Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe

Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe

One of my most memorable journeys will definitely include this roof top of Europe. It was an unforgettable experience. The magnificent sight of the ice covered snow-cliffs attract millions of tourists throughout the year.

The Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier in the Alps can be seen from the Jungfraujoch. It is also Europe’s highest train station. The Alpine region of Switzerland which is popularly known as the Swiss Alps includes most of the highest mountains of the Alps. The Jungfraujoch is a ‘must see’ when you are in Switzerland.

Memories of a lifetime

How to get there:

There are two routes to get there from Interlaken Ost, via Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald. To get the most stunning views of the Alpine area, I would recommend to take two different routes while going up and coming down. At least that’s what we did. Actually one can board the train from any station along that route, but most travelers start their journey from Interlaken. It’s not a cheap trip, but every penny is worth it.

And most definitely don’t miss the opportunity to get down in both these stations (Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald) and wander around the scenic villages. It’s heaven.
