Greetings all,
On my 4 days trip in Interlaken, i would spend one day for Trümmelbach waterfalls and Jungfraujoch.
I would take a train from Interlaken west to Jungfraujoch station, then from there how will reach to Top of Europe,
Is it via cog wheel train ??

then where are these places are :
>> Aletsch Glacier
>> Sphinx hall
>> ICE Palace

How do i reach these above mentioned places??

One more important quesiton : what would be the temperature in the Snow mountain in Summer (at the end of this month), should i take winter cloths too ??

Thanks
Annika

Hi Ameen. Yes, that's a cogwheel train. You'll find directions to the Glacier, the Sphinx and the Ice Palace once you arrive at the train station at the top. They're all close to the station, requiring just a few minutes of walking. A warm jacket, solid shoes and sunglasses are important. Even in late August temperatures may be around freezing point.

Thanks Annika,
just one precision,I found the stations are like :
Interlaken West --> Interlaken Ost --> Lauterbrunnen --> Kleine Scheidegg -->Jungfraujoch

The question is :
The Jungfraujoch station itself a Top of Europe station ?? or from there, do i have to take any other train to reach Top of Europe ?

regards

"Top of Europe" is just another (tourist) name for the Jungfraujoch. So that's the final destination of the train.
