Discover the "top of Europe" on this day trip to Jungfraujoch: explore glacier-marked valleys and peaks and marvel at unparalleled panoramic views of the Swiss Alps.
Jungfraujoch Day Trip Itinerary
Departing from Lucerne at 9 am, you'll travel through the verdant landscapes of rural Switzerland in the direction of the Bernese Oberland, a region characterised by its picturesque villages, dramatic mountains and more than 800 lakes. You'll stop for a break in Interlaken, the tourism capital of the Bernese Alps so-named for the two lakes between which it is nestled, before continuing on to Grindelwald.
Arriving in Grindelwald, an Alpine village located at almost 3,400 feet (1,034 metres) above sea level, you'll begin your ascent to the highest train station in Europe enjoying a spectacular journey on a cogwheel train. The journey takes you through lush valleys and between towering peaks before reaching Jungfraujoch.
A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Jungfraujoch offers breathtaking views over the Mönch and Jungfrau mountains and the Eiger glacier. It is also home to a number of attractions that give you an immersive experience of the Swiss Alps. You'll have access to the Alpine Sensation adventure tour, allowing you to visit the Sphinx Observation Terrace and Plateau viewpoint, where you'll enjoy bird's eye views over the surrounding snow-capped peaks as well as Europe's longest glacier: Aletsch. You can also explore the tunnels at the Ice Palace - unmissable!
Having made the most of your free time at Jungfraujoch, you'll head back down the mountain by train, passing through Wengen, an Alpine village characterised by its traditional wooden houses. Finally, you'll reach Lauterbrunnen, where your bus will be waiting for you for the return journey to Lucerne. Your tour will come to an end at approximately 7 pm.
