Jungfraujoch Top of Europe Day Trip from Lucerne
From US$240,85
Travel to Jungfraujoch — Europe's highest railway station at a dizzying height of 11,333 feet (3,454 meters) — on this 9.5-hour day trip from Lucerne. A scenic coach drive via the Bernese Oberland delivers you to Lauterbrunnen for a cogwheel train ride. You’ll wind through the Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass below the foot of the Eiger North Face. At the Top of Europe, explore the glaciated Ice Palace and enjoy World Heritage–listed views of the soaring Swiss Alps and Aletsch Glacier from the Sphinx Observatory.
What to Expect
Start your day trip near the main train station in central Lucerne, where you’ll meet your guide aboard the coach for the drive to Lauterbrunnen. The scenic journey winds below the impressive mountain peaks of the Bernese Oberland en route to your destination in the UNESCO-listed wilderness of Switzerland’s Bernese Alps.

On arrival at Lauterbrunnen, your guide accompanies you on a 50-minute cogwheel train ride to Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest-altitude railway station sitting 11,333 feet above sea level. Along the way, travel through the breathtaking mountain pass of Kleine Scheidegg, situated beneath the famous Eiger North Face. 

Disembark at the Top of Europe and head to the Alpine Sensation — a round-tour subway opened to mark the centenary of the Jungfrau Railway. This latest attraction links the Ice Palace and Sphinx Observatory, where you can soak up panoramic views over Aletsch Glacier, Europe's longest glacier. On a clear day, look as far as the snow-capped peaks of France and Italy. 

If you wish, purchase a snack or a warm drink at the on-site restaurant (own expense) before your return down the mountainside to the Alpine town of Grindelwald. Then hop aboard your coach for the return drive to central Lucerne where your tour concludes in the evening.

Simply magical!

I travelled there by train from Cham (near Zurich), so took 5 hours and a few train changes. However, it was well and truly worth it and saw some great scenery on the way. My Eurorail Pass covered all train costs to Interlaken. However, from...More

We had a fantastic day, amazing!

Jungfraujoch and the surrounding towns are really beautiful and definitely worth the trip. On the day we travelled it was overcast and we were worried that the views would be limited, but once we got to the top it was crystal clear and absolutely amazing!

Must do

Not only were the views incredible but the whole experience was very well done. There was much more to do at the top of the mountain than I anticipated, some of them being an ice sculpture exhibit, snow sport area with zip lines and even...More

Lucerne to Kleine Scheidegg and Grindelwad

The driver Luis and the guide Raymond are an awesome team, especially Raymond's sense of humour and knowledge. The session was fun. We parted before the Jhungfrau trip but the details till then was enough to form a view. The bus is punctual and considering...More

Mountain view is fantastic, but day trip not worth.

Most of the time, we are on the road in the coach, didn't have enough time for photo-taking. Even when we are at the mountaintop, we didn't know we can go out to the outdoors. So quite disappointing we spent all the time in the...More
