Frequently asked questions

  • High mountains: What is the best clothing for a trip to the Jungfraujoch?

    On your excursion to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe, to the highest railway station in Europe, you will climb to an altitude of 3,454 metres above sea level and reach the alpine mountain world. In summer and winter, temperatures below freezing point are to be expected and weather changes can also occur at short notice. We recommend that you dress according to the so-called “onion principle” so that you can adapt your clothing to the conditions. The basic equipment for the excursion includes a jacket, closed shoes, a hat, a pair of gloves and sunglasses because of the high-altitude sun.

  • Does the weather play a role when visiting the Jungfraujoch?

    Don’t worry about the weather. There is plenty to see and do on the Jungfraujoch in all weather, even the journey itself is worth the trip. Even if it is cloudy in the valley and it looks like bad weather, at an altitude of 3,454 metres above sea level and above, the clouds can often only be seen from above.

  • How often does a train go to the Jungfraujoch each day or how many connections are there?

    The fastest and most comfortable way takes you via Grindelwald Terminal / the new Eiger Express tricable gondola to the Jungfraujoch. From the Eiger Glacier station there is a connection to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe every 30 minutes, depending on season and demand. For details, please visit jungfrau.ch/fahrplan.

  • How much time do I need to plan for my trip to the Jungfraujoch?

    The visit to the Jungfraujoch is a day trip. It is best to reserve a whole day for the visit. Especially in summer (depending on weather conditions between May and October), the hike to the Mönchsjochhütte and a visit to the Snow Fun Park (both on the large Aletsch glacier) are well worth your time.

  • Which ticket does a child need?

    Children up to 5 years always travel free. Children from age 6 to 15 either travel free with a Junior or Children’s Co-Travelcard, or pay half fare. The family cards described can be purchased for CHF 30 per child at all SBB railway stations in Switzerland.

    Family discounts such as the Junior Card, Children's Travelcard or Swiss Family Card are not valid in combination with the Top of Europe Pass, the Jungfrau Travel Pass or the Jungfrau Corona Pass. In any case, children from 6-15 years need the Top of Europe Pass, Jungfrau Travel Pass or Jungfrau Corona Season Pass at the price of CHF 30.00 net per child.
