the gateway to a glacial wonderland

Welcome to Jungfraujoch

Chris Zimmermann

In summer, visitors with the right footwear can take a 45-minute mountain shoe hike in the thin air from the eastern glacier plateau to the Mönchsjoch.



What will I see?

You will see the majestic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau summits, together with close-up views of the longest glacial flow. The Jungfrau railway travels from the heart of the mountains to Europe’s highest lying mountain station at 3454 meter altitude.
From Kleine Scheidegg, the cog-wheel railway travels year-round through the tunnel and over the steep climb up to the Jungfraujoch.The tunnel from the Eiger Glacier station, built between 1896 and 1912, is seven kilometres long. Two stops in the tunnel permit spectacular views of the Eiger north wall and surrounding glacier world.
