Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe

The Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe is the most profitable segment of the Group. The core of this segment is the highest railway station in Europe at 3,454 metres above sea level, situated within the UNESCO World Heritage Site SWISS ALPS Jungfrau-Aletsch. The marketing of the trip with the Wengernalp Railway and the Jungfrau Railway to the Jungfraujoch is the strategic "heart" of the company.

Top of Europe exceeded the magic mark of one million visitors for the second time. This number is considered to be the target value in the medium term.
