Tauck Exclusive – Reception at the Jungfraujoch Ice Palace

Day 8

Enjoy cocktails and more at the "Top of Europe" with an exclusive private reception at the Jungfraujoch's Ice Palace

As your mountain railway train ascends into the majestic Swiss Alps, you’ll arrive at Kleine Scheidegg at the foot of the Eiger, then board a cogwheel train for the scenic climb to Europe’s highest railway station, at the Jungfraujoch (perched at 11,333 feet above sea level). Here, at “the top of Europe,” you’ll find a restaurant, observatory, research station, a gallery of ice sculpture, and breathtaking views of the glacier-clad Bernese Alps, often called Switzerland’s “jewel in the crown.” And you'll enjoy a Tauck Exclusive... a private cocktail reception at the Ice Palace… taking time, of course, to savor the astounding views of the lofty peaks of the Eiger, Jungfrau and Mönch surrounding you!

Private observation car on the Glacier Express

Day 7

Take in spectacular Alpine vistas from our private observation car aboard the Glacier Express

Rail travel is one of the best ways to see the Alpine scenery up-close, and the Swiss trains are some of the best in the world. By far the most famous and memorable of these is the Glacier Express, which has connected the major Alpine resort cities of Zermatt and St. Moritz by rail since 1930. Far from being a high-speed train, however, the Glacier Express, due to the sometimes treacherous mountain terrain it has to negotiate, is actually one of the slowest express trains in the world. But you'll travel along silver streams, beneath massive peaks with crystal-blue glaciers and through lush valleys speckled with tiny villages, and the scenery is breathtaking everywhere you look... especially on Tauck's private panoramic observation car aboard this famous train!

Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa

Nights 7 and 8

Experience a unique Grand Hotel ambiance overlooking the Jungfrau in Interlaken

To step into a room or suite at the Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa is to sense instinctively that this is a place of well-being, where hospitality is genuine. Here, amidst the mountains of the Bernese Highlands overlooking the Jungfrau, you can benefit from all the amenities of a grand hotel while enjoying the ultimate in privacy, comfort and remarkable service.

I was expecting amazing mountain scenery and I was not disappointed. What surprised me though was the beauty of the many lakes we saw.
