Lauterbrunnen Apartment Rental Photos and Description

It has open plan living accommodation, and is furnished to the highest quality throughout. The well equipped kitchen has granite worktops, soft close cupboard doors and glass splash back.

There is an outdoor table with two chairs. The living area has two large Lombok sofas, 32' flat screen TV with cable network, DVD player (with a selection of DVDs) and iPod/iPhone music docking station. The apartment also has free WiFi. The large bedroom has a reclaimed teak kingsized bed with White Company bedding. On the ground floor there is a ski/boot storage room for use by guests. The apartment has a designated undercover parking space.

Winter.: Lauterbrunnen is ideally situated to access the ski areas of Murren, Wengen and Grindelwald. The transport network is also ideal for non-skiers wishing to meet family and friends for lunch, or to access the whole area. There are other Winter activities to be enjoyed, including snowboarding, ice skating, ice hockey, curling, Nordic walking, sledging on designated trails, including the World's longest above Grindelwald which is 16.5 kilometres. In addition there are more than 100 kilometres of well-prepared winter walking paths, cross country skiing, snow-shoe trekking, ice climbing, and paragliding. Open-air ice rinks can be found in Murren and Wengen.

Spring, Summer and Autumn: The Lauterbrunnen valley is breathtaking at all times of the year. It is famous for its' numerous waterfalls cascading down the 300 metre high sheer cliffs. They are particularly impressive in Spring, when the valley floor is carpeted in alpine flowers. In Summer, hiking tends to be the main activity, and there are many well sign-posted trails which can be enjoyed, whatever you ability. For the more adventurous, there are several 'via ferrata' in the area and endless opportunities for some serious mountaineering and rock climbing. Summers can be hot, and other activities include swimming (pools in Lauterbrunnen and Wengen), and water sports on the beautiful nearby lakes of Thun and Brienz. Other activities include tennis, mountain biking, paragliding and parachuting (tandem flights available) and folklore/cultural events. If you tire of being active, relaxing on the balcony enjoying the spectacular view of the valley, or enjoying a meal at a lakeside restaurant is the perfect way to spend your time in Switzerland.

Local amenities: Lauterbrunnen provides a range of facilities and services, including train station, hotel restaurants, banks with ATM, ski and outdoor clothing shops, a small supermarket, baker, butcher with local produce, wine and cheese shop, and a picturesque church.

Locally produced cheeses and fresh eggs are offered for sale at several farms in the valley.

LUXURY LODGING AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE...

  • 5 of 5
This apartment does not disappoint. In fact, the listing undersells how fabulous the place is. Lauterbrunnen has a special place in the heart of our family. We've been several times, and have always stayed at Camping Jungfrau. This time we decided to research places in the village, and when we found the listing for the penthouse we were certain we would be comfortable and enjoy our stay. We ended up loving the place so much that we will surely return the next time we visit Lauterbrunnen.

The apartment decor is high end, with super comfy couches for relaxing after a day of hiking. Meals are spent out on the patio, with para gliders and the snow covered mountains as the backdrop to a wonderful meal. You're guaranteed a great nights sleep in the bed, with linens that are soft and inviting. If you need an extra blanket the bed has a warm furry blanket that is great for bedtime or just cuddling on the couch. You can literally unpack your bags and feel like you are home in this perfect apartment.

The kitchen is better than well stocked and makes meal prep a snap. The appliances are high end and the convection oven makes baking a snap. We dined in all days but one, and we never lacked for cooking tools in the place. The owners have thought of everything.

We happened to stay at the apartment during the World Cup, so having television set up with English channels was a real treat. And, the wifi is an added bonus that let's you stay connected while affording you the ability to research excursions before you venture out. The location is absolutely perfect for setting out to explore the village or the valley.

We also very much appreciated the in-unit washer and dryer. It made check out day easy, as we moved on to our next holiday stop with clean laundry...a real plus!

Can't say enough about this apartment. We would (and will) book again.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for one week in this apartment. It is just as advertised. It has everything you need to feel at home. The location is perfect for exploring the Jungfrau region. We had a car but one would not be necessary as the apartment is within walking distance of the train station. We spent the next week in the French region of the country and although it was beautiful too, nothing could compare with the scenery in the Lauterbrunnen valley and the surrounding mountains, towns and villages. We could easily have spent our entire 2 1/2 week vacation there and never tired of it.

WE WERE SAD TO LEAVE AND WE’LL DEFINITELY BE BACK!

  • 5 of 5
We’re from Australia and have stayed in many apartments throughout France and Italy but this one was definitely a stand out.

I can certainly promise that the photos of the apartment don’t do it justice – expect what you see in the photos and more.

