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.

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.

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.

Bern airport is approximately 45 minutes, whilst Interlaken with its' shops and main rail links is 20 minutes away.

The Inferno downhill race is also held annually in Murren in the week following.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful accommodation with fabulous views. Very nice place to come home to after a long day on the mountains. Loved the shower too. Michael responded to all my injuries promptly. Would definitely come back and stay here again.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to find an apartment which is stylish and modern. All kitchen and bathroom fittings, bedding and towels are of good quality and with a comfortable bed and sofas, this made for a very enjoyable stay.

In a quiet neighbourhood and no traffic noise, the location is superb. There's very easy access to the higher meadows using the various cable cars and cog railways - staying for 3 weeks we bought the Half Price Pass.

To go into Lauterbrunnen, it's possible to catch the punctual bus a minute away or walk for 10-15 mins using the footpath by the river.

Queries were answered promptly by Michael and there's a local agent on hand in case of problems.

We found this apartment to be an excellent base for the many walks in the area and have no hesitation in recommending it.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Without doubt one of the nicest apartments we have stayed in. Beautiful open plan living area, lovely bedroom and great bathroom. We thought the photos were good but the reality is even better. Stunning south facing views, beautiful waterfalls, great food, an idyllic location, we have a lot of great memories. Communication with the hosts was so easy and the lady who manages the apartment from Lauterbrunnen is great. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Brilliant Holiday in Lauterbrunnen

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend this superb apartment in a beautiful setting. There is a really comfy bed with quality cotton bedding, a lovely bathroom and loads of wardrobe space. We only ate out twice in ten days as we preferred to sit on the balcony looking at the mountains. Dinner was easily prepared in the luxury kitchen with quality china, glasses etc. We also did not use our car for ten days as the public transport is so good. We walked miles, the paths are so easy to follow, the wild flower meadows stunning. We absolutely loved it, do not hesitate to book it!

Superb Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Having camped in Lauterbrunnen previously we thought we'd go for a bit more comfort this time and this superb apartment didn't disappoint. Lovely location with amazing views down the valley and only a few minutes walk into the village. The apartment has everything you need in the way of facilities but what we really loved was the view. We stayed four nights and didn't turn the TV on. Would definitely recommend.

This penthouse Is Fantastic in everyway!

  • 5 of 5

Nothing has been left to chance by the owners who have made this penthouse into an opulent out of this world place to stay. Everything is catered for in sheer luxury. We will be back!! The views from the balcony are stunning. We can't speak highly enough of how the apartment is maintained and felt like we were the first people to stay there. It felt brand new in everyway. We would thoroughly recommend this property to everyone we know. Camping Jungfrai restaurant was most pleasing. We went to the Schilthorn for Champagne Breakfast and were amazed at how breathe taking the views were. The skiing was brilliant as was the sledging! An amazing holiday and a truly stunning location.
