Transport of material to Jungfraujoch
Hand luggage with the following maximum dimensions: width 1,2 m / length 1,6 m / height 1.25 m can be taken into the Eiger Express and in the Jungfrau Railway by yourself.
However, it is strictly forbidden to take dangerous goods (as flammable liquids and pressure vessels) into the Eiger Express and into the Jungfrau Railway by yourself.
Transports of material that is not within the maximum mass or of dangerous goods (gas cylinders, etc.) must be handled by Jungfrau Railways. Such transports are only made twice a week: Tuesday and Thursday. These transports are very early in the morning – so if you plan to send dangerous goods to Jungfraujoch or to the valley, please contact Jungfrau Railways at least 48 hours in advance to ensure that your material will be delivered on time.
