Hi All,

I'm Darren , from Singapore , im new here, will be travelling to Swiss this coming April 17 , 2018.

Would like to check, can i still purchase for this Jungfrau Hiking and Sledging Pass ?

The forum stated this pass only Available for traveling in winter (until April 17, 2018).

So can i still use it for 18 19 20 April?

If not any other pass can i look for ?

Hi Scars and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

I think the Hiking and Sledging Pass is only valid up to 17 April and the Jungfrau Travel Pass Summer does not become available until 5 May.

Quite a few forms of mountain transport cease to operate in April and early May. See post from Alpenrose666 on this thread www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/lifts-and-rail-access-to-mountain-destinations.

The Bernese Oberland Pass doesn't start until 21 April so your only real choices are the the Swiss Travel Pass or the Swiss Half-fare Card. Have a look at “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).

Hi Darren,

>> will be travelling to Swiss this coming April 17 , 2018 ... can i still purchase for this Jungfrau Hiking and Sledging Pass ? ... for 18 19 20 April?

The Jungfrau website will allow you to buy a Jungfrau Region Hiking and Sledging Pass for 3 days from 18 April (see attached screen shot). However, as rockoyster mentioned, you would need to consider whether it is worth it, as some mountain transport for which the pass is valid will have closed for maintenance by then.

This is what it covers, and I have noted what will be operating between 18-20 April:

The Hiking and Sledging Pass provides unlimited free travel on the following:

Operating

  • Trains Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen and Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg and Eigergletscher
  • Gondola Grindelwald to First
  • Bus and cable car Lauterbrunnen-Stechelberg-Mürren
  • Cable car and train Lauterbrunnen-Grütschalp-Mürren

Not operating

  • Gondola Grindelwald Grund to Männlichen
  • Cable car Wengen to Männlichen
  • Bus Grindelwald to Bussalp until 16.00
  • Funicular Mürren to Allmendhubel

If you get a Hiking and Sledging Pass for at least 3 days, you also get 50% discount on tickets between:

Both of these will be operating.

Good pickup Alpenrose. It appears you can buy a 9-day pass on 22 April but you can't buy even a 1-day pass starting 23 April.

Good Day to you, Thanks for the reply.

rockoyster mentioned Hiking and Sledging Pass is only valid up to 17 April and the Jungfrau Travel Pass Summer does not become available until 5 May. so it abit confusing... so sorry for my poor understanding.

Don't you just hate it when someone goes and changes the title of a thread after you've bookmarked it! Try www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/gondolarail-access-to-mountains-in-aprilmay-2018

I think Alpenrose has already covered all the relevant items in the post above. 🤓

Hi Rockoyster,

The URL of a thread should not change even when the title is edited. However sometimes it changes anyway. It's a technical glitch I'd really like to solve, but it's out of my hands :-( I've fixed the above link.

Hi Arno,

No criticism. "Don't you just hate it when . . . ." is just a very common Australian phrase. 😎
