Jungfrau or Zermatt?

We are driving from Chamonix (going to the top aiguille du midi) to the black forest in Germany, deciding which one would be better to spend a day at on the way? Both are quite a detour and not en route to each other so would appreciate your thoughts!

We are a young couple who like being active, but not necessary essential. Will be there mid september.

1. Re: Jungfrau or Zermatt?

Zoe, last September we were in the Chamonix area for a week. We really wanted to see the Matterhorn, so we booked one night at a hotel in Zermatt. It took us 2.5 hours driving to get from Chamonix to Zermatt...

By noon we were at the top of the Gornergrat. We had lunch there, then hiked a few miles downhill to another train, and were back in the town of Zermatt for an early dinner. The drive back to Chamonix the next day it snowed! This was the 12th of September.
