Jungfrau Railways pursues a clear sponsoring strategy in order to continuously strengthen its brand awareness as well as its image, while at the same time taking its responsibilities seriously as the region's economic engine. Jungfrau Railways is a major or main sponsor of many events, and as a railway company it takes on transport services to a great extent. This means not only financial but also personnel effort, which is only possible thanks to the great performance of the staff.

«We have been able to rely on a successful partnership with Jungfrau Railways as the main sponsor for 25 years. Together, we have been able to steadily expand the global success of the Jungfrau Marathon. Every year, thousands of happy runners can enjoy the most beautiful marathon in the world.»

*Jungfrau Railways as official partner of the International Lauberhorn Ski Races

Jungfrau Railways is the official partner of the International Lauberhorn Ski Races. A new cooperation agreement was signed in 2014 between Lauberhorn Organising Committee, Jungfrau Railways and the Jungfrau Ski Region. The contractually assured mutual benefits in kind amount to CHF 1.8 million and are offset to the same extent. They mainly concern the areas of transport and advertising. Worldwide broadcasting has given the Lauberhorn Ski Races an important value for winter sports in the Jungfrau region. Regarding the transport services provided, the International Lauberhorn Ski Races are the biggest event for Jungfrau Railways. Some 1,946 tonnes of material were transported by the Wengernalp Railway for the Lauberhorn Ski Races in 2016.

«Jungfrau Railways is our most important regional partner. Its services for all rail transport and for the preparation of slopes are of vital importance for the Lauberhorn Ski Races.»

Urs Näpflin, President of the Organising Committee, International Lauberhorn Ski Races

The railway not only transports materials but also the spectators. A Lauberhorn ticket on race days includes unlimited travel on the railway lines from Interlaken Ost via Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg as well as on the Innerwengen chairlift. Skiers can buy combi ski passes for one or two days. Holders of a Sportpass for the Jungfrau Ski Region will receive admission to the Lauberhorn race at a special rate. For children up to 15 years, a visit to the event is free when accompanied by a paying adult. They will also receive a free ski pass.

Local initiatives and projects

In addition to the sponsorship of major events, Jungfrau Railways attaches great importance to supporting local and regional institutions, initiatives and projects. These include cultural and sporting clubs, ski clubs or projects and events related to the activities of Jungfrau Railways or the region. The support takes the form of advertisements in newsletters, raffle prizes or competitions and/or monetary contributions. Through this support, Jungfrau Railways wants the local population to share in its success, secure the survival of these associations and enable the creation of local initiatives and projects.

With annual contributions for memberships in associations/organisations in the areas of tourism, winter sports, nature, the environment, the economy and public transport, Jungfrau Railways seeks to promote the attractiveness of the entire region.
