On April 16th 2015 I will travel to Lauterbrunnen, with my father and his brother (78 and 63 years). We will fly to Basel and we have a rental car to travel to Camping Jungfrau in Lauterbrunnen. We will stay in a chalet on the campingsite.

We like to take the train to Jungfraujoch, but I see a lot of different prices, can someone please help me with the right information?

thank you!Majoes

Hi Majoes,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! The link to prices can be found on myswissalps.com/jungfraujoch/tickets. A standard return ticket to Jungfraujoch is CHF 183.60. With Swiss Half Fare Cards, you will get a 50% discount on this ticket, and most other cable cars, trains and boats.

Hi Annika,

From the Swiss travel agency (verkeersburo) I heard that the half Fare Card only provides 25 % discount on the Jungfraujoch bahn. That is what i meant about different information. I don't know what or who to believe.

For us it is necessary to know because I want to purchase it before we go.

We only have 4 days so I want to prepare well. If the card is 98 € and it's only 25 % discount on the Jungfraubahn, it is not worthwile.

I hope that you can help me out with your experience.

thanks!

Hi majoes,

It's the Swiss Travel Pass and Swiss Travel Pass Flex that provide a 25% discount to Jungfraujoch from Grindelwald or Wengen, and free traveling until either of these towns. The Swiss Half Fare Card provides a 50% discount on the whole trip. You can download the map to verify. Indeed the card costs € 98 via www.acprail.com, or CHF 120 (€ 112) if you wait with your purchase until you're in Switzerland.

I just noticed you're from the Netherlands. You're welcome to post to the Dutch forum rather than here in the English forum!
