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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br /><b><u>Interlaken to Paris</u></b><br /><br />Connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Interlaken</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/paris">Paris</a> take just over 5 hours in duration and involve changing trains once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/basel" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Basel</a> along the way.<br /><br />On trains from Interlaken to Basel, reservation are not necessary at all, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you would need to board.<br /><br />Trains from Basel to Paris are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV Lyria</a> trains on which reservations are required as a supplement to a rail pass.<br /><br />You can use the route search feature on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/">our homepage</a> to view schedules for the unreserved segment from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/interlaken-basel" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/interlaken-basel">Interlaken to Basel</a> (leaving the 'I have a rail pass' button unchecked).<br /><br />You would then do a separate search to purchase your passholder reservations for a connecting train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/basel-paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/basel-paris">Basel to Paris</a> (making sure you re-check the 'I have a rail pass' button)..

    Change in reply by Jeff to It depends on the number of days you plan to use the pass. If you go with a 'flexipass' version of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a>, you would base it on the following:<br /><br />A flexipass allows for a set number of travel days, which must be completed within a longer time frame. If you choose the 3, 5, or 7 day options of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>, that longer time frame would be 1 month. If you choose the 10 or 15 day options of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>, that longer time frame would be 2 months. With a flexipass, the 1 or 2 month validity period would start to count down after you get your pass 'validated' at the station, which is something you would do before boarding your first train.<br /><br />'Travel days' on a flexipass refer to how many separate days you plan on using your rail pass. A ‘travel day’ is a 24 hour period from midnight to midnight. You may take as many trains as you wish during the 24 hour time frame and still only use one day of travel on a pass. For instance, if you were take a day train from 'city A' to 'city B' and then take a connecting train to 'city C' on the same day, then you would only use up one day of travel on your rail pass. In contrast, if you were to take that connecting train to 'city C' on the next day, that would constitute 2 days of rail travel on your pass.<br /><br />Doing the '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315" rel="nofollow">Jungfraujoch Top of Europe</a>' would not count as a 'travel day' on your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>..
