Journey to Jungfrau : Top of Europe

The Jungfrau Glacier is accessible by train and the train journey through picturesque natural landscapes and mountains is an unforgettable experience. The last Railway Station is Jungfraujoch which is at the highest level in Europe (Top of Europe).

From Interlaken Ost (East) station, train leaves for Lauterbrunnen station and reaches in 20 minutes. At Lauterbrunnen we changed the train for Kleine Scheidegg. This journey takes about 45 minutes through scenic natural landscapes. From Kleine Scheidegg train enters the tunnel through the Eiger shortly above Kleine Scheidegg. Before arriving at the Jungfraujoch, it stops for 5 minutes at two stations, Eigerwand and Eismeer, where passengers can see through the holes excavated from the mountain (view points created for the passenger before reaching Jungfraujoch). The journey from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch takes approximately 50 minutes including the above view point stops. The Junfraujoch Station is the highest Railway station of Europe.

Arriving at the Jungfraujoch terminus station, visitors gets confused and should follow signs through the rock tunnels to a couple of destinations. A tunnel leads outside to a flat, snow-covered open area, where one can walk around and look down to the surrounding areas as well as the mountains
