Interlaken to Jungfraujoch

Hello,

I will be in Interlaken for 2 days in September.

Is it advisable to book train tickets in advance for a day trip to Jungfraujoch? I noticed there are several train services a day.

Thanks,

Blue

If not having a special reason, never buy tickets for mountain excursions before having somehow reliable information on weather and visibility (meaning often enough just hours for Jungfraujoch) or you take chances being stuck with a non-refundable ticket for a trip at a bad time (weatherwise)

There is a passenger number limit set by the railway company for a day - should not be really a problem in September (especially not later in September).

In case you want to be on the really safe side you can buy a reservation for a specific train - https:/… - a bargain compared to the price of tickets you can buy then just before departure in addition to the reservation - or abandon reservation.
