Hi

Can you pls adv which is a better pass to purchase if I were to stay come in via basel to Berne and leave berne to Geneva airport and travel to Jungfrau for a day trip? My trip is for 4 nights . A half card or a swiss pass would be suitable? Can you pls suggest.

Thank you.

Hi Deepak, welcome to MySwissAlps!

If you don't plan to make many long and expensive day trips, apart from your trip up to the Jungfraujoch, a Swiss Half Fare Card will probably be the cheapest solution. Here's how to calculate which pass is best for your specific itinerary.

Thank you Annika for your reply.

I see that i can buy a ticket from Interlaken to Jungfrau from the sbb website.

Does it mean the ticket is upto the top of Jungfrau?

Does a Swiss Pass allows you free to reach the top of Jungfrau?

Pls adv.

Thank you.

Hi Deepak,

There are no trains to the top of the Jungfrau, but to the Jungfraujoch, which is a saddle between two mountains. You don't need to buy tickets in advance. With a Swiss Travel Pass (it's no longer called Swiss Pass, see here) you will get free traveling to Wengen or Grindelwald, so you don't need tickets for that part. You will get a 25% discount on tickets for the remaining leg, which can be purchased at any staffed station (Bern, Interlaken, etc.). A Swiss Half Fare Card provides 50% off the whole trip.

You can click to "Where it's valid" on the Swiss Travel Pass page or Swiss Half Fare Card page for further details.

Could you pls suggest the best route to go from Interlaken to Jungfrau and return back so that I get the best scenic views as there are many routes to go to Jungfrau.

Thank you.
