⚠️ Change due to conditions 19.07.23
As the conditions for climbing Jungfrau do get more difficult everyday, one mountain guide is no longer able to guide two people at the same time.


The Jungfrau is the highest mountain of the world-famous trilogy, comprised of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. In 1811, this became the first 4000m peak to be climbed in the Swiss Alps, and now, over 200 years later, we invite you to join us on an safe, guided, and unforgettable journey to the summit.
