Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Bern / Bernese Oberland / Grindelwald-Wengen-Murren-Lauterbrunnen / Jungfraujoch
Discover spectacular views of an icy Alpine wilderness at the very top of Europe by visiting Jungfraujoch, the continent's highest train station. Nearly two million people travel to this winter wonderland each year, lured by its panoramic views of mountains and glaciers, skiing, and snowboarding. Opened in 1912, the Jungfrau railway line passes through a tunnel that took several thousand workers over a decade to drill. The station sits 3,454 m (11,330 ft) above sea level, with the Sphinx viewing house providing sweeping vistas of the largest glacier in the Alps, a World Heritage Site. The adjoining commemoration hall displays memorials to miners who died building the railway and features a giant and incredibly detailed snow globe. Saunter through the Ice Palace, a year-round frozen hallway featuring ice sculptures. Dine in one of several panoramic restaurants, pick up a box of Swiss chocolates, and test your golfing skills in a hole-in-one challenge above the glacier. No matter the time of year you're visiting, don't forget your camera, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Make Jungfraujoch part of your personalized Murren itinerary using our Murren trip planner.

A highlight for any traveler coming to Switzerland! Europe’s highest railway is certainly an engineering masterpiece of design. First take a cable car up to the train station where you switch into a cog wheel train which then runs through a tunnel in the heart of the mounting ascending to this marvelous viewpoint and diner! It was foggy when we visited but still incredible. The ice cave was super fun to explore and slide around in.
(Photos includes the way up and down the mountain) Joined a tour to visit the mountain to save on logistical planning, and it was very well organised by “Best of Switzerland” tour 👍🏻 our guide Rebecca was very knowledge and friendly, not to mention super enthusiastic throughout our entire visit - constantly engaging everyone during each stopover or transit. ⏰ The rides to and fro the peak were very well organised, with little to no downtime between each transition, leaving sufficient time for toilet breaks too - departing from Lucerne and return took us from 9am to 7pm+ 🏔 the view at the top of the mountain was unfortunately hindered by fog, would recommend to check the live cam at the top of the mountain to manage expectations prior to embarking on the trip 🏞 remaining facilities at the peak was good though, with multiple visit points, clear signage to guide the way and decent selection of food and beverages (albeit at a steep price, pun intended) ⛑ safety though, could be looked into - with very slippery surfaces once you step into the open area. Would recommend visitors to wear shoes with grip before embarking on the snowy surfaces Though we didn’t get to enjoy the full view of what’s it like at the peak, it was still an experience being at the top of Europe, with unparalleled views throughout the way too 👍🏻