We stayed for a week at the end of June and only wished we were able to stay longer. The apartment really felt like our home during the stay. There was so much to see and do in the area but it was always such a comfort to come home to the apartment. The views from the apartment are breathtaking. You’ll have to see it to believe it.

The apartment had everything we needed, fully furnished kitchen - we cooked everyday of our stay. Washer and dryer. The water pressure from the shower head is amazing. The "guest book" provided was extremely useful, it made us feel welcome from the very start.

Our whole stay could not have been possible without Michael; he was so accommodating, helpful and patient with the whole booking process. We can’t thank him enough.

I don’t think I can recommend the apartment enough. We hope to visit again and there’s no other place we’d rather stay.

WONDERFUL STAY IN LAUTERBRUNNEN

  • 5 of 5
We strongly recommend this apartment. We stayed for 6 nights in August, and enjoyed every minute. The apartment itself looks just like in the pictures, and the maintenance/cleanness level is such that It looks like it's brand new. We were actually quite surprised to see that there are reviews here from 3 years back. We were there with our 2-year old, and we all felt very much like home. The apartment also has a nice balcony with a great view which we enjoyed every morning. The kitchen is FULLY equipped and we also found a nice collection of DVDs and books (including travel guides and maps) in the living room cabinet.

The location (Lauterbrunnen) is also excellent - short train of driving distance from all the beautiful sites of the area. We used it as our "base" and visited Grindelwald, Jungfrau, Thun, Lucern, and even reached La Gruyere.

Logistics were all very smooth: we were in touch with Michael, and he quickly and efficiently answered all our questions over email. He had also arranged a cot and highchair for our baby, which served us well. We received back the deposit shortly after leaving the apartment.

Overall, highly recommended to anyone who wants to visit this beautiful area.

OUR SPECIAL HOLIDAY IN THE ALPS

  • 5 of 5
Wow! .... This place is everything it advertises and More. My wife and I have stayed in vacation rentals in many countries and this is one of our favorites . We extended our stay here we liked it so much. Every day it was nice to come home to our little apt and cook dinner and relax. We own two vacation rentals in Canada and were very impressed by the professional service from start to finish. Our experience with other inquiries makes this property the exception not the norm in vacation rental properties. Perfect location .....nicely outfitted..... An amazing view every morning from the balcony!! STAY HERE you won't regret it . We will be back. RnV Canada

NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN

  • 5 of 5
Eight days of pure magic: a great apartment, incredible views and clean, crisp air - all this in pristine Alpine surroundings with clear blue skies, rushing rivers and green meadows sprinkled with flowers of all colours.

Michael could not have been more helpful with the booking arrangements - the whole process was easy and efficient and the return of the deposit afterwards prompt. The apartment itself was all one could wish for: a real home away from home with all the mod cons needed for a relaxing stay and a view from the balcony that will remain with us for the rest of our lives.

We feel privileged to have been able to experience such luxury and wish to recommend this property wholeheartedly. Our week and a day there was over all too soon!

The spectacular Lauterbrunnen valley with its dramatic mountain scenery lies at the heart of the Jungfrau region. It is probably the most spectacular glacial valley in Europe. Surrounded by unspoilt beauty, the area is dominated by the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. The valley is the perfect starting point for all year round hiking, and Winter snow sports. The famous 300 metre Staubbach waterfall is near to the property. Lauterbrunnen is ideally situated for accessing the car free resorts of Wengen and Murren, the Jungfraujoch (the highest railway station in Europe) and the revolving restaurant at the summit of the Schilthorn (made famous by the James Bond film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service). Travel time from Calais is approximately 9hrs by car and the airports at Geneva, Basel and Zurich are all within 3 hours. Bern airport is approximately 45 minutes, whilst Interlaken with its' shops and main rail links is 20 minutes away.

Ski: Lauterbrunnen is an ideal location for easy access to the slopes above both sides of the Lauterbrunnen valley. The area lies at the heart of Jungfrau skiing region, with access to Wengen (1274m), Mürren (1650m) and Grindelwald (1034m), with over 213 kilometres of pistes, and over 30 kilometres of cross-country skiing paths. Heli-skiing is available. The famous Lauberhorn FIS World Cup downhill and slalom races are held in Wengen each January. The Inferno downhill race is also held annually in Murren in the week following. The apartment is just a few seconds walk to the ski bus service to Lauterbrunnen station (connection to Wengen by cog train), Murren cable car and the Schilthorn cable car at Stechelberg for access to Murren.To access Grindelwald, you can ski from Kleine Scheidegg on superb long pistes beneath the north face of the Eiger, or if you wish, take the train, Postbus, or if you have a car, drive to the village in about 20 minutes.
