Hi Saruu and welcome to MySwissAlps!

  1. You can use the timetable here to search for train connections. It will take about 4 hours with 3 or 4 train changes.
    The Swiss Travel Pass is valid for at least 3 days (no 2 day passes).
  2. It depends on what you want to see and do in Interlaken and Jungfraujoch. If you just want to see the city and then go up to Jungfraujoch yes 2 days is sufficient - you could easily spend a week or two there depending on what you want to do. I would stay at least 2 nights if not 3 if you can though
  3. In Interlaken? We have a list of hotels here. I would also look at Lauterbrunnen as it is closer to Jungfraujoch and has good train connections around the area.
  4. If you start early enough on Sunday morning yes you can be down at Jungfraujoch by 1 or 2pm.
  5. I often suggest not buying tickets ahead as the weather may be poor and you can't see much at the top. For you however, as you have only Sunday morning to go, may want to reserve a seat. I would wait until Saturday to check the weather first.
  6. Yes, but some routes required you to still buy a ticket (at a discount). Such as Jungfraujoch where the trip is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass until Grindelwald or Wengen and then you must buy a ticket (at 25% off).
