We will be driving from Zurich (15 Oct), spend a night at Lucern before arriving at Interlaken (16 Oct). We would like to visit Jungfraujoch on the next day (17 or 18 Oct). Would you recommend us to stay at Interlaken or Lauterbrunnen for the night before going up to Jungfraujoch?

Also, as we will be driving,is it possible for us to drive to Kleine Scheidegg and then take the train up to Jungfraujoch? Or would you say leaving the car at Interlaken or Lauterbrunnen and then take the train up would be easier?

Regarding the Rail Pass, as we will be driving in Switzerland most of the time, what kind of Rail Pass should we get would be the most economic way for us to visit Jungfraujoch?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi alisan,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald are all fine for a trip to Jungfraujoch if you have a car. Most of the area is car free. You can't drive to Kleine Scheidegg, but the towns I mentioned can be reached. The advantage of Interlaken is that you can easily make a round trip via Grindelwald - Jungfraujoch - Lauterbrunnen so you'll see the whole area. The other two towns are in the mountains and more scenic.

The above links will get you lots of additional information, including hotel tips. As for the rail pass: most drivers pick the Swiss Half Fare Card. You'll save 50% on mountain excursions. You can print the card at home: myswissalps.com/ swisshalffarecard/ price.
