  • Jungfraujoch: Roundtrip to the Top of Europe by Train

    1. Jungfraujoch: Roundtrip to the Top of Europe by Train

    Jungfraujoch Top of Europe is the best place in Europe to discover a world of snow and ice. The cogwheel railway travels to Europe’s highest railway station every day of the year. The view and adventure platform at 3454 meters above sea level unites in a place that fascinates people of the Alps: a majestic backdrop of ice, snow and rock with breathtaking far-sightedness. You can exchange the voucher for a ticket at Interlaken Ost, Jungfraujoch or Lauterbrunnen train stations or travel the other way around. The train departs every 30 minutes and the departure time is freely selectable. Once at the top, simply follow the signs to the tour and you will not miss any highlights. To do the tour it takes you aproximately 1 to 2 hours. There are also restaurants on the Top of Europe and even a Snow Fun Park in summer, so calculate 6 to 8 hours for the whole trip.

    This was a great buy and worth every penny. Lots of people around will help you and guide you all the way to the top. It is a lengthy journey, but nothing can beat those views or that experience.

  • Jungfrau Travel Pass: Unlimited Transportation Ticket

    3. Jungfrau Travel Pass: Unlimited Transportation Ticket

    Take in the views at Schynige Platte, adventure at Grindelwald First, or if you prefer, watch the sun set over Harder Kulm. The Jungfrau Travel Pass has it all: three to eight days travel to all destinations and a special price for the trip to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. What top excursions are included? Interlaken - Harder Kulm - Top of Adventure Kleine Scheidegg Schynige Platte - Top of Swiss Tradition Grindelwald - First - Top of Adventure Grütschalp - Top of Family Männlichen Mountain Grosse Scheidegg and Bussalp by bus This pass is an all-in-one and valid for 3 to 8 days. It allows you unlimited travel on all routes that are included.

    I purchased the 3 day pass last minute on the night before traveling fo Jungfrau the next day. It was the best thing I did. I received the confirmation and voucher immediately on the app and via email. All I needed to do was go to the Interlaken OST train station and exchange the print of the voucher for the pass. The only problem was that pass mentions that it includes the bus in Grindelwald but the bus driver told us that the pass was not valid so we walked to First Bahn which is a 10 mins walk from Grindelwald Station. Their customer service is responsive which was helpful to calm my nerves at 11pm when I was trying to make the reservation.

  • From Interlaken: Day Trip to Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

    4. From Interlaken: Day Trip to Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

    This 7-hour excursion begins with a short coach journey from Interlaken to the mountain resort of Grindelwald.

    I took the tour starting in Interlaken, but it actually started in Zurich, which would make it a very very long day. I think there was a stop in Interlaken for the Zurich people, and several of them didn't get back to the bus in time, so that delayed our departure by at least 20 minutes. The tour itself in JungFrau, including the new fast cable ride up to the Eiger was excellent. The cogwheel train up to the summit is uneventful, as it is mostly inside the mountain. The facilities at the "Top of Europe" are superb. Must better than at the top of Mont Blac, or the Matterhorn.
