Hi- my wife and I will be at Lucerne in Mid september and wish to use the opportunity to go to Jungfraujoch - Interlaken for a day.

Please suggest the best route to travel there - time frame suggested for the visit considering that travel from Lucerne will take about 2 hours each way.

I will be having a swiss pass for my travel - does this cover the entire journey or there are seperate charges applicable

Where do I buy the extra tickets from??

Good morning, I would suggest using your swiss pass to get you to lauterbrunnen or wengen and than purchase Jungfrau tkt. This will save u some money. You will need to travel from Interlaken Ost station. It is an awesome excursion, Enjoy.

Hi
Take the train on platform 12 at 55 minutes past each hour. Sit on the right side facing the front of the train for the best views. In Interlaken Ost you will arrive in 2 hours at 55 minutes past the hour. Go to Platform 2B, the train for Grindelwald leaves at 5 minutes past the hour (10 minutes connection). In Grindelwald go to the ticket office and show your pass for a 25% discount on the train to Kleine Scheidegg and on to Jungfraujoch. Tell the ticket agent you want to return to Wengen. It will be an expensive trip so if the weather is not good only go to Kleine Scheidegg. On the return take the train from Kleine Scheidegg down to Wengen and on to Lauterbrunnen. Your Swiss Pass is good from Wengen to Lauterbrunen and on to Interlaken. A nice side trip is to go across the street in Lauterbrunen and take the postal bus to the Schilthorn cable car. Take the cable car up to Murren and walk through the town to the BLM station (15 min). Take the one car BLM train to Grustchalp and then the cable car back down to Lauterbrunnen. This side trip will not cost you anything wih the Swiss Pass.

Hi vibroman421. The map we link to at the Swiss Pass page might help in other questions you may have about the exact area of validity. Purchase options can be found here as well.

Dear Dick,

Since you have travelled these routes- Is there any place which rents out snow foot wear/ jackets etc for few hours on raching Jungfrau?

Hi vibroman. You won't need special snow gear when getting up at the Jungfraujoch in September. Solid shoes, warm sweaters and jackets and sun glasses will do in most cases. You could take a look at the rental products offered by Intersport in Interlaken or Lauterbrunnen though.
