Protective measures

Winter Sports

The Jungfrau Ski Region is implementing a protection concept for Covid-19 based on the requirements of the federal government and the Canton of Bern. From Wednesday, 09 December 2020, all closed means of transport, e.g. railway carriages, cabins and gondolas, may only be occupied up to two thirds of the time. In principle, the following applies: passengers may only travel with a seat and a mask or a neck tube that conforms to BAG regulations.

On trains the full capacity includes standing and seating. The two-thirds requirement is met when all seats are occupied. There will be no standing room. We ask you to follow the instructions of the staff. 

The obligation to wear a mask ("mouth and nose protection") applies to all lifts (railway, cable car, gondola, chair lift, ski lift), not only in the waiting area. 
 When wearing mouth and nose protection, we refer to the recommendation from the BAG to wear a medical mask. In the meantime, there are neck tubes on the market which also meet the guidelines of a medical mask. Winter sports enthusiasts can buy so-called "neck tubes" or bandanas with filter inserts as mouth and nose protection in all Jungfrau Railways sales points and in the Top of Europe shops.

Masks must be worn in indoor areas accessible to the public, such as railway or cable car stations. In addition, a distance of 1.5 metres must be maintained.  Masks are also mandatory in all waiting areas (indoor and outdoor). A mask must also be worn in highly frequented places such as car parks.

Money back guarantee
A Covid-19 money back guarantee applies to all buyers of a Top4 skipass or Jungfrau Ski Region skipass, one-day or multi-day ticket. In the event of a lockdown and the resulting closure of all Top4 ski areas (Top4 skipass) or the Jungfrau Ski Region (Jungfrau Ski Region skipass), a refund will be made on a pro rata basis. Refunds will be made in cash or, for online purchases, by transfer to a credit card.
