Jungfraujoch is a saddle in the Berner Oberland connecting the Jungfraujoch Mountains Eiger and Monch. Jungfraujoch is called the “Top of Europe” for being located at an altitude of 3454m. The trains are facilitated from Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen Resorts in order to reach it easily.
Travel to Europe’s highest train station – Jungfraujoch, situated right in the heart of the UNESCO Natural World Heritage property of “Jungfraujoch Swiss Alps – Aletsch”, which is guaranteed to leave an indelible impression on you.
Marvel at the cogwheel trains and tracks that are masterpieces of technology, built between 1896 and 1912.
Start your trip to the top of Europe from the Jungfraujoch Railway. Take a ride through the scenic view of the enchanting Grindelwald Valley. The way is open-air for the first two kilometres of the twelve-kilometre journey to the top.
In the higher elevations, there are two opportunities to disembark inside the tunnels here in the alpine rock. The observation windows of the Mountain Eiger station (at an altitude of almost 4000 metres) offer breathtaking alpine vistas.
On a clear day, you will not only see the cosy town of Grindelwald below but also enjoy the astonishing views beyond Switzerland - the Vosges Mountain range in France and the Black Forest in Germany.
The must-visit destination of Jungfraujoch will add a shiny jewel to any trip throughout Switzerland. The feeling of the icy air gently caressing your face, the sound of the crunching snow under your feet and the magnificent view of the surroundings will take your breath away.
This region also offers a number of activities to discover this world of eternal ice and snow, such as visiting the technical wonder of the Ice Palace, created in 1934. The palace extends over one thousand square metres with imposing pillars and icy sculptures of wildlife and other exhibits carved from natural ice as if they have been frozen in action.
Another highlight is The Sphinx Tower – one of the highest observatories in the world, from where you can look 360 degrees and revel in pictures of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau Mountains at eye level.
On the way between the Sphinx Hall and the Ice Palace, you can find the Alpine Sensation, which will send shivers down your spine. It’s not just the frosty temperature but the history of sacrifices the miners made to create this eternal winter wonderland that we enjoy today.
If you prefer more active rest and relaxation, then visiting the Snow Fun Park, Aletsch Glacier Hike or reaching Moenchsjoch hut, which has the highest altitude in Switzerland, would be a great choice.
You are also offered the choice between several panoramic restaurants to keep you warm from the cold. Why not grab a hot drink or have a tasty meal? This is a whole new world, ready to take you on your next adventure.
