JUNGFRAUJOCH (Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen, Kleine Scheidegg, Jungfraujoch, Grindelwald) by Rail Pass
To travel up to the highest railway station of Europe, you have to pay some extras. The InterRail ticket is only available until the SBB railway station Interlaken Ost. There you have to buy an extra ticket.
Your tour will be with some changes (no problem as the trains will wait on each other - it is a touristic rail route - so just relax - and have sometimes a stop!):
Interlaken Ost - Lauterbrunnen - Kleine Scheidegg - Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald - Interlaken Ost.
The information taken from the Jungfraujochbahn:
This unique round-trip by modern cogwheel railway takes you first to Kleine Scheidegg, altitude 2061 metres, at the foot of the notorious Eiger North Wall.
From here the Jungfrau Railway climbs to the station at Eigergletscher , well known for its mountain restaurant and polar dog kennels.
The trip continues through the Eiger tunnel to the stations at Eigerwand and Eismeer, with a five minute halt at each. Enjoy spectacular sightseeing through large observation windows hewn from solid Alpine rock.
And then the arrival on the Jungfraujoch, in the heart of a glorious glacier world on the very roof of Europe! Superb views extend as far as the summits of the Vosges Mountains in France and the Black Forest in Germany. The Great Aletsch Glacier, at 22 km the longest ice-stream in the Alps, begins on the Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe.
