Lauterbrunnen is located in an impressive valley amid the Swiss Alps, sandwiched between gigantic rock walls with unique waterfalls and awesome mountain peaks. Lauterbrunnen is the base for trips up to the Jungfraujoch and the Schilthorn, and for outings to the raging Staubbach and Trümmelbach waterfalls. Hiking routes invite visitors to embark on beautiful tours in summer; in winter, you can choose between the Wengen-Kleine Scheidegg and Mürren-Schilthorn skiing areas. There are also well-groomed toboggan runs and cross-country skiing trails. In addition, the pretty villages of Stechelberg, Mürren, Gimmelwald, Isenfluh and Wengen are well worth a visit.
