Lauterbrunnen Travel Tips & Suggestions

Far from the crowds lies the vilage of Lauterbrunnen -- much more charming than the city of Interlaken. You do not need to spend much time in Lauterbrunnen itself, as the waterfall will take you one hour maximum. But it's a perfect base to spend some days in this area, where there's a lot of things to do -- river rafting, canyoning, just walking, going with the bahn to Jungfraujoch, and much more. Best part of Switzerland if you have a few days and want to do a lot.

I have visited this most amazingly beautiful and spectacular place three times and I'm heading back for a fourth time in October 2006. You should visit this place at least once in your lifetime.
Beautiful, serene, charming, breathtaking -- go to Lauterbrunnen! Skip Interlaken with all its expensive adventure stuff and spend some time hiking around Lauterbrunnen. You won't regret your time here. You will leave refreshed and full of good cheese and chocolate.
Do not miss it! It was the loveliest place we visited!
I've visited Lauterbrunnen twice and am captivated by this town and its amazing setting. One of my top five favorite natural setting in the world. In the fall the constant sound of the many waterfalls was very serene. In the winter this place was even more beautiful. The second time without the rain I was able to see the surrounding mountain tops. It rains here a lot. That's what makes it so lush and green. So bring your umbrella along with your camera with plenty of film. Both visits I took the train up to the town of Wengen. From there you have great views of the valley and the town of Lauterbrunnen far below. Wengen with it's lack of cars is also wonderful. In the winter people are skiing through the town and there goes grandma pulling the grandchildren in the sled home. The entire valley is a beautiful place that ignites those dreams of "what if I lived here...."
Visiting Schilthorn was the highlight of our stay - we went on a funicular, a train and a cable car and were amazed by the fantastic views when we came out of the top of the clouds. And it's cheaper than the Jungfrau trip!!
