Kleine Scheidegg, Jungfrau Region
(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Kleine Scheidegg is a railway station that is situated on the summit of the Kleine Scheidegg Pass in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. The pass houses a complex of hotels and railway buildings. Administratively, the station is in the municipality of Lauterbrunnen in the canton of Bern.The station is on the Wengernalpbahn (WAB), whose trains operate to Kleine Scheidegg from Lauterbrunnen via Wengen, and separately from Grindelwald. It is also the lower terminus of the Jungfraubahn (JB), whose trains climb within the Eiger to the Jungfraujoch. All passengers travelling to the Jungfraujoch, or between Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald, must change trains at the station.WAB trains from Lauterbrunnen enter the station at its western end, and from Grindelwald at its eastern end, but no through trains are operated. This is principally because of the need, for safety reasons, to have each train's motorcar or locomotive at its downhill end. The WAB tracks at Kleine Scheidegg includes a, partially underground, wye track to allow trains to be reversed, but this is not used for trains in passenger service.The WAB and JB use different rail gauges, different electrification systems and different rack railway technology, and are not physically connected. The depot of the JB is located at Kleine Scheidegg, but not the line's workshops. These are located at Eigergletscher station, one stop up the line.

  • This town has a railway station. Here are lots of walks. I aimed at the summit station of the men lichen, but healed in a peaceful atmosphere. It was downright Switzerland scenery with cattle grazing.

  • At the base at Lauterbrunnen, you can take a 40 mins train to the top to enjoy the view. At the top, you can rent a sledge for 10 CHF to play with the slopes if you like. 
  • Very nice place, the food must had been good but did bot try it. Talking about the one restaurant in the middle of the ski courses. We got Gluhwein that we did not appreciate much as we ve had much be...  more »

  • The views were incredible and some good food to be had
  • The scenery may not be as dramatic and majestic as jungfraujoch but it is more relaxed, pleasing and beautiful as it combines close prairies with cows and faraway rock mountains.
  • Definitely worth the visit. The train loop from Interlaken via Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald is a great ride. Don't forget to visit Schynige Platte as well from Wilderswil. This train trip is even better!
  • Perfect little train station and start places for exploration of the Alps. The cog train makes for a great trip up!
  • A hub for skiing, Jungfraubahn (train to Jungfraujoch) and many more activities. If you have time, you can spend an hour here to roam around - many great spots for photography.
