Hi All!

We are intending to do a one day trip at Jungfraujoch from Wengen mid March. Do we need to buy tickets in advance or can we purchase tickets on the same day we are heading to Jungfraujoch?

Can I confirm the train rates I see online are before Half Fare (50%) or Swiss Travel (25%)?

When arriving in Jungfraujoch, can we self navigate?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Faith,

I would buy them the day of departure. That way you can see if they weather looks good or not.

The first rates you see on the timetable are the Swiss Half Fare card rates. It won't show you the Swiss Travel Pass rates on the timetable (either full rate or half fare).

You can find a PDF list of prices on our Jungfraujoch ticket page (under "more information").
From Wengen you are looking at about 183 CHF round trip (before any discount).

I looked at the ticket price page Lucas

www.jungfrau.ch/filead min/Prospekte_und_Bros chueren/Jungfraubahnen _Fahrpreise_Preisliste .pdf

There is no price for September and October - does the train run in September and October?!

I am booking 8 days in Wengen in September and the Jungfraujoch is on the list.

Thx

Hi BarSal,

There are a number of "seasons". Season 1 is 10.12.2017 – 31.05.2018 / 01.09.2018 – 31.10.2018

The train will be running while you are there. As with just about every other trip in Switzerland you can use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to check if something is running or not.

Thx Rockoyster (are you in Sydney? ... just the name and your love of being by the water)

Yes I dis see September/October in season 1 after I asked the question. Dah! I am juggling so much information at this time putting together the jigsaw puzzle itinerary of five weeks between flight dates that I have locked in and fully paid for.

The travel passes had me bamboozled for a few days - regional or national, continuous or flexible etc etc... but after your comment on the 15day flex and our 21 days in Switzerland, I looked at the big rocks of the trip and your advice was spot on. So thanks for that!

Hi Sally,

Now in Tasmania (cool-climate wine country). No Sydney rock oysters here, only Pacifics but still very good especially from Bruny Island.

Formerly from NSW South Coast.

Glad to hear your plans are coming together. Switzerland is magical.
