What To Expect
Travel onward to Grindelwald to climb aboard the new state-of-the-art gondola Eiger Express for a ride to Eiger Glacier Station. Continue your breath-taking journey to Europe’s highest point in a cogwheel train. Scour the scenery for the dramatic peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau and feel your adrenaline levels surge as you approach the 11,332-foot (3,454-meter) summit of the Jungfraujoch.
Marvel at the splintering peaks of the Aletsch Glacier and then ride the elevator to the Sphinx Observatory for incredible panoramas of the frozen Alpine wonderland below. Immerse yourself in the enchanting beauty of the Ice Palace, following your guide through the heart of the glacier, and opt to enjoy a fulfilling meal at one of the many restaurants on the mountaintop (own expense).
Capture final photographs of the incredible views and then descend the mountain on the awaiting train. Re-board your coach in Lauterbrunnen and relax during the drive back to Lucerne.

- "The only downside to the whole day is the shuttle bus ride there and back, if you get car sick easily this will be rough, as the trip goes over the alps and is very winding at higher speeds." See review
