thanks

Or once in KS we could take connecting train up to Jungfraujoch, assuming weather is fine? I imagine we will have plenty of time that day if we start out early as the walk from Mannlichen to KS is not far?

Hi Robby - yes, you could do that.

The length of the hike is described in the link that Kim gave you at the beginning of her comments.

By the way, that hike is a lot better in the direction from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg, as we have described it. Seeing the Eiger grow over you has quite an impact.

quick question on the rail pass options.

As we only have two full days our itinerary is fairly small. Even accounting for all the little train and cablecar journeys we would do throughout the day it still looks like it is cheaper to pay full fair rather than buy a Half Fare Pass. Does that sound right? I am basing this on a cost 120 CHF per person for the pass.

Only if we opt to do the Jungfrau from Kleine Scheidegg does it make it worthwhile to buy a pass but we wouldn't know if we will do that until the day we arrive (due to checking weather).

Makes sense to me, although I generally defer questions on rail passes to the moderators, who keep track of all the details. Of course, you wion't have the benefit of the pass until you make that decision.

Tricky indeed!

I'd still wait on the weather - perhaps the weather is good on the morning and you can take advantage of the Good Morning ticket: https://www.jungfrau.c h/shop/en/good-morning-ticket-jungfraujoch/
