<<"Thanks for your inputs on the distance of Jungfrau from Luzern...Havealready factored that in....Have a flexible pass which allows us toboard the Jungfrau excursion on any of the 8 days we are visiting...SoWill check the weather from Luzern and if it turns out to be bad, thenhave a plan B to spend time in Lauterbrunnen valley, etc..In case ofgood weather will plan to ascend the Jungfrau...">>
Well thought out. I missed your plan to select a good day out of 8 available. The best way to check the weather is on the cameras at the train stations in Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen, etc.
If you have a good solid clear day, you are fine from Luzern. If it is variable, it is better to be right there when making your judgement.
We came over from Morschach on the day I took this picture - September 22, 2009....the whole day was glorious.<<"Can you pleasecomment on my query of best day or time in the day to visit these placesto avoid heavy crowds???? Would appreciate your inputs on the same....">>
I can - clouds tend to come in as the day progresses. AM is better, on average. I suggest the 0456 train from Luzern, arriving at Jungfraujoch at 0952.. The 0605 would work, also.
In mid-September the crowds will have thinned out....Arno and Annika have more experience on that point than I do, but I'd not worry about crowds on a week day. So, if the weather is really good, you can most likely go up anytime during the day on a weekday.
