    Hi Kimberly,

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

    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.

    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 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.

    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
    Kleine Scheidegg-Jungfraujoch
    Grindelwald-Kleine Scheidegg

    Currently, schedules for the segment between Interlaken and Grindelwald are not able to be viewed on our website. However, the trains depart frequently and the ride is short. For your reference, trains between Interlaken and Grindelwald depart twice every hour throughout the day and the ride takes 34 minutes. If you need to inquire about specific departure and arrival times, you would have to call us at 1-800-622-8600.

      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.
