Jungfraujoch Railway

The Jungfraujoch is the highest railway station in Europe, at  3,463 metres (11,362 feet) above sea level. Travel to this unique destination is achieved not by one train, but rather a series of short connecting services on the Jungfrau railway.

Jungfrau Railway


There are two different routes up from Interlaken which travel up to different sides of the mountain. We recommend travelling via Lauterbrunnen in one direction and Grindelwald in the other; this will provide different scenery to enjoy. Watch out for the stunning Staubach Fall while looking down on Lauterbrunnen Valley! From both Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald there are cogwheel trains (one class of travel, free seating) which run regularly up to the tiny ski resort of Kleine Scheidegg. From there, it’s an easy connection to the final cogwheel train, which runs in a tunnel right through the heart of the Glacier.
