Hi Saru,

I would wait until the morning of each day and check the weather forecast. If it looks like it will be ok then go up. If everyday looks poor you might not want to spend the money to go up on any day.

If the only reason you are coming here is to visit Jungfraujoch and the weather looks bad all the days you will be in Switzerland I suppose that is an option. Assuming you can cancel your booked plans and have time to come again later.

You may luck out and the weather changes or you may find the trip is worth it even in poor weather though. I can't tell you whether the trip should be cancelled or not though.

Hi Saru,

They are both wonderful. I would just pick the one that fits your plans based on the departure time and duration. Apart from that you can check the below pages to see if you like one more than the other:

Thank you Arno.. we enjoyed cruise.

Also todays climate in Jungfrau was awesome.. spent full day top.

Tomorrow planning to go Glacier 3000 peak walk from Interlaken by first train in the morn. I assume this suspense bridge is free.

1.In google i saw, col-du-pillon to glacier 3000 is via cable car. How do i go to suspense bridge from there. Please guide.

2.Also my concern here is return flight to UK is from Geneva at 9pm. Will we reach before time.

Cheers, Saru

Just went to Jungfrau yesterday. Realize that summer is over. Jungfrau was great but be aware that the clouds go in and out all day. Check webcams and weather reports.

Hi Saru,

1. I realize my answer is too late, but I'm sure you've found your way to the bridge, right? I hope it was open as it is weather dependent.

2. You can check the timetable to see which train you need to take to Geneva airport.
