how to use the 'jungfraujoch top of europe' voucher

hi,
I purchased the swiss pass and 'jungfraujoch top of europe' voucher from the raileurope site - for my family. What is the procedure to use this voucher to Jungfraujoch - do i still have to make separate reservations? We plan to reach Interlaken on the 26th of July and take the Jungfraujoch trip the following day on the 27th of July. We were worried that by the time we reach Interlaken the trains to Jungfraujoch would all be filled up. How long is the trip up and back , will half a day be enought? Any help with planning this is much appreciated. - thanks

    Hi Kavitha,

    Reservations are not accepted for any part of the Jungfraujoch trip. The 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe' pass you purchased is an open voucher that you will use to hop on any of the trains up to Jungfraujoch and back. The roundtrip between Grindelwald or Wengen and Jungfraujoch would just have to be completed within a 24 time period once you begin the journey. Rest assured, you will have no difficulty getting on any of the trains.

    The trains depart very frequently, so there is no need to worry yourself about specific schedules. If you wish, you can just view schedules for the portion of this trip on the cogwheel from either Interlaken, Grindelwald or Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg by entering the cities under 'Check Fares and Schedules' on the homepage of our website and clicking the option to 'Check Schedules'. Schedules for the portion of the route on the Jungfrau railway from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch are not able to be viewed on our website.

    You would just use your Swiss Pass to travel between Interlaken and either Grindelwald or Wengen. If you do not wish to expend a day of rail travel on your Swiss Pass for the short travel between Interlaken and Grindelwald or Wengen, you can just purchase a separate ticket locally, and it would just be a small cost.

    A one-way between Interlaken and Jungfraujoch only takes about 2.5 hours in duration at the minimum (between Grindelwald or Wengen and Jungfraujoch, it would take only 1.5 hours).
