The chalet is in the middle of the village but set back from the street in its own 1/2 acre garden.

There are 3 hotels with restaurants 1/3 minutes walk from the chalet. The bus to Stechelberg/Schilthorn cable car is just accross the street.

A baker, butcher, dairy, Internet corner and laundrette are all within 1 minutes walk. On the way to the station are a Coop shop, banks and post office. The stations to Wengen/Kleine Scheidegg (famous for the longest men's World Cup downhill ski race) and to Murren are 4 minutes walk.

For the younger at heart, there is a pub/disco nearby.

All flats have a satellite TV and parking space. WiFi is available for a small fee.

Interlaken is 20 minutes away where there is the new Mystery Theme Park.

Winter Resort details: The Jungfrau Skipass covers both sides of the valley and also the Grindelwald ski lifts. Under the towering mountains of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau there are 125 miles of ski runs suitable for beginners to advanced skiers. Some slopes extend to 7 miles. There is a choice of 45 mountain railways, cablecars and skilifts. Also 60 miles of well-prepared hiking paths. There is a special pass for non-skiers.

Summer details: Lauterbrunnen is an excellent starting point for trips to the Jungfraujoch (the highest railway and restaurant in Europe) and Schilthorn. There are also many miles of well signposted hiking trails. It is 8 miles from Interlaken, the town between the lakes of Brienz and Thun. There is a swimming-pool, tennis courts and mini-golf in the village. There are organised tours to the mountain huts on the Alp to see how they make cheese. The village has local lace-makeing and a Pottery.

A James Bond breakfast is served on the top of the Schilthorn made famous by the film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'.

The chalet is 8 miles from the newly opened 'Jungfrau Park' in Interlaken. This is a theme park to suit all ages.

General Information: Lauterbrunnen is also easily reached by train from Zürich and Geneva airports. There are special Swiss rail concessions that can be bought in your own country. The rail service is excellent and a car is not really necessary.

I am English and I came skiing and married a mountain guide

and ski instructor. We built the chalet in 1963. He died many years ago and I stayed in this lovely valley.

Teresa Staeger purchased this apartment in 1963

It is ideally situated in the middle of the village but off the street in its own garden.

Lovely apartments in Lauterbrunnen

We were 3 couples traveling together and we rented 3 apartments in this cute little chalet owned by Teresa. The apartments were cozy and well appointed. We liked the proximity to Main Street of Lauterbrunnen. A little noise from train that ran in back of the property but not really a nuisance to us. The beds were comfortable and we loved having a little kitchen area with refrig, etc. The bathrooms were typical European mid sized. Teresa was helpful at check=in and the stay went real well. We would certainly recommend these apartments and would not hesitate to return.

Great Apartment and Location

We stayed at the Studio apt for 8 nights and just loved it. It was very centrally located in Lauterbrunnen, just minutes from the train station. Grocery, laundry, bakery all just a 2 minute walk away. You can easily get to anywhere in the Berner Oberland area from right here. There is also parking on site if needed.

The studio apartment was perfect for the two of us. Very comfortable beds, great kitchen supplies for basic meals, clothesline and drying rack for those who are on the road a bit longer, and super quiet. The view is great from all the windows and there is a lovely little patio area with table and chairs to sit and relax.

Theresa, the owner, lives on site so that is a plus. She is there to welcome you and answer any questions you might have, and Chico (Theresa's small dog) is there to welcome you back from your daily activities.

We found the rates to be extremely reasonable. We didn't have to eat out at all, We cooked all our meals right in the apt. It's truly the way to stay on a budget on vacation.

Lauterbrunnen was definitely a highpoint of our trip due to the fact that we could come back to our own little space at the end of every day and relax.

We just loved it and will definitely be back.
Thank you Theresa.

Yes, we keep returning to Chalet Horner and each visit seems to be getting longer and longer! The Studio is an ideal base for both winter and summer holidays, well placed for access to the area and local amenities, with great views of the mountains and valley. Facilities are good throughout and, although the kitchen is small, it isn't a problem preparing meals even for 3 people.
Teresa is very welcoming and helpful to new and returning guests.

A Good Apartment

Please refer to my longer review of the Lauberhorn unit for additional details.

We have stayed at Chalet Horner 9 of the last 10 summers for a week or more, and we have plans to be there again in July.

The Studio unit was the first one we used, and we were in it again last summer. It is a very quiet place that is very suitable for the two of us.

This year we were able to find the Lauberhorn unit vacant during our planned visit. Therefore we decided we would try it.

Needless to say, our repeated visits should be an unqualified endorsement of Chalet Horner.
