    Hi Farhana,

    For the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe' pass, you would click here: https://www.raileurope.com/activities/jungfraujoch/index.html.

    The option you choose would depend on the rail pass you're traveling with. Just match the option you choose to the rail pass you'll be traveling with. If you'll be traveling with a 'Swiss Travel Pass', you would purchase the '1 Day Round-Trip Journey from Grindelwald or Wengen - For Use Only With Swiss Travel Pass' of the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe'. If you'll be traveling with a Eurail Select Pass that includes Switzerland, you would purchase the '1 Day Round-Trip Journey from Interlaken - For Use Only With Eurail Pass Which Includes Switzerland'.

    This 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. The pass would just have to be used within 6 months from the date it is purchased.

    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)

    With the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe', you would be able to take both of these routes.

    On the 'Jungfrau Railway' (between Kleine Scheidegg and Jungfraujoch), reservations would be highly recommended for travel 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. On the other segments, you will have no problems getting on the trains.

    I'm sorry, as we are not able to provide or verify schedules through this forum, and schedules from Interlaken to Grindelwald 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.

    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:

    Interlaken-Lauterbrunnen
    Lauterbrunnen-Kleine Scheidegg

    Grindelwald-Kleine Scheidegg
