Travelling on JB's trains:

The Jungfrau Railway/The Jungfraubahn (JB) runs between Kleine Scheidegg station and Europe’s highest station, Jungfraujoch.

JB trains follow a route mainly in tunnel through the Monch and Eiger mountains, but what makes the Jungfraubahn unique, aside from its height, is that the Eigerwand and Eismeer stations have glass windows cut into the sides of the mountain.

The trains make extended stops at both stations, so you can leave the train to make the most of the breath taking views.

Connections:

Kleine Scheidegg station is served by WAB trains from/to both Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen.

Both Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen are linked to Interlaken Ost station (which has direct trains from/to Basel, Bern and Luzern) by BOB trains.

So the journey between Interlaken Ost and Jungfraujoch involves;

(1) a journey by BOB train between Interlaken Ost and either Grindelwald OR Lauterbrunnen
(2) a journey by WAB train between either Grindelwald OR Lauterbrunnen and Kleine Scheidegg.
(3) a journey by JB train from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch.

So the best option is to travel to Kleine Scheidegg via Grindelwald and return via Lauterbrunnen (or vice versa).

the tickets:

Tickets and details of journeys between Interlaken Ost/ Kleine Scheidegg and Jungfraujoch are available on the ‘Jungfrau Top Of Europe’ website.

Tickets between Interlaken Ost and Jungfraujoch include the journeys on the BOB, WAB and JB trains.

Though before booking tickets, it’s worth checking the weather forecasts and the live weather cameras on The Top Of Europe website, there’s little point in travelling on the Jungfraubahn, if the visibility is poor.

If the weather is poor in Interlaken there may be opportunities to look down on the clouds from the summit.

Be aware that a comparatively high price has to be paid for journeys on the JB trains.
Cost per km this is a contender for Europe's most expensive train service

Tickets between SBB stations and Jungfraujoch can be booked on the SBB booking service.

Using rail passes:

If you will be travelling with a Swiss Travel Pass, a Swiss Day Pass or InterRail and Eurail passes valid in Switzlerland you can purchase tickets at a 25% discount, so only pay 75% of the journey price.
These rail pass tickets can be purchased at the travel desks at Interlaken Ost or Kleine Scheidegg stations.
