  • A 25% discount applies to the pass price if you have a valid Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card at the time of travel. Your Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card must be valid during the entire Jungfrau Travel Pass validity period. This discount also applies to Swiss Travel Pass Flex holders, but only if a travel day of the Swiss Travel Pass Flex is being used on each day of the Jungfrau Travel Pass. That's why we don't recommend this option.
  • The price for the Jungfrau Travel Pass for children from 6 up to and including 15 is CHF 30. That allows them to travel along for free, even on routes where the parents just get a discount. The Junior Travelcard and Swiss Family Card are not valid.
  • Children up to 5 travel along for free. They don't need a pass.
  • There are no special fares for seniors.

How does the Jungfrau Travel Pass work?

The Jungfrau Travel Pass is simple to use: you can board and enjoy the ride without the need for further tickets. Show the pass to the staff upon request.

How to start using the Jungfrau Travel Pass

The pass is ready to use once you’ve received it. Simply keep it on your phone.

  • You will receive a PDF file. This file has a QR code that train staff can scan from your smartphone.
  • Optionally, you can print backup copies of the pass on A4- or letter-sized paper.
  • The pass is ready to use if it includes all information like the start date, passenger name, and birth date. Your name may be truncated if it’s too long to fit on the pass, but that’s no problem.

In case you have received a voucher, you first need to obtain the actual pass. You can do so at any staffed train station in the region. You’ll then receive a paper pass.

The travel days of the Jungfrau Travel Pass

The travel days are consecutive. The pass start date is the first travel day. The pass will expire after the number of days you purchased it for, even if you don’t travel each day.

Seat reservations

You do not need seat reservations for traveling in the Jungfrau Region. All you need is your Jungfrau Travel Pass. If you prefer to have seat reservations, for Jungfraujoch for example, you need to arrange for them separately. Seat reservations are not included in the pass.

What to present to on-board staff

Once you’re on board, you will need to present your Jungfrau Travel Pass (and the discounted ticket if applicable) to the staff upon request. The ticket controller may want to check your passport as well, to make sure you’re the owner of the pass.

When do you need additional tickets?

There are two types of trips:

  1. Trips on routes that allow free traveling. You can just board any train, bus, boat, et cetera on such routes. You do not need a ticket.
  2. Trips on routes that allow discounted traveling. You need to arrange for a discounted ticket at the ticket office of staffed rail stations, from a ticketing machine, or online.

There are various cable cars that also allow free traveling. If you can’t scan your Jungfrau Travel Pass to enter the cableway or funicular, ask the personnel upon showing your pass. They’ll provide a free ticket to open the access gates.

Our tips – what not to miss

  • Do at least one boat ride on Lake Thun or Lake Brienz. If the weather isn’t great in the Jungfrau Region, chances are that it’s better on the lakes.
  • Take the free ride up to Harder Kulm for a good view of Interlaken and the lakes.
  • The cogwheel train to Schynige Platte offers a spectacular and scenic ride.

Jungfrau Travel Pass FAQ

  1. How do I know if the Jungfrau Travel Pass is my best option?

    If you’re sure you only want to explore the Jungfrau Region, it’s a very good option. If you want to explore more of the Bernese Oberland, we recommend the Berner Oberland Pass instead. It includes a much bigger area, so you’ll be more flexible.

    You can search for further alternatives here.

  2. Is the Jungfrau Travel Pass the same as the Berner Oberland Pass?

    No, the Jungfrau Travel Pass covers a much smaller area than the Bernese Oberland Pass. The Jungfrau Region is only a part of the Bernese Oberland.

  3. I don’t travel in-season, is there an alternative pass?

    Yes: for a winter trip, you can consider the similar Jungfrau Hiking and Sledging Pass.

  4. Is the Jungfrau Travel Pass better than the other Jungfrau passes?

    There are not that many passes for the Jungfrau Region specifically. There have been various name changes though. If you run into these old pass names, it may seem like there are many passes.

    The Jungfrau Railways Pass and Jungfrau VIP Pass were for sale until 2015. The Top of Europe Pass was available until 2022.

  5. When do I need to buy the Jungfrau Travel Pass?

    You can buy within the season (mid April to early November). Sales usually start a few weeks before the season begins.

Page author: ArnoI have visited Switzerland countless times since 1997. I've explored most of the country, but find myself staying in the Bernese Oberland and Graubünden most frequently. The alps and the rail network remain very impressive, even after all these years.
