Winter in Lauterbrunnen: Lauterbrunnen is in the middle of the Jungfrau Ski Region. On the right side of the valley, is the ski region of Mürren/Schilthorn, easily accessible by new cable car (Dec 06) from Lauterbrunnen. The train to the ski region of Wengen / Männlichen / Kleine Scheidegg / Grindelwald, on the left side, also departs from Lauterbrunnen. All of these trains are included in the sports pass.

The world-famous panorama of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau can be seen from almost every spot in the Jungfrau Ski Region. 44 trains, cable cars, chair- and ski lifts bring you up to 213 km of ski piste. But it's not only for skiing, the hills offer 50 km of sledging pleasure, 100 km hiking and cross-country skiing. For non skiers a hike and sledge pass is available for 2 or more consecutive days at a reduced price. Snowshoe trekking is also available. In Sulwald, above Isenfluh, is a well marked Snowshoe path (approx. 2 h).

Paragliding and Heli-Skiing are also available.

Spring/Summer in Lauterbrunnen: In Spring and Summer time, there are infinite possibilities for hiking and mountain biking and, of course the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are always in view! All abilities are well catered for. In addition, there is White Water Rafting, Paragliding, Base and Bungee Jumping and Mountaineering all in the surrounding areas. Sailing is available on the lakes at Interlaken (Thun and Brienz) with the stunning backdrop of the mountains.

Summer sporting highlights include the Inferno Triathlon (Thun - Schilthorn) and Inferno Half-Marathon (Lauterbrunnen - Schilthorn), in mid-August and Jungfrau-Marathon (Interlaken - Lauterbrunnen - Kleine Scheidegg), at the beginning of September with the runners being visible from the balcony. There is also summer sledging available for the children at Pfingstegg (Grindelwald).

Out and about: The revolving restaurant at the top of the Schiltorn should not be missed, neither should the view from Winteregg. There are also lovely cafes and bars locally and in Gridelwald and Interlaken. More contemporary eating places are available in Thun. There are great cycle trails and hiking paths for all abilities so why not try the Eiger trail or just a gentle stroll by the river? Or take the bikes up to Mürren and cycle back down to Lauterbrunnen valley with the same breathtaking views. Excellent local produce is available such as cheese and hams and bread. Why not have fun with a Swiss Fondue. The lakes and Interlaken are only 8 miles away and have several lidos and beaches and together with the pool in Lauterbrunnen and the Alpine centre in Mürren, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the water. The helicopter station is 300m away. A trip over the snow covered Eiger at any time of year is truly amazing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were in Switzerland for a week's holiday in May 2012 and stayed at the Jarvis apartment. The location is beautiful and being surrounded by mountains and waterfalls makes a stellar setting. The apartment is spacious, cozy and well appointed. The huge collection of DVDs for children were a treat for our kids.



The hosts were warm and friendly right from the time of making the enquiry. Heidi was very prompt with responding to emails which made our communication ever so easy. We were quite impressed with how they kept in touch with us even after we got back home from our holiday.



There are a lot of activities in the Lauterbrunnen valley that are worth exploring. It was also a good point from which we got around seeing different parts of the country. The local bus stop is just a few yards from the apartment which makes for easy getting around.



We had a wonderful time with great memories to cherish and the apartment was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

Here is some of the feedback we have received from our guests: 'We thought the apartment was beautiful. It had everything we needed and it is beautifully furnished. We actually don't think the pictures on the Holiday Rentals website do it justice: they make it look quite plain.'
'Thanks for helping us have a holiday that we will never forget' ' You must have worked so hard to get the flat just right and obviously gave lots of creature comforts to make people feel at home.' 'The situation of the flat and views were fantastic. The balcony was lovely and wide, and my parents were able to relax and drink in the views to their heart's content'

