My wife and I will visit Switzerland for the first time in early June, and will stay for 2 nights in the Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen area. We only have two days, so the rail passes do not seem like a good price or idea. Should we just buy point-to-point tickets to explore the area? Should we purchase tickets in advance, or wait in case it is rainy or cloudy? Are there any other discounts available? Thanks for all replies.

Hi jfollman and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

Depends on how much point-to-pointing you will do. You might look at the Jungfrau Travel Pass ( ngfrautravelpass) if you are just travelling in that area. But presumably you have to get to Interlaken in the first place and return somewhere after. Depending on how much other travellling in Switzerland you are doing a Travel Pass of some sort might be beneficial.

You should read “How to chose the best travel pass” ( ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).

Base your plans, especially mountain excursions on the weather.

Hi J,

If you don't have any sort of pass, you can get a reduced-price ticket to the Jungfraujoch - called the Good Morning Ticket. It is available between 5 May and 21 October 2018 and provides a discount of around 30%, but there are conditions attached:

  • The journey from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch is only possible at 8.00 and 8.30
  • The latest descent from Jungfraujoch is at 13.13

So if you were leaving from Interlaken Ost, you would need to be on one of the first two trains of the day, departing Interlaken Ost at 6:35 or 7:05, connecting with one of the above trains from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch.
