We are going to get Jungfrau regional passes for a 7 day trip to Interlaken this summer and are trying to decide whether it is worth getting the 5 day one with boats included. Do the children (12, 10 and 3) go free on the boats too with the 5 day pass or will we have to pay for them?

Do you mean the Jungfrau Travel Pass or the Regional Pass Bernese Oberland ?

The price for the Jungfrau Travel Pass for children from 6 to 15 (inclusive) is CHF 30. That allows them to travel along for free, even on routes where the parents just get a discount. Children do not need a pass in case they have a Junior travelcard. In that case the same privileges apply;Children up to 5 travel along for free. They don't need a pass;

Boat rides on Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, and the trains between Interlaken Ost and West are free if you have a pass for 5 or 6 days

Hi thanks for that - yes it is the more limited Jungfrau Travel Pass that we are looking at getting. I hadn't realised we needed to get tickets for the children too - we will have a 50% discount card and a family rail pass - does that make any difference? Sooooooo complicated thank you for your help!

Hi Ginny32cat,

I assume you mean the Swiss Half Fare Card where you said "50% discount card", right? If so, you either travel with that one or with the Jungfrau Travel Pass. If you travel with the Swiss Half Fare Card, then the Swiss Family Card allows your children to travel along for free. If you travel with the Jungfrau Travel Pass, the children will have their own cheaper pass as explained by Brahms.
