Getting There

Public transport

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.

Getting there

By car there are different ways to get there. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Bern. From Zurich, the fastest route is towards Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.

Coming from the south, you can reach the region via the Grimsel or Susten Pass. The two passes are only open in summer. The Simplon Pass and then the Lötschberg car transport are alternatives.


Parking spaces are available on the Grimselpassstrasse. Since parking is limited, public transport is recommended.
