Where can I order a trail map/train map of Jungfrau region?

Hi- can someone tell me how I can obtain a hiking trail map and a train map of the Jungfrau region? I see them online at it says they can be purchased for 2.50 CHF at any train station, but I would like to get one now before departure. Help?

Can't help with your main question, but this free downloadable rail map of Switzerland may help:

Don't know which hiking trail map exactly you're refering to - the price sounds very small to me, I doubt it is very detailed.

I found several panoramic maps with hiking trails online, for example this one of the Mürren/Schilthorn side of the Lauterbrunnen valley:

However, I highly recommend to buy a more detailed map. The Tourist offices published some (I have one in scale 1:40 000 of the Jungfrau region, price was CHF 15), but the best are "Landeskarte der Schweiz" (by official authorities, like this: http://das-landkartenhaus.de/1228-La...rkarte-Schweiz) or from Kümmerly & Frey.

Or from Amazon, a map by Hallwag:

Jungfrau Magazine is available free of charge at any train station info counter, tourist office, hotel desks - it shoes every trail and grades them with three colors from easy to hard - shows all transport lines too - maybe on line.
