We are visiting Interlaken Sept 16 -18 and would like to go to jungfraujoch on Sept 17. Our travel to interlaken is by car. I would also like to go on a boat tour of Lake Thun, and possibly one other half day trip into the mountains. Is the Swiss half fare card my best discount option.
Hello Sue and welcome to MySwissAlps
Is that all you are doing in Switzerland? If you go by train from Interlaken to Jungfraujoch then you will almost break even on the cost of a Swiss Travel Pass on that trip alone. So you will save on your Thunersee trip and your other half-day excursion. If you are doing other things as well in Switzerland that require public transport then the SHFC is a no brainer.
If you happen to have kids with you then see www.myswissalps.com/sw issfamilycard.
As stated by Rockoyster, the regular ticket to the Jungfraujoch is fairly expensive and so for sure a Swiss Half Fare Card or as Rockoyster says a Swiss Travel Pass would be recommendable: - www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard
