I have a short visit to Lauterbrunnen coming up in August with my family. We are trying to fit in a bunch of activities, and of course trying not to go broke at the same time.
It looks like we could do the "Good Afternoon" trip to Jungfraujoch (at a discount, since we'd be using full fare tickets). The fare rules say you have to leave Kleine Scheidegg at 14:30 or later. Consulting the train schedule- we could leave Lauterbrunnen at either 13:07 or 13:37 and it looks like this works.
This would have us arriving at Jungfraujoch at 15:22- giving us just over 2 hours to explore before the last train down at 17:45.
Is 2 hours enough time to see Jungfraujoch? We won't do any skiing or anything like that- but would like to see the ice palace and other tourist sights. Will there be any daytime left, assuming good weather?
At Kleine Scheidegg, if we got there a little early - are they strict on the fare rules? Would they let us on the 14:00 train with the good afternoon pass?
Thanks for any advice.
