Hello, I have 2 days to do snow mountains. I have narrowed my options to 3 now - 1) Mt Titlis 2) Matternhorn Glacier 3) Jungfraujoch. Can you please suggest which of the 2 snow mountains I should do ?

Thanks !

Hi chintan982 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

All are great - I'd probably choose the 2 closest to wherever you are staying. What are your travel plans in Switzerland?

Hi Chintan982-

If you go in February, you'll have snow everywhere...pretty much. ;-)

When are you traveling?

Hi Chintan

In my experience , Matterhorn is a little unique ..not only the journey to Gonegratt but the train journey to Zermatt itself .

Titlis and Jungrfauch , one could argue offer similar experiences and have similar activities . I would personally opt for Jungfrauch ..given that the journey up thru Grindelwald and back via Latterbrunnen is quite scenic .

Also as , Lucas mentioned it also depends on where you are based .

Cheers

I have a similar question as Chintan. I am going to be based at Unterseen, Bern (Interlaken) for 3 days in July. Is going to Matterhorn / Gogernat from Interlaken not feasible?

Both mountains will work for snow. I'd choose the one that appeals to you most (read through my links to help you decide). Jungfraujoch is the highest and the most unique trip in Switzerland (and the most expensive).

Hi Sjchaos,

Yes, you can visit Zermatt and Gornergrat from Interlaken.

You can use the timetable to plan the trip and see schedules and duration: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable

Hi

To experience snow in August, I'd recommend visiting the Jungfraujoch and the Klein Matterhorn near Zermatt, both of which are above the permanent snow line. The Gornergrat is snow free in summer, but the view of the mountains is stunning.
