“Cramped place with no place go in poor weather”

If you are lucky you may get good views, but if not there is very little to see and do here. When the clouds roll in you are looking out at white nothingness and you could be anywhere. The train journey through a tunnel is admittedly a technical wonder, but is very cramped, hot and stuffy. Too many people with no place to go makes for an unpleasant experience.

It is the most amazing experience to go up the Jungfrau by changing three trains. Would suggest you to take the first train at 6 :30 leaving interlaken. It is good 2 hours train ride among awesome and spell binding views of the majestic mountains. The sphinx laboratory is just next to Jungfrau and must go place.

We went thru an Ice flyer this is a rope way trolly which has a unique feature that it rotates while climbing up and coming down, the natural view of snow mountain is breath taking for people living in planes....

We came again to Jungfraujoch to introduce our family including the youngest (8 month old) to the glacier, and the feel of Haute Montagne.
It is stunning.
Very expensive (about 200 dollars for just the return train trip from Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen) so be sure to go on a day with good weather at the top, but in our view a jouney of a lifetime.

First, be aware you are signing on for at least a half day to get up, spend some time and get back to Interlaken. I thought from some reviews it was a couple hours but no. Second, be aware that they have marketed heavily in Asia, India, Pakistan, etc and their marketing has been hugely successful so the trains are packed and the facilities are packed with these groups...and I mean packed. Next, take into account that the top is often socked in the clouds. Having said that, the ride up at the lower levels thru beautiful valleys was great. Also, the sit down restaurant at the top had great food and service. But when all is said and done, this trip was a lot of time and money and a lot of crowds.
