Welcome to Lauterbrunnen, a charming Swiss village situated in one of the most impressive trough valleys in the Alps.
Lauterbrunnen is known for its high waterfalls, the most famous being the Staubbach Falls. This waterfall is one of the highest free-falling in Europe. A trail leads behind the waterfall, offering a different perspective on the mass of water.
The valley is a starting point for many hikes. There are over 100 kilometers of well-marked trails in the area. The Schilthorn and Jungfraujoch are two of the most popular destinations, accessible via a network of cable cars and mountain trains. The Schilthorn is also known for its revolving restaurant, Piz Gloria, which was featured in a James Bond film.
The Jungfraujoch, often referred to as the 'Top of Europe', is a well known nearby attraction. You can take a cogwheel train to the summit for a spectacular view over the Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier in the Alps.
The local culinary scene is simple, hearty and delicious, featuring Swiss staples such as cheese fondue and 'Rösti', a Swiss potato dish.
The village itself is small with a population of just over 3 000 people. It has an old church and several traditional Swiss wooden houses, their flower boxes a riot of color in the summer months.
In winter months, the nearby resorts of Wengen and Mürren are great skiing and snowboarding options. But Lauterbrunnen is a year-round destination.
