    Day 5
    A Day for Trainspotters
    Take the train from Interlaken to Jungfraujoch choosing from two diferent routes, one via Grindenwald and the other via Lauterbrunnen. The duration (2.5 hours) and price are the same, so it’s just a matter of preference. Once arriving in Grindewald or Lauterbrunnen, change to a cogwheel train to Kleine Scheidegg where you continue on the Jungfraubahn train to the summit. The 2.5 hour trip ascends more than 9000 feet!
