"When it comes to STP, everything looks clear (along with the fact that, unfortunately, the most expensive attraction Jungfraujoch gives a 25% discount instead of 50%)."
The Jungfrau railway management know very well how many people want to visit this 'tourist trap', so they make as much money as they can out of tourists, so they only relunctantly give discounts , hence the 25%. They know that under normal circumstances, enough long haul tourists will be attracted, by the 'thing' that is Jungfraujoch, to pay up.
The 'thing' to many observers is nowadays tainted by being too much like a theme park, and overpriced. You have the option to omit it from your trip. You get a great view of the Jungfrau from Mürren which is a cheaper place to get to and a much more pleasant place to spend some time.
There are two other threads on at the moment where I have talked about Mürren , and Gornergart as the better spectacle.
