In short, I had an experience of a lifetime at Jungfraujoch. It was about -4 Degrees Celcius when I visited. The Sphinx observatory actually makes you feel as if you are at the top of Europe. However, the most memorable part of Jungfraujoch for me...More

A must ! Even the ticket price is high, you won't regret it. The views are excellent. There are many attraction points up there. The ice tunnel is cool.

You go up the Jungfraujoch for the view and it doesn't disappoint. It's the sort of view that you can't drag yourself away from - the surrounding majestic peaks (not that these are much higher than you are), the glacier sweeping away below, the slopes...More

Photo opportunities galore but get there early to avoid the crowds! Don't forget a jacket - although you're not outside for long, it can be rather chilly even in mid-summer.
