Visit Jungfrau

Hi, we are 9 malaysian ladies will depart for Basel from Amsterdam in Apr 2013. We have booked hotel in Basel for the 1st & 2nd day and on the 3rd day we plan to stay in Lauterbrunnen. We have to fly back to Amsterdam on 4th day. I would like to find out the followings :

1. is it too rush to travel from Lauterbrunen to Basel on the 4th day as we dont intend to stay in Basel.

2. How to book the offer ticket for the whole journey which will start from Basel, check-in in Interlaken, go to Jungfrau, check in in Lauterbrunen and go back to Basel again. All in we have 4 days 3 nights, Should we buy in advance for the train ticket.

Pls advise.

Thank you

1. Re: Visit Jungfrau

it is definitely too rushed. I suggest one night in Basel, then 2 nights in Lauterbrunnen, then 1 night in Basel.

A rail pass will probably be more economical for you, check the swissrail.ch site for more info. You have to buy some passes before you arrive in Switzerland. A site which can help with calculating the price is www.ricksteves.com

Hi Ms Ooi,

What are your flight schedules?

Basel airport is in France. I think a Swiss Pass will cover the bus to BaselSBB train station. Your major transport cost on Swiss soil will be the mountain trip up. A return trip between Basel and Lauterbrunnen does not warren a train pass. So do your math including all your mountain peak excursions.

View from Jungfraujoch depends on the weather, You don't want to stand there in the fog. Therefore we advise people to stay 2-3 days at the base to have a better chance, preferably close to the cog-wheeled train station so that you may go up as soon as the webcam on TV shows a clear sky.

Hi, thank you for your reply. We will reach Basel Switzerland at 9.30am. From there we will travel to Interlaken and put up 2 nights there (hotel booking has been confirmed in interlaken). For the last day (1 night) we plan to stay at Lauterbrunen before depart for Amsterdam from Basel. Anyway our flight will be 6.30pm on the final day. So, i suppose there will be sufficient time to travel from Lauterbrunen to Basel Airport.. Appreciafe if you can advise us on the following :

1. for our 4d3n in Switzerland that begins from Basel airport up to Jungfau and back to Basel Airport, which type of pass is suitable & economic for us ?

2. is there any discounted ticket if buy in advance ?

Thank you.

Regards,

Ms Ooi
