Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Bought the Top of Europe pass for 3 days, which includes visit to Jungfraujoch. It was barely sufficient to enjoy all the hikes and activities at the various trails. Activities like First Flyer and First Glider, and sledding added to the fun.
  • A highlight for any traveler coming to Switzerland! Europe‚Äôs 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.
