  • Jungfrau Travel Pass: Unlimited Transportation Ticket

    3. Jungfrau Travel Pass: Unlimited Transportation Ticket

    Take in the views at Schynige Platte, adventure at Grindelwald First, or if you prefer, watch the sun set over Harder Kulm. The Jungfrau Travel Pass has it all: three to eight days travel to all destinations and a special price for the trip to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. What top excursions are included? Interlaken - Harder Kulm - Top of Adventure Kleine Scheidegg Schynige Platte - Top of Swiss Tradition Grindelwald - First - Top of Adventure Grütschalp - Top of Family Männlichen Mountain Grosse Scheidegg and Bussalp by bus This pass is an all-in-one and valid for 3 to 8 days. It allows you unlimited travel on all routes that are included.

    I purchased the 3 day pass last minute on the night before traveling fo Jungfrau the next day. It was the best thing I did. I received the confirmation and voucher immediately on the app and via email. All I needed to do was go to the Interlaken OST train station and exchange the print of the voucher for the pass. The only problem was that pass mentions that it includes the bus in Grindelwald but the bus driver told us that the pass was not valid so we walked to First Bahn which is a 10 mins walk from Grindelwald Station. Their customer service is responsive which was helpful to calm my nerves at 11pm when I was trying to make the reservation.

    For this trip compared to our Mt Titlis one, our guide Catherine was very clear and good. She not only spoke well in English and Spanish, she introduced many parts of our journey and background knowledge of Switzerland to us. I was a very educational coach journey on our way to Interlaken. Only set back was we had to rush over our lunch just because the other group that was going up Jungfraujoch had to catch a train ride while we continue our coach journey towards Grindelwald

  • Day Trip from Zurich: Grindelwald First Mountain Adventure

    This tour was amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable. People who do this tour must realize that there is a significant amount of self-guided time. There certainly could have been more specific instruction about how to actually get to the cable car to get up to Mt. First. It wasn’t terribly difficult to figure out, but that was a small bit that was lacking. In general, though, the tour and the whole experience were absolutely fantastic!!!
