Another question I have is, how cold does it get on Schilthorn or on Jungfrau?

We went up to Jungfraujoch in early July, and we were glad to have a nice warm sweater. The temperature outside on the observation tower wasn't much more than 4 or 5 degrees, and very windy. However, down on the glacier, it went up to about 20 whenever the sun came out (I spent my time pulling my sweater on and off). I'd imagine it gets ever-more winterlike as the year progresses. And don't forget your sunglasses! I had to share mine after my boyfriend started asking why the sled dogs were green.

We didn't see the Schilthorn, but it was snowless in July, so I expect it's always a bit warmer that Jungfrau. You can also see live footage and temperature info for Interlaken mountains here.

Thanks for the weather information.

Some people recommended Schilthorn earlier, I looked it up on https://www.sbb.ch, but couldn't find how to get there....

Any hotel/hostel/train station will show you exactly how to get to any of the peaks by train and cable car from Interlaken. They'll provide you with this map, which will get you to wherever you want to go.

Just to get back to you, Tway is right, the map she linked to is what you get everywhere in the region. In the swiss flexi pass we got there was a map showing what rail/cable cars it gives you full fare on and 50% discount on.

The main thing with the flexi pass is it gives you the number of travel days in a month period. ie the three days can be used at any time in the month. It is better for if you travel on a set number of days and stay put on the non travel days. The other pass is for a set period of time to be used. This link explains it a little bit more

I wore a t shirt up the schilthorn which was fine in the sun, but put a jacket on later when the sun was getting lower on the horizon. if it is cloudy or windy then a jacket will definately be needed in November time.
