It is my understanding there is an unmanned train station in Alpiglen, Switzerland. For the life of me I can not determine how to obtain a timetable for this stop. I will be staying at the Berghaus Alpiglen for two nights in September and could use some assistance in finding it's connections and timetable.

Raileurope.com doesn't acknowledge this as a possible stop/station.

Thank you,

Hello,

It happened with me while coming back from chocolate factory.. We didn't know if the train we were waiting for will stop on that station.. actually if you know the route of the train you looking for and this station is on the way usually the normal train stop.

I am not giving you an assured answer here but this is a logic based on my experience.

Do inquire more if you like.

Have a nice trip.

Hi.

If you go to www.sbb.ch/en you can look up the timetable for Alpiglen. Trains run from Grindelwald every half hour and arrive at 7 minutes past the hour and half hour. This is the train to Kleine Scheidegg.

Hi Julie,

>> For the life of me I can not determine how to obtain a timetable for this stop. I will be staying at the Berghaus Alpiglen for two nights in September and could use some assistance in finding it's connections and timetable.

Alan has given you the link to the SBB timetable. I have also attached a PDF timetable for the Grindelwald-Alpiglen sector that you might find handy.

Alpiglen station is "Stop on request" ("Halt auf Verlangen" in German). You will need to press a button on the train if you want it to stop there. There might also be a button on the platform to push when you want to board the train.

Apparently the "Käseschnitte" at Alpiglen is famous, so if you like cheese dishes, you might like to try it!

Thanks , this is exactly what I was looking for and couldn't track it down. I've now saved the link to my desktop and ipad.

Thank you, I've attached the link to my itinerary and saved it to my desk top. It is very helpful to have. I knew I was going push the Halt auf Verlangen button but this helps to confirm my understanding.

I will be based in Alpiglen for two nights so no doubt I'll give "Käseschnitte" a try because yes, I am a cheese lover. Again, my thanks.
