I am pulling my hair out trying to understand what travel pass covers ALL of the Jungfrau region. We have a two week trip planned for July 7th which will start in Zurich (2 nights) Lucerne (2 nights) Wengen (5 nights) Zermatt (3 nights) and Geneva (3 nights.) Based on this itinerary I bought a Swiss Travel Pass for 14 days but this apparently does not cover the Jungfrau region. We plan to extensively explore the area and visit Top of Europe, Schilthorn etc. What pass would be best suited for us and do we get any type of discount due to the Swiss Travel Pass? Is it best to buy online or at a train station?

Hi Jpehrson,

If you have a Swiss Travel Pass (STP), you are pretty much covered. The Jungfrau Travel Pass (JTP) is a great addition to the STP if you plan to do a lot of mountain excursions in the Jungfrau region as the STP only provides up to 50% discount on mountain transportation such as cable cars, gondolas and mountain railways. Whereas the JTP includes almost everything so you don't need to buy additional tickets.

For example: If your plans in the Jungfrau region are limited to boat trips on Lake Brienz and Lake Thun and visiting surrounding villages such Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen and Mürren, the Swiss Travel Pass is sufficient as these destinations are accessible by public transport (free with STP). On the other hand, if you are planning trips to Männlichen, Grindelwald First, Harder Kulm and Schynige Platte for instance, then getting the JTP might be practical. You can check out the JTP validity map here: www.myswissalps.com/jungfrautravelpass/validity

The best way to see if the JTP will benefit you is to list down your daily itinerary in detail, then compare the cost as detailed here: www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass

If you have a Swiss Travel Pass, you can purchase the Jungfrau Travel Pass at a reduced price.

You can purchase the Jungfrau Travel Pass online or directly from the train station in Interlaken (or any station in the Jungfrau region).

Regards,

Anna

Anna,

What is the difference with the Top of Europe pass versus the Jungfrau Travel Pass?

Hi again,

The main difference between Top of Europe Pass (TOEP) and the Jungfrau Travel Pass (JTP) is:

TOEP includes a free trip to Jungfraujoch but not boat trips on Lake Brienz and Lake Thun. You can check the validity area here: www.jungfrau.ch/en-gb/top-of-europe-pass/

JTP provides discounted trip to Jungfraujoch and include free boat trips on Lake Brienz and Lake Thun. You can check the validity map here: www.myswissalps.com/jungfrautravelpass/validity

Regards,

Anna

Anna,

Thanks for the clarification! Since I already have the STP the TOEP is the right one for me. Do I get a discount on this since I have a STP and where do I purchase this?

Thanks again.

Hi Jpehrson,

Unfortunately, the Swiss Travel Pass does not provide any reduction to purchase the Top of Europe Pass.

You can refer to the discussion here: www.myswissalps.com/forum/topic/railpass-in-combination-with-top-of-europe-pass
