Accessible Jungfraujoch Glacier and Top of Europe Tour

As the train makes its way through the winding picturesque landscape, you’ll enjoy a relaxing tour viewing waterfalls, mountain villages, forests and meadows. The Accessible Jungfraujoch Glacier and Top of Europe Tour is a unique way of exploring this breathtaking area outside Interlaken!

Your day will begin by meeting your privatelocal tour guide at the Interlaken Ost train station. From here, the guide will escort you onboard the accessible train en-route to “Kleine Scheidegg”,a mountain pass at an elevation of 2,061 meters, situated below and between the Eiger and Lauberhorn peaks in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. This breathtaking mountain pass is the watershed between the two Lütschinen valleys. Have your camera ready for some spectacular photo opportunities!

Next, you will continue to “Jungfraujoch” a notable saddle in the Bernesealps, connecting the two four thousand meter peaks Jungfrau and Mönch. Jungfraujoch sets at an elevation of 3,466 meter above sea level! While experiencing this impressive location, you’ll feel icy air streams across your face and admire breathtaking views throughout – including the Aletsch glacier, bordered by four thousand-meter peaks. Under the peaks of Jungfraujoch, you’ll find the fascinating Ice Palace. Mountain guides created the aisles and halls in the 1930’s, with picks and saws in the middles of the Jungfraufirn.

After a full day of exploring the Swiss Alps firsthand, your guide will safely escort you back to the Interlaken train station where your wheelchair friendly tour will end.

Accessibility Description:

I gave the Accessible Jungfraujoch Glacier and Top of Europe Tour a 5 Star Sage Accessibility Rating which is our highest accessibility rating. It received this rating because your guide will utilize elevators, ramps, and a wheelchair lift to lead you on a step-free route. It also involves short walking/rolling distances over flat, smooth terrain.

The tour route involves two trains. Some of the stations have flat access (shown below on the left). Other stations require staff putting out a ramp (shown below on the right), and your tour guide will be sure that it is done promptly for you.

At the Top of Europe, your tour guide will lead you on a step-free route that includes elevators and a wheelchair lift. Your guide will make sure that staff is available to operate the wheelchair lift so you won’t need to wait a long time.

Step-free routes will be used through the ice tunnel and to view the ice sculptures. Accessible bathrooms are available if you need them.

If you are looking for another accessible tour with short walking/rolling distances and entirely different scenery,  you may be interested in the  Mürren and Schilthorn Mountain Peak Accessible Gondola Tour.
