Overview

Delve into the scenic splendor of the beautiful Bernese Oberland Alps on a full-day trip to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jungfraujoch mountain pass from Zurich. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, travel through the verdant beauty of Interlaken and then climb the steep side of the Kleine Scheidegg on a cogwheel train. Absorb the astounding Alpine environment from the vertiginous vantage point and enjoy fantastic views of iconic peaks like the Eiger North Face.
  • Alpine panorama day trip from Zurich to Kleine Scheidegg, halfway up the Jungfraujoch
  • Travel by coach through the Bernese Oberland’s fairy-tale scenery
  • Ride the cogwheel train to Kleine Scheidegg and enjoy free time to explore
  • Admire unbeatable views of the famous Eiger North Face
  • Perfect for those who want fantastic Alpine panoramas without going all the way up the mountain
Depart from a centrally located pickup point in Zurich and relax during the scenic journey through the Bernese Oberland in an air-conditioned coach. Admire sweeping mountain vistas as your knowledgeable guide offers fascinating commentary on the region’s rich history, and then arrive in the spectacular Jungfraujoch region.

Enjoy a brief interlude in Interlaken, a charming town located between two lakes, and then travel onward to Grindelwald to board a cogwheel train to Kleine Scheidegg, a spectacular mountain pass that affords stunning Alpine vistas. Capture photographs of the iconic triple peaks, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, as you climb halfway to the 11,750-foot (3,454-meter) to the summit.

From this manageable vantage point, appreciate breathtaking Alpine sprawls and inhale the pure mountain air. Spend several hours exploring the vertiginous area independently; perhaps follow a self-guided hiking trail to discover gorgeous flora and fauna, or indulge in some traditional Swiss cuisine at a rustic restaurant.

Reconvene with your guide at a prearranged time and take the descending train to Lauterbrunnen. Board your coach to Zurich and relax during the journey back to the original departure point.

Stop At:  
Interlaken
Relax on the scenic drive through the Bernese Oberland, touted as one of the most idyllic regions in Switzerland. After a 2-hour drive, arrive in Interlaken in the heart of the Jungfraujoch region. Break here for a quick stop in this famous town, situated between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz.
Duration: 50 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Pass By:  
Grindelwald Grund
Then, continue driving to the nearby village of Grindelwald. Board the cogwheel train here for a jaw-dropping ride to Kleine Scheidegg, a mountain pass located at the foot of Switzerland’s most impressive Alpine panorama.
Stop At:  
Kleine Scheidegg
Enjoy amazing views of the famous triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau as you ride halfway up the mountain. The top of the mountain reaches an astounding 11,750 feet (3,454 meters) above sea level. Ideal for those who are afraid of heights, this tour only takes you halfway up, to 6,762 feet (2,061 meters). But don’t worry, this won’t compromise the scenery; from Kleine Scheidegg, you’ll be treated to sweeping vistas of the Bernese Alps and unbeatable views of the famous Eiger North Face, featured in films such as The Eiger Sanction starring Clint Eastwood. You’ll have several hours of free time here to explore and take in the sensational Alpine environment. This area offers something for everyone: take a self-guided hike along the easily accessible Jungfrau Eiger Walk (several seasonal trails of moderate difficulty open late June to October); snap photos of the rock and ice masses of Eiger Glacier; or head to one of several local restaurants to enjoy some regional cuisine (own expense).

dear Sir/Mme,We enjoyded our trip Obernese Alps exept one thing which went to Yungfrau in a train station with nothing to do exept eating at the restaurant.We could suggest some ways to avoid this problem- 1-to split the excursion into two with different itineraries, 2-to establish the meeting point in Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald where there are more things to do.The least you can do is to specify this long pause in your advertising.Sicerely yours Florina Buton and Eugenia Wolf

The views are stunning! One thing to note is that you can do the trip yourself by buying the train tickets, but you miss the english/spanish guide. Another thing is that the majority of the group went to the top Jungfraujoch, which is double the price, with only me and 2 other tourists that stayed half way through the top at Kleine Schedegg. I could enjoy the 4hr wait by taking pictures and skiing, but not everyone will be happy with this since the options you have are limited, skiing, hiking or waiting.

I have to say this trip was beyond extraordinary. Our tour guides were highly knowledgeable and provided us with a lifetime experience. the great thing with this tour is that you actually have the option to change and do the top of the mountain but my friend and I decided to stay with this tour and I am hands down glad did I did. we were able to hike independently and experience the most amazing views. I would highly recommend this to anyone!!
