Jungfrau Ski Region Switzerland

The iconic Jungfrau mountain is the centre-piece for this classic Swiss Alps interconnected ski area. Jungfrau ski region in Switzerland links the resorts of Muerren Schilthorn & Grindelwald Wengen & the resort town of Interlaken under the one lift pass, providing over 200km of ski slopes, over 2000m of vertical and a longest run of over 15km. Try & get over that!

See the Jungfrau ski region trail map here.

The spectacular surroundings framed by the mountain peaks of Jungfrau, Mönch, Eiger & Schreckhorn are an added bonus, as is the ease of access via Interlaken on the amazing Swiss rail system. And whilst 'spectacular' isn't an adequate description for the region, it gives a hint to the gob-smacking grand scale of the surroundings, the skiing, & the extraordinary rail & lift system. New lifts opening in 2019/20 linking the Grindelwald train station directly to the highest points below the Eiger are a game-changer for skiing the region.

Where is the Jungfrau Ski Region Switzerland?

The Jungfrau is in central Switzerland just south of the city of Interlaken. Interlaken is 55km by road south-east of Bern & only 120km south-west of Zurich. The main international gateway airport is Zurich (ZCH) and the recommended mode of travel from the airport to the ski resort is by train.

Jungfrau’s ski resorts are connected to the rest of Switzerland by a wonderful railway system via Interlaken. Trains from Zurich go via Bern to Interlaken Ost in a round 2hr, or via the scenic route through Lucerne in around 3hr. All train journeys from Interlaken Ost into the resort via Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald are included in the Jungfrau Ski Region lift pass. Trains also connect the two valleys of the ski area via the eye-popping high pass at Kleine Scheidegg below the Eiger.

Anyone driving to the Jungfrau region & staying in the villages of Wengen or Muerren, should note that both villages are car-free & vehicles need to be parked at Lauterbrunnen. The journey can only be completed by train to Wengen or combination cable car & train to Mürren.

Jungfrau Accommodation

The Jungfrau ski region has a plethora of hotel, apartment, guesthouse and mountain hut lodging options. Variety at Jungfrau is the best part, now the hard part - choose where to stay. Luckily, with trains and cable cars linking all the villages across the vast resort, it doesn't really matter where you rest your head. The choices include Interlaken, Grindelwald & Lauterbrunnen down in the valleys, Wengen & Muerren on the sunny terraces or in the high alpine at Kleine Scheidegg. Access to the ski slopes is quickest from the later.

The transport base of Interlaken is central to the entire ski area & can be cheaper than in the resort villages. The town has everything from 5-star grand hotels to the sensational Interlaken Youth Hostel right next to the Interlaken Ost railway station.

From Interlaken Ost, the deep valley at Lauterbrunnen village provides more 'low elevation' lodgings & services, albeit in a spectacular cliff & waterfall setting & with varying degrees of winter sun.

Perched on the alpine terraces high above the Lauterbrunnen valley, the villages of Wengen & Mürren have beautiful accommodation options coupled with direct access to ski lifts & slopes. Both villages are car free & can only be accessed via skis, cable car & train in winter. On the western side of the valley, Muerren is best placed if intending to ski the steeps off The Schilthorn for a few days.

On the eastern side of the Lauterbrunnen valley, car-free Wengen  village has direct ski lift access to the sunny Männlichen ski area, as well as its own novice slopes & lifts. Access is via the train Accommodation is Swiss ‘old-world’ chic. Return trails & a train can be utilised to get back to Wengen after a long day in the Grindelwald-Wengen section of the Jungfrau ski region.

Mountain huts on the sunny ski slopes of Grindelwald First plus the high alpine pass at Kleine Scheidegg, provide quiet ski-in ski-out accommodation, perfect for first tracks.

Grindelwald is the final town in the region. A well-developed tourist enclave in a beautiful valley between the ski area’s of Männlichen, Kleine Scheidegg & Grindelwald First, Grindelwald has lodging options for every taste & budget plus some excellent skiing access via rail or gondola to boot! Grindelwald is directly connected to Interlaken Ost & Kleine Scheidegg by train.

Jungfrau Activities

If the fabulous skiing, views, food & fun are not enough, or if your group includes those of the avowed non-sliding variety, Jungfrau has more non-ski activities than most ski areas in the world. The train journeys alone are a full day out. A full round journey to the Jungfrau Sphinx observatory via Wengen & Grindelwald from Interlaken is the adventure of a lifetime for many visitors to the area. In fact, many trains have far more tourists than skiers on any sunny winter’s morning.

The mountains have some amazing cliff walks, 100km of gorgeous winter walking trails & over 50km of sledding (sledging/rodelbahn/tobogganing) trails. If you don’t ski but are prepared for a bit of fun, the sledding trails are so good, it is possible to go faster than a skier. At full tilt we got passed by several sledders coming down into Wengen.

Nearby Interlaken has most of the evening action in the form of night-time ice skating, casinos & a few rowdy bars. Also, after dark there is always some great dining & live entertainment to be enjoyed in the mountain villages.
