What others say about their visit to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe:

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.

Daniel Schalbetter

Daniel Schalbetter Salesman Thun, Switzerland

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.

Simply fantastic

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.

Frequently asked questions

  • Do I need a seat reservation for the journey to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe?

    For the journey to the Jungfraujoch, we strongly recommend a paid seat reservation (CHF 10 per person). This reservation is valid for return journeys on the Jungfrau Railway from Eigergletscher / Kleine Scheidegg and ensures that you can travel at the desired time. Without a timed seat reservation, the Jungfrau Railway may well be full at peak times and you will have to wait for the next train. Book now at jungfrau.ch/seatreservation.

  • High mountains: What is the best clothing for a trip to the Jungfraujoch?

    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.

  • Does the weather play a role when visiting the Jungfraujoch?

    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.

  • Where can I park?

    For day visitors arriving by car, we recommend using the Park+Ride Matten bei Interlaken. An overview of all car parks and parking spaces and their live status can be found on the Parking page.

  • How often does a train go to the Jungfraujoch each day or how many connections are there?

    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.

  • How much does it cost for a child to travel to the Jungfraujoch?

    Children up to 5 years of age always travel free of charge. Children aged 6 to 15 either travel free with the Junior Card or Children's Travelpass, or pay CHF 20.-. The above-mentioned family cards can be purchased for CHF 30 per child at any SBB station in Switzerland.

    The family reductions such as the Junior Card, Children's Travelpass or Swiss Family Card are not valid in combination with the Jungfrau Travel Pass or the Unlimited Jungfrau Summer Pass. Children aged 6-15.99 years require the Jungfrau Travel Pass or Unlimited Jungfrau Summer Pass at a price of CHF 30.00 net per child.

  • Give yourself enough time

    The visit to the Jungfraujoch is a day trip. It is best to reserve a whole day for this. Especially in summer, the hike to the Mönchsjochhütte and a visit to the Snow Fun Park (both on the large Aletsch glacier) are well worth your time.
