Things to Do in Lauterbrunnen

The tiny village of Lauterbrunnen is one of Switzerland’s untouched beauties. Its quiet roads wind between quaint communities, a picturesque town center, and breathtaking natural wonders, like the famous Staubbach and Trummelbach Falls. It’s the perfect place to explore on foot and friendly locals warmly welcome those visiting from out of town.

Travelers can sip steaming hot cups of coffee and sample rich Swiss chocolates made fresh at the family-owned shops that line the streets of Lauterbrunnen before venturing out into the village. More adventurous sorts can rent Interlaken bikes and ride through the scenic trails of Murren and Winteregg or hike up to Wengwald, where panoramic views of the Lauterbrunnen valley offer a memorable end to an easy two-hour trek.

Jungfrau
35 Tours and Activities

The Jungfraujoch is a saddle between the mountains Monch and Jungfrau in the Swiss Alps. It is known as the Top of Europe and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From here you look down upon the ice wilderness of swirling glaciers and across at 13,000 ft (4,000 m) high mountain turrets. On top of the Jungfrau is a global atmospheric monitoring station.

Visiting the Jungfraujoch's eternal ice and snow is a once in a lifetime experience as the annual two million visitors can attest. Riding the narrow cog railway to 11,300 ft (3,454 m) is a must. On the journey you pass by the foot of the notorious Eiger North Wall, through tunnels, past polar dog kennels, finally arriving at the heart of the glaciers. The longest glacier in Europe, the Great Aletsch Glacier - 14 miles (23km) - begins at Jungfraujoch, and you can see as far as France and Germany.
