Gondola pass for Jungfrau region?

We'll be in Grindelwald for 5 days in late May with 2 of our college age sons. We have a local apartment and a car, first time back since 1992.

We expect to be taking gondolas up each day for day hikes all around the region. Are there any discount passes available for the lifts?

3. Re: Gondola pass for Jungfrau region?

Hi, sorry, more questions.....I'm checking out the passes. We arrive in Grindelwald on a Monday, depart on a Saturday....so really we'll be there 4 full days. If I get a VIP pass, it appears to cost CHF235 for 3 days, and that entitles me to every gondola in the region, plus a a trip to the Jungfraujoch.....no added cost.

What I'm trying to figure out is my savings. What does it normally cost to take the cog train from Grund to the Jungfaujoch? Also, is there a web site that tells me how much the cable car costs from Grindelwald to First, and from Grindelwald to Pfingstegg?

I'm sure there must be savings, just having a hard time determining what those savings are. Thanks ahead, appreciate the help!

No. Very limited cover with this pass. Check out validity map at:- swisspasses.com/railpass/…

Also pre-booking/paying for trip to Jungfraujoch not recommended as it is weather dependent. If this prevents you from making the trip or it is clouded in when you arrive at the top you will have wasted a lot of money.

thanks for the advice,...yep, we've been up to the Jungfrau a number of times in the past.....honestly though, bringing two of our kids with us, we'll go in the snow/fog/rain if we have to during the week....it's a long way from Boston to go back! :)
