Tickets to the Jungfraujoch

Pay less for your ticket

Tickets to the Jungfraujoch are available at any Swiss rail station. Make sure you have a rail pass as the tickets are quite expensive without a pass.

If you don't have a pass you can book a guided tour. If you prefer to go independently you can save some money with the Good Morning Ticket: a discounted fare if you travel early in the morning. This option is only available in Summer, and is more expensive than traveling with a rail pass.

Is it worth the money?

Many people wonder if the price is worth it. We think it is. The trip to the Jungfraujoch and the experience at the top are truly unique. It's a once in a lifetime experience you should not miss.

Booking in advance

  • Only buy the tickets once you are sure the weather is clear enough to enjoy the view from the Jungfraujoch. It does not make sense to travel up there if you end up in the clouds. If you buy tickets well in advance, make sure the date is flexible.
  • Tickets can sell out. This usually happens in July and August when many people want to go up on the same day and maximum capacity is reached. It's exceptional, but not unheard of. Once your ticket is dated, you are guaranteed you can access the trains. A seat is not guaranteed but on most days it won't be a problem to find a seat.
  • There's an option to buy seat reservations for the section from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch. This is not recommended in order to be flexible, but you can consider this if a crowded day is expected.
