Jungfraujoch and Grindelawald First

Is it possible to do both Jungfraujoch and Grindelwald First in a day trip from Interlaken ? I intend to travel around 25th August.

Thanks

It probably could be physically done but it would involve a lot of rushing around and not much time to enjoy either of the attractions.

You would have to catch the very earliest train to the Jungfraujoch (which is about 6:30-7:00 am) from the Interlaken Ost station. That would enable you to be back down to Kleine Scheidegg by noon where you could catch a train at 12:30-1:00 down to Grindelwald by 1:45 pm. The walk through town to the Gondola station and the ride up will take most of an hour so it's going to be near 3:00 pm by the time you get up to the First station. The last gondola coming down leaves the First station around 5:00 pm so that doesn't leave you much time to really enjoy the area. Certainly not enough time to walk up to the Bachalpsee and back which is one of the main attractions of this trip.

I would pick one of these destinations and go at a more comfortable pace taking your time to enjoy all each has to offer.

Thank you. Thats really helpful.

On a related note, i have read about checking the latest weather update before going to Jungfraujoch. Does one need to check the weather for Grindelwald First as well ? If Jungfrau weather is not good can you visit Grindelwald First instead and make the most of the day ?

They do have active webcams at First and it's always a good idea to check them before any trip up to the mountains.
