Hi

I am planning a day trip to Jungfraujoch from Interlaken. I have read through the suggested routes on your website and am following the same. I have a STP and will be taken the trains via Lauterbrunnen while going and will return vis Grinwald. I wanted to ask the following additional questions

1. Once you reach Jungfraujoch, what is there to do? How much time can you seen there? Are there restaurants etc there? I am travelling with Kids (5 and 8 years) so do i need to carry food with me?

2. Does the package tour (with guide) offer any additional benefit? Or is it better for me to do the trip by myself since i already have a STP. DO i get access to all the places to visit and see on Jungfraujoch even if i do not take a guided tour?

Thanks

Prem

Hi Prem,

1. Please find all information here: myswissalps.com/ jungfraujoch.

2. Both options are fine. It's a matter of personal preferences. Some people like the additional information they get from a tour guide and also prefer to leave the preparations to a tour operator. Others prefer to pick their own departure time and travel pace. Please find options through myswissalps.com/ jungfraujoch/ packages.

Have fun!

My advise, do the Jungfrau on your own. It is a easy tour and you can plan your day yourself.

The traintrip is also easy. From Interlaken with the BOB train (Yellow/blue) to Lauterbrunnen. Take the front part of the train, the other part of the train go to Grindelwald.

Take at Lauterbrunnen the WAB train (green Yellow) on the oppositie platform to Wengen and Kleine Scheidegg. Take at Kleine Scheidegg the JB train (red colour) to Jungfraujoch. This train leaves at Kleine Scheidegg on the other site of the station building. In direction of traveling, on your right site.

The Jungfrau train is also stopping on Eigernordwand and Eismeer, to see the view. The train is waiting for you. When it is nice weather on Jungfraujoch, walk to Mönchhutte. The kids like to play in the snow. You can spend between 4 to 6 hours on Jungfrau to see everything.

Take some foot and drinks with you, on Jungfrau everything cost a lot of money.

--> Go only to Jungfrau by very, very nice weather and a blue sky !

Greetings from the Netherlands, Brahms

Thank you Arno and Brahms for your advice - I am also doing the same trip in August so found this article very useful - especially the tip about the BOB train.

When you are in the wrong part of the BOB-train, no panic.

It is also possible go to Grindelwald > Kleine Scheidegg > Jungfraujoch.
