx Observatory and a guided tour through the frozen tunnels of the Ice Palace. Enjoy free time to dine or explore before re-boarding the train and meeting your coach for the return journey to Zurich.

It's impossible to criticise a tour that ends up with one visiting a site that is awe inspiring. Jungfraujoch, the summit, the Sphinx, the views, the ascent by train are all phenomenal. Throw the arctic sensation element, the ice sculptures and that is just the icing on the

Response from Best-of-Switzerland, Leiter Gästebetreuung at Swiss Alps Day Trip from Zurich: Jungfraujoch and Bernese Oberland
Responded 3 weeks ago
Dear N C, Thank you very much for joining our tour to the “Top of Europe” – we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us! We are sorry that you could not fully enjoy the time on the summit due to altitude sickness. A healthy body usually has excellent adaptation mechanisms that allow a relatively fast ascent to medium and higher altitudes. To avoid altitude sickness, we recommend wearing warm clothes (even in summer), to drink plenty of water, to eat and drink something before departure and to move and breathe slowly. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Switzerland and look forward to welcoming you back on our tours on your next trip to Zürich! Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

So - it says they may cancel due to weather. I booked early in my trip in case they needed to reschedule. After 4.5 hours of travel there (plus 1 hour for a shopping stop - which always annoys me on excursions, does the operator get a kickback or something?), we get to the

Response from Best-of-Switzerland, Guest Relations Manager at Swiss Alps Day Trip from Zurich: Jungfraujoch and Bernese Oberland
Responded 3 Mar 2020
Dear Anthony, Thank you very much for joining our tour to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe despite the bad weather predicted. All our excursions take place as planned regardless of the weather. Only the exceptional case that partners (such as cable car companies) must close lifts and railways for safety reasons, the programme will be amended and an alternative attraction will be visited. According to our policy, all reservations can be modified or cancelled free of charge up to 24 hours prior to the indicated departure time. We believe that this offers our guests great flexibility to check the weather forecast and to make any necessary changes to their plans. However, for many guests that have never experienced the mountains or snow before, Jungfraujoch is a memorable adventure in all weathers. As Interlaken is conveniently located along the journey and is a popular destination for many guests, we include a stop of approx. 45 minutes. This gives our guest a break from the 2 ½-hour journey from Zürich already behind them and a chance to grab a snack, to do some shopping or to go sightseeing before proceeding to Jungfraujoch. We are sorry to hear that you had to wait for 20 minutes to board the train in Grindelwald. We take this buffer time into account so that the guests have enough time to use the bathrooms and to make it onto the pre-reserved train even with heavy traffic. We hope that you were still able to enjoy a wonderful stay in Switzerland and look forward to welcoming you back on one of our tours on your next trip to Zürich. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

I must say this was well worth the price. The guide was incredible, switched between languages like I dont know what and was very knowledgeable. We felt quite mountain sick but the guide assured us we were ok as he was himself quite sick each time. This is a once in a lifetime
