Escorted Rail Tours to Jungfraujoch

The highest railway station in Europe

The route from Interlaken to Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station, actually comprises three different railways. The first leg from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen is on the Bernese Oberland Railway. This narrow-gauge line was opened to the public in 1890, and it is 12 miles in length. Over the course of the route, the line climbs 1,532 feet (467 metres) above sea level.

The line was electrified in 1914, and some of these locomotives survive for occasional use on special trains today. However, nowadays services are mostly run by specially-designed trains with low floors and large windows, built to maximise both comfort and the views of the beautiful Alpine scenery in the area. At Lauterbrunnen, the Wengernalp Railway runs to Kleine Scheidegg. Like the Bernese Oberland Railway, this is also a narrow-gauge line, and was opened for traffic in 1893.
