Full description
Explore the snow-capped mountains of Jungfraujoch, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 2007 for its stunning High Alps scenery, and as the site of Europe’s largest glacier. It is also Europe's highest train station.

The scenic coach journey takes you along the Brünig Pass and the shores of Lake Brienz to the Bernese Oberland. After a break in Interlaken, board the cogwheel train in Grindelwald for a spectacular ride via Kleine Scheidegg.

Enjoy the stunning views of the triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau as you ride. Once at the top of Jungfraujoch, immerse yourself in the High-Alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock.

Experience the adventure tour “Alpine Sensation,” marking the 100-year anniversary of the Jungfrau Railway, and visit the Sphinx Observation Terrace and Plateau for the most breathtaking views of the Aletsch Glacier. Stroll through the tunnels of the Ice Palace in the heart of the glacier for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
