Swiss Alps Day Trip from Zurich: Jungfraujoch and Bernese Oberland

Likely To Sell Out
Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
A journey to the UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch mountain is well worth the views, but it can be quite the hassle planning your visit. A guided day trip is the easiest way to visit Switzerland’s must-see mountaintop, with additional pit stops at Interlaken and Grindelwald for a deeper look at Bernese Oberland culture. Plus, you're sure to stay comfortable in any weather during your ride from and to Zurich in a climate-controlled vehicle.
  • A guided day trip removes the hassle of planning your visit to Jungfraujoch
  • Admire stunning views of Alpine landscape throughout your tour
  • Entrance to Sphinx Observatory and Ice Palace included as summit activities
  • Round-trip transportation from Zurich in coach and cogwheel train included
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Zurich, and head for the charming ski resort of Grindelwald aboard a comfortable coach. Learn about the Bernese Oberland region as you pass through the Swiss countryside. Stop in Interlaken long enough for a quick photo and a hot drink (own expense). Upon arrival in Grindelwald, board a classic cogwheel train for a ride up the UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch mountain, aptly nicknamed the “Top of Europe” for its incredible summit at 11,330 feet (3,450 meters). Disembark at the summit for stunning views of the Alpine landscape from the Sphinx Observatory and a guided tour through the frozen tunnels of the Ice Palace. Enjoy free time to dine or explore before re-boarding the train and meeting your coach for the return journey to Zurich.

Took the bus, then three cable cars to reach the top - stunning, breathless views and organisation to get to top and back was superb. A sight not to be missed, cheaper than Jungfraujoch but not quite so high. Nevertheless, simply amazing !!

Beautiful place, great visit, long day. From Zurich, you really don't get to stop in Lucern other than to pick up more travelers, so don't exepct to see the bridge or Lion of Lucern this trip. NOTE: No Coffee on bus, which is a bummer for such an early morning departure.

If you are a person who like to see the variety and want to be amazed by the extent the engineering can take you on land then this is the place to visit the engineering marvel. The way the Swiss engineer has taken this place to a different level all together is just mind blowing

Amazing to be outside in the Alps at 11,000 feet! Long journey to get there but very scenic and worth it.
