Having to skip Jungfrau due to bad weather
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I would love more time in the Jungfrau region, and time to take a day trip to Bern!
Anything go wrong during the trip?
It's hard to predict the weather so unfortunately, I didn't go up to Jungfrau but went up to Schilthorn instead.
How was the food?
Co-op - the supermarket - is your best friend in Switzerland to keep your trip under budget! Eating out in Switzerland is expensive.
What tips would you give a friend?
Download the Swiss Train app to check the train time, you can also set reminders for getting off and changing lines. I also planned my trip meticulously to make sure that I don't miss out on anything.
Definitely pack for warm and hot weather even in the summer. It was 0 degree celcius when I went up to Schilthorn!
Get a Swiss Travel Train Pass - this saves you so much money and many attractions become free or 50% off.
Schilthorn was a nice surprise - it wasn't on my radar but I was happy to visit it since Jungfrau wasn't an option (it's also cheaper).
Even the end of summer is a busy time in Switzerland, so definitely book your accommodations in advance.
