Description

Known colloquially as the "Top of Europe," this is the highest train station in all of Europe. From the Jungfraujoch, visitors will experience breathtaking views: on one side the Mittelland plateau, and on the other the Aletsch glacier, all the while being surrounded by 4,000m peaks.

You can book a Jungfraujoch here.

Short Walk: The Jungfrau rail line has accessed this wonder since 1912. Unless you're willing to hike the Eiger itself, I'd recommend taking the train.

Family Friendly: An amazing effort to reward ratio; kids will love the train and the views at the top.

Took the train up, was very touristy but cool to see the glaciers up close. We then left in a hurry to get away from crowds and hiked the Eiger trail

A must do, yet expensive if you don't have a half fare ticket or walk all the way to Kleine Scheidegg from Grindelwald. Go to ice field if you can.
