Hello pateluresh. The Swiss Card offers a 50% discount on the trip to the Jungfraujoch. Please refer to the Swiss Card page, where you'll find a link to a map showing the exact network on which the Swiss Card is valid.

If you'll be entering Switzerland via Basel, the Swiss Half Fare Card is a bit cheaper than the Swiss Card. If you enter via Geneva, the Swiss Card is slightly cheaper. That's because the Swiss Card grants a free return trip from the border to your destination (Lauterbrunnen). Only if this is a long and expensive trip (such as Geneva-Lauterbrunnen), the Swiss Card is more economical than the Swiss Half Fare Card.

The 16 year old needs his or her own Swiss Half Fare Card or Swiss Card; the 10 year old can travel along for free with his/her parents if you purchase a free STS Family Card along with your passes.

Fares for all trains can be found through the timetable. More information is available in our railway FAQ.

Hello pateluresh,

The Swiss Card would be slightly cheaper. And more convenient as it already includes the round trip.
