  • Hi Balaji,

    The 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe' pass is an open voucher that you would use to hop on any of the trains up to Jungfraujoch and back within a time period of 24 hours. For this pass, you would click here: https://www.raileurope.com/activities/jungfraujoch/index.html.

    To get from Interlaken to the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe station, there are 2 different routes you can take; one that goes via Grindelwald and the other that goes via Lauterbrunnen/Wengen.

    The Grindelwald route would look like this:

    -Train from Interlaken to Grindelwald on the ‘Bernese Oberland Railway’
    -Train from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg on the ‘Wengernalp Railway’
    -Train from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch on the ‘Jungfrau Railway’ (the highest railway in Europe)

    The Lauterbrunnen/Wengen route would look like this:

    -Train from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen on the ‘Bernese Oberland Railway’
    -Train from Lauterbrunnen to Kleine Scheidegg on the ‘Wengernalp Railway’ (Wengen is a stop along this rail line)
    -Train from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch on the ‘Jungfrau Railway’ (the highest railway in Europe)

    On the 'Jungfrau Railway' between Kleine Scheidegg and Jungfraujoch, reservations are highly recommended between the months of May and October. The reservations are a small cost in addition to the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe' and have to be made locally at the stations in Interlaken (Interlaken Ost), Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, and Wengen.

    Expect stunning views throughout the entire trek between Interlaken and Jungfraujoch, whether you take the route via Grindelwald or the one via Lauterbrunnen/Wengen. 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.

    I'm sorry, as we are not able to provide or verify schedules through this forum, Using the search feature right on the homepage of our website (www.raileurope.com), you can view schedules for the following segments of the trek between Interlaken and Jungfraujoch:

    Grindelwald-Kleine Scheidegg (and vice versa)
    Lauterbrunnen-Kleine Scheidegg (and vice versa)
    Kleine Scheidegg-Jungfraujoch (and vice versa)

    Schedules for the segments from Interlaken to Grindelwald and Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen are currently not able to be viewed on our website. For your reference, trains from Interlaken to Grindelwald depart twice every hour and the ride takes 34 minutes, while trains from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen depart twice every hour throughout the day, and the ride only takes about 20 minutes.
