An excursion to Europe’s highest railway station is an absolute highlight of your stay in the Holiday Region Interlaken. Delve into the fascinating world of snow, ice and glaciers on the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. Admire the spectacular mountain panorama on the train ride from Interlaken Ost, which takes a little less two hours. The trip is particularly spectacular during the winter months. The railway line runs along the foot of the renowned Three Peaks – the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau – and through the natural idyll of the Jungfrau Region. The spectacular midway stop at Eismeer station will surprise you with its stunning views through a viewing window set into the rockface. Take a souvenir photo between blue-tinged blocks of ice. A wide variety of experiences await you when you reach the Jungfraujoch.
New: the new Eiger Express tricable gondola will take you from Grindelwald to the Eiger Glacier station in just 15 minutes. With a direct transfer option, you will be on the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe and on the slopes 47 minutes faster than before.
If you choose to come by car, you canpark near the rail stations of Interlaken Ost, Grindelwald Terminal or Lauterbrunnen. In order to do a round trip (up viaLauterbrunnen and down via Grindelwald or vice versa), parking in Interlaken Ost is best.
The tour through the magical frosty ice palace is a real highlight. As you explore, you’ll discover niches housing a variety of art works by extremely dextrous ice artists. Eagles, penguins and bears look as if they had just turned to ice. The ice corridor was created by mountain guides with pickaxes and saws in the 1930s. Get ready to be enchanted by the magical corridors and halls.
The Sphinx Hall and the Ice Palace are connected by a 250 m long corridor. A chill runs down your back when you walk into the corridor, which is not solely due to the chilly temperatures. Thirty commemorative plaques bear witness to the sacrifices made by the miners during the construction of the railway to the Jungfraujoch. Modern travelators convey you in comfort past an impressive picture gallery. These pictures show you the how the Jungfrau Railway began. Emotional musical sounds accompany you as you wander through the experience. At the end of the corridor, you will discover radiant edelweisses and a huge snow globe – perfect for another souvenir photo.
Once you have adjusted to the mountain air in the interior of the Jungfraujoch, you’ll be tempted to engage in adventures and experiences outside in the snow. Try out from mid-May to mid-October various winter sports in a compact space in the Snow Fun Park. Turn pirouettes while snowtubing, go skiing or snowboarding, go sledging on a Balancer or whizz through the air on the Flying Fox rope slide. All the necessary equipment can be hired on the spot. Be sure to wear warm clothing; the temperatures can be freezing whatever the time of year, although spring can make a brief appearance in the hottest months of the year, with temperatures on the Jungfraujoch often considerably above zero in midsummer.
Option 1: trains only via Lauterbrunnen: Interlaken-Lauterbrunnen-Kleine Scheidegg-Jungfraujoch (2h06)
If you choose to travel via Lauterbrunnen, you can best sit on the right of the train when departing from Interlaken Ost. You’ll have a slightly better view that way.After changing trains in Lauterbrunnen, you’ll travel up to the scenic mountain village of Wengen and then onto Kleine Scheidegg. Again, the best views from the train are on the right. You’ll look down on the stunning Lauterbrunnen valley with its Staubbach Fall and up to the Jungfrau and other snow-capped mountains.At Kleine Scheidegg, you’ll change trains for the last leg to Jungfraujoch. The majority of this section is in a tunnel, but still it’s impressive if you just think about it: a tunnel at an altitude of 3,000 m right through the rocks of the Eiger.The train passes several stations along the route. One of them is Eigergletscher, where the Eiger Express cable cars from Grindelwald Terminal arrive and where you’ll have to change trains once more. This train will make another short stop at the station of Eismeer. You can get off the train for a few minutes to enjoy the view of eternal snow and ice through the panoramic windows.
If you travel from Interlaken to Grindelwald, you can best sit on the right for the best view.In Grindelwald, you’ll change to the train to Kleine Scheidegg. You can either sit on the left for an impressive view of the Eiger North face, or on the right for a wider view across the valley of Grindelwald. At Kleine Scheidegg, you’ll change trains for last section through the tunnel in the Eiger (please see the description under Option 1).
You’ll first travel from Interlaken Ost to the train station Terminal, which is close to the village of Grindelwald. The gondolas to Männlichen depart from Grindelwald Terminal as well.Here you’ll board the 26-seater cabins of the Eiger Express that take you up to the station of Eigergletscher in 15 minutes, with breathtaking views of the famous Eiger North face. At Eigergletscher, you’ll board a cogwheel train up to Jungfraujoch through a tunnel in the Eiger (please see the description onder Option 1). This is the quickest route, as the Eiger Express bypasses the cogwheel trains that travel via Kleine Scheidegg.
