Travelling by public transport

Switzerland is located in the heart of Europe - and has one of the best railway networks in the world. It is served directly by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, you can take direct trains from Zurich and Basel to Interlaken Ost - and thus to the Jungfrau Region. From Geneva, you have to change trains in Bern. Interlaken Ost is also the terminus of the ICE Frankfurt-Braunschweig-Berlin and the EC Karlsruhe-Mainz-Cologne-Düsseldorf-Amsterdam.

The Regional Pass is available in summer for 3, 4, 6, 8 or 10 days. It is valid on almost all public transport in the Bernese Oberland and offers reduced fares for excursions to the Valais, Central Switzerland and even as far as Lake Geneva. The Bernese Oberland Regional Pass is available at tourist centres and railway ticket offices.

For free travel throughout Switzerland, we recommend the Swiss Travel Pass.
The Junior Card is suitable for families. It is available at railway counters, post offices and Tourist Centres.

With the SBB Luggage Special, your luggage is collected from any address within Switzerland and transported to selected accommodation within two days - and back again, of course.

Travel in a climate-friendly and relaxed way by public transport and discover the Jungfrau Region on two wheels. Would you like to take your own bike or racing bike with you? No problem: SBB will transport your bike from station to station. You can also take it with you on the train and in many buses. You can find all the information here.

Arriving by car

You can reach the Jungfrau Region by car from Basel/Zurich/Geneva via Berne or from Lucerne via the Brünig Pass (open in summer and winter). From the south, you can reach the Bernese Oberland via the Grimsel or Susten Pass (only open in summer) or the Simplon Pass with the subsequent Lötschberg car transport.

Our tip: Park your car at one of the 600 or so SBB P+Rail stations and change trains there for the Jungfrau Region. In winter, you benefit from a 50% discount on the parking fee at weekends. Find out more
