Jungfrau Tour

Was a very good tour but would have liked more then 2 hours at Jungfrau. I felt rushed to see everything and to have lunch. The ice palace was wonderful so don’t miss it. Weather was perfect!

Dear Lynn, Thank you very much for your joining our tour to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe from Interlaken! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit of Europe's highest train station with perfect weather conditions. We totally understand that you would have liked to spend more time on the summit. Depending on train connections, the stay is about 2-2.5 hours. While it is sufficient for the main sights and to have lunch, there is so much to discover that it is impossible to see it all in one visit. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Interlaken and hope to welcome you again during your next trip to Switzerland! Best regards, Amanda from Best of Switzerland Tours

Jungfrau in the Heavy Clouds

The mountain was socked in by heavy clouds during our entire visit. The guide tried very hard to make the best of a “bad luck” situation. The highlight of the trip was the Ice Palace and the Rosti I had for lunch.

Dear Donald_M Thank you very much for joining our excursion to the Bernese Oberland, visiting Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. We are sorry that the weather impacted your experience and that you could not enjoy the impressive views of the surrounding region. All our excursions take place as planned regardless of the weather as the destinations visited offer a memorable adventure in all weathers. Our flexible cancellation policy allows to make changes to bookings up to 24 hours prior to the tour start, so weather conditions can be considered but we also understand that it often may be difficult to alter the plans if you are only in a destination for a short time. We are happy to read that you enjoyed visiting the Ice Palace, tunnels carved in ice through the glacier, and a typically Swiss meal. We hope that you had a safe onward journey and that you will have the opportunity to visit Switzerland again, maybe joining one of our tours with hopefully better weather conditions then. Kind regards Anja from Best of Switzerland Tours

Gorgeous vistas!

Rode a tour bus from Interlaken to the first of two trains up to the Jungfrau viewing platform. The ride up provided beautiful views in themselves. Gratefully, it was a sunny day and beautiful views were available of both the Jungfrau and Munch peaks. They were also interesting exhibits inside the glacier at the platform. A day well spent!

Top of Europe!!

My 25 year old daughter and I took this tour earlier this month while staying in Interlaken, and it is well worth it! I had previously checked in to doing this on our own, but found it was much easier - and less expensive - to do it as a tour. Cold at the very top, but it's about 13,000 ft altitude, with snow and glacier. Magnificent views! The ice palace was our favorite, so beautiful and impressive. Our guide made it easy to make it to all the spots and see everything. The only downside was that we only had an hour for lunch and shopping; we could've used and extra half hour or so, but other than that we had a fabulous time. Highly recommend!!

The perfect day
TrailBlazer594596
, Aug 2019
Our trip to the Jungfraujoch was fantastic. We had the perfect weather. The views are breathtaking. Our guide was knowledgeable and the tour was explained in Spanish, English and German. Some remarks I would make are the following: The meeting point in Interlaken was not very clear, the bathroom situation in Interlaken and on top was rather nasty even though on our day the crowed was not at its maximum. We understand that everything has to be brought up to the Jungfraujoch but for the price we paid we expected a bit more cleanliness. As a Swiss citizen, I wish we can do better.
