Description

This extraordinary Alpine adventure takes you to the top of Europe to discover the majestic beauty of Jungfraujoch. A cogwheel train leads you through snow-capped peaks to the continent's highest railway station, where you can gaze over neighbouring countries and the longest glacier in Europe.

Journeying from Zurich into the Alps at Interlaken, you reach Lauterbrunnen to board your cogwheel train. Pass Kleine Scheidegg on your way to Jungfraujoch. Located 3,455 m (11,330 feet) above the ground and connected to the Top of Europe building, Jungfraujoch is Europe's highest railway station.

Upon arrival, you're free to visit the incredible Ice Palace, built in the 1930s by two guides who hand-carved the huge hall with nothing but an ice axe and saw. After wandering through this surreal world and taking in its pristine sculptures, move along the Alpine Sensation subway line. Stop at different alcoves to learn more about the region's tourism history.

Continue upwards to the Sphinx Observation Terrace for incredible panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and valleys. Here, take in Europe's longest glacier, the Alestch. When you've had your fill of fresh air and snowy expanses, head back downhill to Grindelwald for your comfortable coach ride back to Zurich.

A very long and busy (at times hurried) day trip and a lot of time on bus getting there but the views were amazing. Definitely worth the trip!
