An unforgettable experience
I can hardly believe we are on the roof of Europe. An unforgettable experience. We would love to go hiking again, but we don't have enough time. We'll do it the next trip because one thing's for sure – we will return.
This unspoilt area is magnificent
I am here with my work colleagues. We are on our annual business trip and it's quite fantastic. This panorama is so extensive. The eternal unspoilt snow is impressive.
Upwards in comfort
The railway here is extremely comfortable and perfectly suited to older people and families – much better than a cable car. There is nowhere else with such a comfortable ascent.
Like another world
I've never seen anything like it. The mountains up here are so near – wonderful. It feels as if I were in another world.
My wife and I saw a television documentary about Jungfraujoch, and one thing was clear to us: we have to see it in reality. Now we are here and it's absolutely fantastic.
The perfect meeting place
I get together here with my friend who lives in Zurich. For us, the Jungfrau region is the perfect meeting place for a weekend. We love the mountains, and the view here of the Jungfraujoch is simply fantastic.
On your excursion to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe, to the highest railway station in Europe, you will climb to an altitude of 3,454 metres above sea level and reach the alpine mountain world. In summer and winter, temperatures below freezing point are to be expected and weather changes can also occur at short notice. We recommend that you dress according to the so-called “onion principle” so that you can adapt your clothing to the conditions. The basic equipment for the excursion includes a jacket, closed shoes, a hat, a pair of gloves and sunglasses because of the high-altitude sun.
Don’t worry about the weather. There is plenty to see and do on the Jungfraujoch in all weather, even the journey itself is worth the trip. Even if it is cloudy in the valley and it looks like bad weather, at an altitude of 3,454 metres above sea level and above, the clouds can often only be seen from above.
The fastest and most comfortable way takes you via Grindelwald Terminal / the new Eiger Express tricable gondola to the Jungfraujoch. From the Eiger Glacier station there is a connection to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe every 30 minutes, depending on season and demand. For details, please visit jungfrau.ch/fahrplan.
The visit to the Jungfraujoch is a day trip. It is best to reserve a whole day for the visit. Especially in summer (depending on weather conditions between May and October), the hike to the Mönchsjochhütte and a visit to the Snow Fun Park (both on the large Aletsch glacier) are well worth your time.
