Best pass for Jungfrau region over 3 days?

Hi, a party of two adults is traveling to the Jungfrau region in mid-May. We will be based in Wilderswil for 3 days. We will want to visit Top of Europe. We have no plans to travel outside the Jungfrau region. What is the best pass option for this 3-day visit that provides unlimited rail access and allows for visiting Top of Europe? (note we will be driving by car into the region from Luzerne)

    Hi,

    If you'll be staying in the area for multiple days, you would purchase the Jungfrau Travel Pass. The Jungfrau Travel Pass can be valid for your choice of 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 consecutive days. To purchase the Jungfrau Travel Pass, you would click here: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/Jungfrau-8309.

    The Jungfrau Travel Pass is valid on the trains up to Jungfraujoch from Wilderswil or Interlaken.

    This includes:

    - The Bernese Oberland Railway, which runs between Interlaken, Wilderswil, and Lauterbrunnen.

    - The Wengernalp Railway from Lauterbrunnen and Kleine Scheidegg.

    - The Jungfrau Railway from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe station.

    This pass is also valid on the other route up to Jungfraujoch, via Grindelwald.

    On the Jungfrau Railway (the segment between Kleine Scheidegg and Jungfraujoch), reservations are highly recommended for travel between the months of May and October. The reservations are a small cost in addition to the Jungfrau Travel Pass and have to be made locally at the stations in either Interlaken (Interlaken Ost), Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, or Wengen.

    Expect stunning views throughout the entire trek up to Jungfraujoch, whether you take the route via Grindelwald or the one via Lauterbrunnen. To get the most of your Jungfraujoch experience, you might want to consider making your ascent one way and your descent the other. The Jungfrau Railway itself runs mostly through a tunnel (the ‘Jungfrau Tunnel’), but there are two ‘sightseeing stops’ in the tunnel (‘Eigerwand’ and ‘Eismeer’) where passengers can exit their train and take in the views through windows built into the side of the mountain.

    At the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe station, you have access to the Sphinx Observation Terrace and the Aletsch Glacier (Great Aletsch Glacier). The Jungfraujoch station (Top of Europe) is the highest rail station in Europe, the Sphinx Observation Terrace is one of the highest astronomical observatories in the world, and the Aletsch Glacier (Great Aletsch Glacier) is the longest glacier in Europe.

  • Sorry, one last question, when is considered 'High Season' for this area (the tickets request high/mid/low)? I assume Mid may would be high season, but want to confirm. Thanks
