About this location

The Jungfrau Region

Lauterbrunnen is a 15 minute train journey from Interlaken and 40 minutes from the capital Bern. The village is connected by cog train and cablecar to the surrounding Alpine villages of Murren and Wengen, There are miles of clearly marked walking and hiking paths all over the region. The Valley is truly unique with its towering walls and massive Waterfalls, it provides for breathtaking views all round. In winter, all activities are at your doorstep, Lauterbrunnen is situated between the ski areas of Murren Schilthorn and Wengen Kleine Scheidegg so both are equally accessible.


The Lauterbrunnen Valley is the largest glacial 'U' shaped valley in the world. It is a little known fact that the author JRR Tolkien journeyed here in 1925 and apon seeing this magical valley, he never forgot it. It became the inspiration for 'Rivendell' home of the Elves in his book 'Lord of the Rings'. Indeed nothing has changed, the views are still breathtaking, the natural beauty unspoilt. There are miles of clearly marked walking and hiking trails on either side of the valley in summer and in winter the skiing options are many; Schilthorn with its famous James Bond revolving restaurant, and Wengen with its renowned Lauberhorn Race on the worldcup curcuit in January. For non skiers, there are also winter walking and snow shoe trails, and plenty of restaurants to relax in and enjoy real Swiss tradition. Lauterbrunnen itself houses some excellent restaurants and cafes, as well as sport shops for ski rental and booking offices.

"A wonderful week!"

We spent a wonderful week in Heather and Tony's lovely apartment and enjoyed every minute of it. Waking up to the views of the Alps and the waterfalls in the Lauterbrunnen valley was just magical. Heather went out of her way to accomodate us and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to spend some time in this area. A definite thumbs up!
