Is it fine to take todllers to Jungfrau

Hello

We have a baby aged 2yrs, 3 months.
Will he be allowed to borad the train to jungfrau?
is it fine to take him?
(When we visited zermatt, he was just 1 yr old and he was not allowed to go above 3000mtrs due to low pressure and reduced oxygen at high altitude of kelin matterhorn)

Re: Is it fine to take todllers to Jungfrau

I've never been there myself, let alone with a toddler, but I googled it for you.

Their website (check it out, it's in English!) recommends that children under 2 should not sleep at above 2500m altitude, but says that short visits are not a problem. Since yours is over 2 I reckon he would be allowed in any case.

Re: Is it fine to take todllers to Jungfrau

Make sure you take full snow gear including waterproof shoes, and a pram that can be easily folded. There are stairs and un-heated areas of the building, as well as an ice palace, and the main viewing area that is heating can be very crowded, and hard to have a pram with you. They may also need to come out of the pram on the train...there is a series of trains and each one gets colder as you go up... We went mid-summer and it was about 1-5 degrees up the top on the glacier, pure sunshine and the only one who got miserable was one of the 8 year old children who did not have waterproof shoes and her feet got snow, ice then very wet and cold...

You don't want to go up and pay all that money unless the weather is really great. Check the webcam when you go up to make sure there is some visibility...

This, of course, is the basic rule for going to viewpoints. A long and expensive trip to see the inside of a cloud is not my idea of a well spent day!

I would go further and suggest not going unless the visibility is excellent.
