Take the cogwheel railway to the Kleine Scheidegg or the cable car to the Mürren side? At Lauterbrunnen you can decide spontaneously. Nestled between giant rock faces, the location is ideal for hiking and as a starting point for numerous day trips. If you are treating yourself to an overnight stay, you will awake to the sound of one of the 72 waterfalls.
Via Bern or Lucerne to Interlaken-Ost. Change to the Berner Oberland-Bahn to Lauterbrunnen.
Via Bern or Lucerne to Interlaken. Or from the south, via the Grimsel Pass (summer only) or the Simplon Pass and the Lötschberg car-transport train to Interlaken. Then follow the signs to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen.
Poetic, dramatic, thunderous 72 waterfalls in the most beautiful U-shaped valley in the Alps.
The airtime cafe. The coolest café in the area. Meeting point for the basejump scene.
We also have cows in Illinois, of course, but they don't wear bells. Our state is absolutely flat. That's why I'm very impressed by the mountainous landscape here and by the waterfalls in particular.
The people are so hospitable
It has always been my dream to visit the Swiss mountains. Lauterbrunnental and the white peaks are truly impressive. And the people here are so hospitable.
So much water – wonderful
I enjoy the fresh air and the fantastic views of the snowy mountains and waterfalls. In Israel, water is rare. To see so much of it is simply wonderful.
The people here laugh often
The landscape is very beautiful. The people here laugh often and well. Switzerland is, for me, the number one travel destination. It was a good idea to come here.
