Step by Step Directions
Fuhren - Gadmen – Obermad
Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.
Car: There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.
From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.
If you want more flexibility, drive to Meiringen or Innertkirchen and park the car in a public car park. From there, you can take the Meiringen-Innertkirchen train and the PostBus (Grimseltor exit) to Gadmen.
The town of Meiringen has 835 public parking spaces in the village centre and at the valley station of the Bergbahnen Meiringen-Hasliberg. All parking spaces are regulated daily (Sundays too) by parking meters from 8.00 am to 7.00 pm. The exception is the Casino AEH (car park) which is operated around the clock.