Beautiful Property in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful apartment in a wonderful location.
We had a great week skiing the Jungfrau region, which was helped by the great location of this apartment. Ski / local bus stop immediately opposite the apartments complex - approx 5 minute trip to Lauterbrunnen train station for the cable car to Murren or the easy train trip up to Wengen or Grindelwald.
The apartment is beautiful. More lovely than the pictures, with THE most gorgeous view from the balcony. Everything really sparkling clean. Appliances, furniture, beds etc all modern and very comfortable.
Plenty of hot water for those baths / showers after skiing.
WiFi, DVD, Sat TV all worked perfectly, which the kids particularly appreciated.
Owner was more than helpful - lots of info beforehand, and the local agent was very friendly and full of assistance.
Fully recommend.
PS do not hesitate considering taking the train to this apartment in Lauterbrunnen - very easy from either Geneva, Zurich or even Basel airports.

Simply the Best Apartment with the Best view!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful apartment was spotless clean and the beds were so comfy! The kitchen had everything we needed and even more. The 2 bathrooms were very convenient for a family of 5.
The apartment building was quite and although there were people in other apartments you could not hear anything.
The proximity to the camping area was Great as we could just walk pass the wooden bridge to the grocery shop and the restaurant.
We were so amazed and happy to wake up each morning and see the wonderful view while eating breakfast!
(This view is my screensaver now)
Thank you for the wonderful place!
Can't wait to come back!

Beautiful location and modern amenities

  • 5 of 5
This proporty has all the modern amenities that one would require for family vacation. Well located, not too far from Rail Station with Bus stop just outside complex (and buses every 30 min.) and 20 min train ride away from Interlaken from where you can catch connections to all places in Switzerland. Its ideal for family vacation and surrounded by great natural beauty (cliffs, Eiger, Waterfalls)...just amzaing. Owners were very coordial and also helped us in our overall planning.

Fantastic winter holiday

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous property,spectacular location and views from lounge and balcony. Apartment spacious and warm and comfortably accommodated 7 of us. Furnishings were of high quality and apartment is beautifully decorated , kitchen has every conceivable gadget. Beds were the most comfortable we have slept in. Garage was really useful for storing our sledges while the ski room was ideal for skis and boots. We have been visiting Lauterbrunnen for the past 11 years and this was by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. Many thanks to David and Heidi for their prompt replies to our e mails and the ease of the booking and transaction .Cant wait to return and would definitely recommend to our friends and family.

A perfect base to explore the Jungfrau region all year round, Lauterbrunnen is situated near the most impressive glaciated valley of the Alps. Lauterbrunnen means 'many fountains' and throughout the entire valley, a total of 72 waterfalls cascade from the mountains. There are also the spectacular Trümmelbach waterfalls. These glacier falls (10 in total inside of a mountain) attract many people from all over the world to the mountains from April to November (closed during winter). Lauterbrunnen is the departing point to the more famous, car-free resorts of Wengen and Mürren, as well as the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe (the highest train station in Europe) and the Schilthorn/Piz Gloria. There are superb train links to Interlaken (45m from Bern, 2 h Basel 2.5h Zurich/ Geneva) so a car is not essential. If travelling by car, good road links to the French motorway network mean a comfortable 9 hours from Calais or Zeebrugge. Eurostar via Paris is also an option.

Other Activities: White water rafting, shooting

Ski: Lauterbrunnen is a great base to explore the Jungfrau Ski Region. There are 45 mountain trains, cable cars, chair and ski lifts, with 213km of pistes for skiers and boarders. Also 100km of winter hiking and X-country paths, and 50km of sledge runs. From the apartment you can take the bus to Lauterbrunnen station in 5 minutes, then train to access skiing above Wengen, or take bus to Schilthorn cable car in 7 minutes to access Mürren skiing .Grindelwald can be reached from Kleine Scheidegg (wonderful views) or drive there in 20 minutes. For the adventurous skier there is the Lauberhorn run above Wengen, or the wonderful 16km long run from the top of the Schilthorn back to Lauterbrunnen, rated as one of the best runs in the world with stunning views, by the Daily Mail Ski and Snowboard magazine. The Sunday Times chose the pistes at Mürren as having some of the best scenery in the world. Excellent English-speaking ski-schools are based in Wengen and Mürren.
