Hie,

I want to travel from Interlaken OST to Jungfraujoch on 28.05.16 with my family of 4 - 2 adults + 2 children (12 & 6 years). I am holding Swiss Pass for 2nd Class.

As per my understanding, I have made the following route and the cost :

FROM TO RETURN FARE

Interlaken OST Lauterbrunnen Free on my Swiss Pass

Lauterbrunnen Kleine Scheidegg 29.80 for Adults, 14.90 for Kids = 89.40

Kleine Scheidegg Jungfraujoch 62.00 for Adults, 31.00 for Kids = 186.00

The above fares are without the discount of 25% which I think I am entitled to while holding the Swiss pass. Please confirm if my details are correct and guide on how to avail the discount.

Welcome Vinay!

I'll assume you have a Swiss Travel Pass as a Swiss Pass is not for tourists. The Swiss Travel Pass offers a 25% discount from Wengen and Grindelwald. The rest of the trip is free. The entire trip is free for your children, assuming you've ordered along the Swiss Family Card. A discounted ticket for adults (Wengen - Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald) cost about CHF 132.

Yes you can.... You can travel via 3 possible routes :

1 (a). Interlaken OST to Grindelwald (free).

1 (b) Round trip : Gridelwald - Jungfrau (via Klein Scheidegg) - Grindelwald

Cost (w/o discount) : CHF 184

Cost (w/ discount) : CHF 138

Time taken : 1 h 35 m each way.

2 (a). Interlaken OST to Lauterbrunnen (free till Wengen which is after Launterbrunnen but you need to change at Lauterbrunnen and pay only from Wengen to the top)

2 (b) Round trip : Wengen - Jungfrau (via Klein Scheidegg) - Wengen

Cost (w/o discount) : CHF 170

Cost (w/ discount) : CHF 128

Time taken : 1 h 28 m each way

3 (a) Interlaken OST to either of above two places and return via the other way

3 (b) Gridelwald - Jungfrau (via Klein Scheidegg) - Wengen OR the reverse

The cost for this option is between 1 (b) and 2 (b) above. About CHF 10 more than 2 (b). Whichever route you want to travel, you can tell the same at the ticketing counter in Interlaken OST when purchasing your discounted tickets. For further details you can check on this official site (shop.jungfrau.ch/en/ti ckets/bergbahn). This site has a host of other options along with weather details at the Jungfrau, skiing options or other activities etc.

Children travel for free with your Swiss Travel Pass but make sure you buy / have bought the Family Card also along with your Swiss Travel Pass.

You can go to any staffed train station, show your Swiss Travel Pass, explain your plans, and they will sell you the discounted ticket.

Have fun!

Since discounted prices are same whether purchased online or at station, its better to buy at station to avoid any problems or wrong bookings, though during May-June, expect to have a queue at stations.

Also note that the prices I mentioned above are the ticket prices and does not include reservation charges. The Jungfrau site showed all reservations as sold out, so you are not guaranteed a seat. If you get one good for you else need to stand :-)

Hey,

Just a small clarification - The prices mentioned by you are for per person ? Or is it for the Full Family ?
