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.

Great views and some good ski runs. My favourite was piste 11. Queue for gondolas was a nightmare. It took us 3 hours to get back into town after watching the sunset. Not recommended with ski boots... more »
Quite a touristy place with great views. Takes about 3 hours up and down.
One of the amazing places to visit in Switzerland! A must do In the list the climate and view is amazing if you love winter. Went in the month of Nov and had a amazing time. Good restaurants available on the top and even can get Indian food. Sovereign shopping is possible but the cost is high! A very well maintained place at the altitude which is on top of the Europe.
