We will be arriving at Zurich from Amsterdam on 26th April by train at. 8.30am. Our plan is to catch 9.04 train to Interlaken
Via Lucern . As we will have kids with us is this feasible. How far will platforms be and as we speak only English will we get directions easily. We plan to buy Swiss Pass before the trip.
Once we reach Interlaken can we go to Jungfrauch on the same day. Or would the next day be better.
Awaiting your expert advice,

Hi Ramya,

Half an hour is plenty of time for the change. Getting directions in English should not be a problem, but it's very easy to find the right platform if you know the departure time and destination of your train. In the central hall, there is a huge display with all trains listed, just like at airports. Platform numbers can also to be found in the timetable is you click down to the details of your train. Of course last minute changes are possible, so it's good to look at the display also. There are displays at the platforms as well, so you really can't go wrong.

You can visit the Jungfrau the same day (please see the timetable), but I would advice to make that decision based on the weather. On average, the mornings are more clear at such heights.

All about the pass can be found at the Swiss Pass page, including a list of purchase options (if you fill out your country of residence, etc.).

Hotels at walking distance from the Interlaken rail station can be found here.
