  • From Zurich: Day Trip to Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

    1. From Zurich: Day Trip to Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

    Explore the snow-capped mountains of Jungfraujoch, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 2007 for its stunning High Alps scenery, and as the site of Europe’s largest glacier. It is also Europe's highest train station. The scenic coach journey takes you along the Brünig Pass and the shores of Lake Brienz to the Bernese Oberland. After a break in Interlaken, board the cable car at the Grindelwald Terminal for a spectacular 15-minute ride to the Eiger Glacier by gondola. From there, exchange to a cogwheel train that will take you to the peak of Jungfraujoch. Enjoy the stunning views of the triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau as you ride. Once at the top of Jungfraujoch, immerse yourself in the High-Alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock. Experience the adventure tour “Alpine Sensation,” marking the 100-year anniversary of the Jungfrau Railway, and visit the Sphinx Obser...

    It was a fun and wonderful experience, the guide was very nice, accommodating and knowledgeable. I would love to go on the trip again.

  • Jungfrau Travel Pass: Unlimited Transportation Ticket

    2. Jungfrau Travel Pass: Unlimited Transportation Ticket

    Take in the views at Schynige Platte, adventure at Grindelwald First, or if you prefer, watch the sun set over Harder Kulm. The Jungfrau Travel Pass has it all: three to eight days travel to all destinations and a special price for the trip to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. What top excursions are included? Interlaken - Harder Kulm - Top of Adventure Kleine Scheidegg Schynige Platte - Top of Swiss Tradition Grindelwald - First - Top of Adventure Grütschalp - Top of Family Männlichen Mountain Grosse Scheidegg and Bussalp by bus This pass is an all-in-one and valid for 3 to 8 days. It allows you unlimited travel on all routes that are included.

    I purchased the 3 day pass last minute on the night before traveling fo Jungfrau the next day. It was the best thing I did. I received the confirmation and voucher immediately on the app and via email. All I needed to do was go to the Interlaken OST train station and exchange the print of the voucher for the pass. The only problem was that pass mentions that it includes the bus in Grindelwald but the bus driver told us that the pass was not valid so we walked to First Bahn which is a 10 mins walk from Grindelwald Station. Their customer service is responsive which was helpful to calm my nerves at 11pm when I was trying to make the reservation.

  • Zermatt: Gornergrat Bahn Cogwheel Train Ticket

    3. Zermatt: Gornergrat Bahn Cogwheel Train Ticket

    Cross stunning bridges, ride through galleries and tunnels, idyllic forests, past gorges and mountain lakes as your climb the Gornergrat on the cogwheel train with the Matterhorn continually in view. At the summit, explore the picturesque alpine world of the Swiss Alps. With a sunny observation deck that remains accessible throughout the year, the Gornergrat at 3,089 metres above sea level provides spectacular views. The Gornergrat is surrounded by 29 four-thousand metre peaks including the highest Swiss mountain, the Dufourspitze, which has an altitude of 4,634 metres, and the third-largest glacier in the Alps, the Gorner glacier. The mountainscape panorama you'll experience is completely unique.

    Spectacular View of the Matterhorn on an (almost) cloudless day - 09-03-21. You'll be disappointed if it is overcast and the mountains are not visible. My day was almost perfect and I could see and capture pictures and memories of all the 3,000m + peaks. Be caseful of the lack of oxygen at that height. Walk slowly, breath deeply.

  • From Interlaken: Day Trip to Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

    4. From Interlaken: Day Trip to Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

    This 7-hour excursion begins with a short coach journey from Interlaken to the mountain resort of Grindelwald. Once there board the cable car at the Grindelwald Terminal for a spectacular 15-minute ride to the Eiger Glacier. From there, exchange to a cogwheel train that will take you to the peak of Jungfraujoch. When you reach the top, marvel at the high alpine wonderland of eternal ice, snow and rock. Experience the Alpine Sensation adventure tour marking the 100th anniversary of the Jungfrau Railway. Visit the Sphinx Observation Terrace and Plateau for breathtaking panoramic views of snow-capped peaks, neighboring countries and the Aletsch Glacier. Walk through the tunnels of the Ice Palace at the heart of the glacier. Restaurants are available for meals and refreshments. During the descent you’ll pass the holiday resort Wengen and stop at Lauterbrunnen, where the coach awaits for y...

    I took the tour starting in Interlaken, but it actually started in Zurich, which would make it a very very long day. I think there was a stop in Interlaken for the Zurich people, and several of them didn't get back to the bus in time, so that delayed our departure by at least 20 minutes. The tour itself in JungFrau, including the new fast cable ride up to the Eiger was excellent. The cogwheel train up to the summit is uneventful, as it is mostly inside the mountain. The facilities at the "Top of Europe" are superb. Must better than at the top of Mont Blac, or the Matterhorn.

  • Zermatt: Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car Ticket

    5. Zermatt: Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car Ticket

    Start your journey at the Zermatt-Matterhorn valley station.

First, travel in comfort in an 8-seat gondola of the Matterhorn Express on your way to Trockerner Steg. Pass lush green meadows, old Valais hamlets, and enchanting forests before the landscape changes to one with impressive moraines and stones polished by ice and glaciers.  At Trockener Steg, hop into the highest 3S cable car transporting you up to the peak. Take in spectacular views through the panoramic windows and enjoy the heated seats while crossing the Theodul Glacier. Once you reach the summit, visit the viewing platform and marvel at 38 alpine giants of the French, Italian, and Swiss Alps as well as 14 glaciers. At the cinema lounge, enjoy short movies about mountaineering, the loca...

    Not a very busy day in early September 2021 - so everything at the very top was closed. Nevertheless a pretty good view of the Matterhorn Glacier, on a partially cloudy day. The cable cars are excellent (though not as modern as those new ones at JungFrau). There are actually 4 lifts that interconnect, so you never have to leave the same car. Cars have external racks for both mountain bikes and skiis.

You can save a lot of money for food (lunch/dinner) and the selection of restaurants is also very good. I am discovering lots of new activities in Switzerland, also off-the-beaten track and I can take a friend and pay only for one person, which is cool!!!

After passing a lighthouse, the train will begin its descent on a steep track down to Andermatt, a village 1400m above sea level. The train will stop in An...

    This tour is good enough to follow self guide. Just get the tickets online and follow the schedule. Make sure you know which glacier express route you wanted to see. I made a mistake thinking that the tour will go all the way to Zermatt but the route I purchased stopped at Bern. So, it was quite a disappointment. Our apple pie was not served in the train but was packed up because the cafe forgot to serve us on time.
