Get on track with your Jungfrau VIP Pass

This year it’s time to take a holiday to a whole new level thanks to the Jungfrau VIP Pass. This entitles unlimited travel on the magnificent Jungfrau Railways network, uniting seven spectacular mountain transport systems in the very heart of Switzerland.

This summer Switzerland is celebrating its 150th anniversary of Switzerland’s first Grand Tour and the birth of modern tourism. Valid for either three or six consecutive days, the passes offer plenty of time for sightseeing, hiking and simply taking in all of the wonderful sights and sounds of the Jungfrau. Located in the Bernese Oberland, against the incredible backdrop of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau massif, the region offers visitors the chance to enjoy an incredible variety of natural attractions. Easily accessed by cogwheel railway or aerial cableway are lush Alpine meadows, snow-capped peaks, glaciers, lakes and waterfalls, vast hiking areas and, of course, spectacular views.

The Jungfrau VIP Pass to the magnificent Jungfrau Railway system offers access to all of these unique natural wonders in the UNESCO World Heritage of the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch. The highlight of the journey, and one of the modern wonders of the world, with the Jungfrau Railway link, carries passengers on an incredible journey through a world of rock, ice and snow. Seven of its nine kilometres pass through a tunnel hewn into the rock of the Eiger and Mönch mountains. The train stops at the Eigerwand (Eiger Wall) and Eismeer (Sea of Ice) stations, where it’s time to marvel at the fascinating mountain world through the carriages’ panoramic windows.

Climbing 1400 metres in 50 minutes, the final destination from Kleine Scheidegg is the Jungfraujoch. Perched at 3454 metres, this is known as Top of Europe and is the continent’s highest-altitude railway station.
