Hi,

My girlfriend and I will visit Jungfraujoch on 26th March 2016, Saturday. We will depart from Interlaken OST to Jungfraujoch.

We plan to visit the following attractions in Jungfraujoch:

1) Sphinx Observation

2) Ice Palace

3) Alpine Sensation

4) Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven

Here are our questions:

1) How much time would be needed to explore four attractions above in Jungfraujoch?

2) I have found a website describing Jungfraujoch attractions:

www.jungfrau.ch/en/tou rism/news-events/100-years-of-jungfrau-railway/alpine-sensation/

I have attached a diagram from that website.

Can anyone help to interpret that diagram?

3) Where is the Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven attraction in Jungfraujoch? Is it the same shop shown in the Lindt website: www.lindt.ch/en/store-locator/details-en/s/lindt-chocolate-shop-jungfraujoch-944/?no_cache=1&cHash=5fdbc c9a31215639cdde47ded76 ef8d9?

4)I know the restaurants in Jungfraujoch can be expensive. Is there any alternative to find a meal for lunch?

5) Are the tickets to those attractions above in Jungfraujoch free of charge?

Thank you

Hi ericjoe,

I'm not sure if you've seen our page yet, but you'll find a lot of information there: myswissalps.com/ jungfraujoch.

I think the diagram says you need at least an hour for the attractions and another hour if you want to do snow activities too. I would say you need two hours even without the snow activities if you want to take your time (recommended anyway at that altitude) and have lunch too. You don't need tickets, except for the snow activities.

There's a self service restaurant. The souvenir shops may sell snacks, but I don't know if they qualify as a proper lunch. You can bring food yourself if you wish.

I haven't been up there since Lindt opened but it should be easy to find. There are signs to find the way. I'm sure they want you to find their shop :-)

Have fun!

If you have 2 hours more time, make a walk from Jungfraujoch to the Mönchsjochhütte. The walk to the hut takes one hour include fotoshots and the walk back takes 30 minutes. It is an easy going way. You should have good shoes, even when you see there people with sneaker with textil material. Have a look here:

Mönchsjochhütte, English:

German ( let it translate by google translator:

It is an amazing, easy walk and you see down to the biggest glacier of Europe. On the hut you can get a very good lunch!!! Don't forget your camera!

Hello all!

I was following the thread and had a question of my own. I'm going to be in Switzerland and was planning to go to Jungfraujoch as well, but in mid-late April instead of the end of March. I know that April is the slow season and so I was wondering if you know if the activities mentioned above would still be available--i.e. the hike to the Monk yoke hut and the snow fun park?

Thank you!
