I am planning for a trip to Jungfraujoch on June 03, 2018. My accommodation will be in Zurich near railway station. Can you please guide me the best way to and fro in terms of time and enjoyment. I will be with my wife and daughter 11 years and son 6 years.

You can use the SBB Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to plan your travel.

This might be worth reading as well www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfraujoch/gettingther e.

If we knew a bit more about how this excursion fitted into your Swiss visit it would be easier to provide some tailored advice.

You might actually get more response if you posted this in the Rail or Miscellaneous forums rather than as a Trip Report - just quietly.

Moved to rail thread. :)

As you'll see from Rockoyster's timetable link, it is a very long day to Jungfraujoch from Zurich - so be prepared for that!

Thanks Rockoyster.

I will be reaching Zurich airport at 19:30 on June 01, 2018. I am planning for visiting Jungfraunch, Titlis, Lucerne city and if possible Rhine Falls and zurich city tour. I will be leaving for Amsterdam on June 04, 2018 and the flight time is 19:30. Can you please guide me better. What is the earliest time I can start journey and the convenient train routes (I will be taking 3 days swiss rail pass) . In case you are looking for any particular details for the better guidance to me please let me know I will provide.

Thanks for your support and looking forward for your reply

Hi Rajesh,

You can use the timetable from Rockoyster's post to plan all the trips.

From: your hotel address in Zurich TO Jungfraujoch.

Put in the earliest time you want to get going...maybe 6am? It will then show you your options for the trip. The first train from Zurich main station is at 05:19 and will take over 4 hours (one-way).

June 2: Jungfraujoch (takes all day)
June 3: Lucerne and Mt. Titlis (takes all day)
June 4: Zurich city tour and/or the Rheinfalls

Hi Rajesh,

Have you already booked your hotel in Zurich ? If not, you might want to consider moving where you will be staying on some nights to cut down on excessive and repetitive train travel. I think staying in Lucerne on the night of June 2 would be a big help, and possibly June 3 as well. Alternatively, June 2 and June 1 in Lucerne and June 3 in Zurich.
