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.

Lauterbrunnen location was perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the chalet for a week in September. The view from the balcony is amazing as you can see from the pictures. You can watch base jumpers in the sky and a waterfall in the distance. The apartment is comfortable and the washer/dryer a plus. The owner David is so easy to work with and is quick to respond.

For us, it was in a perfect location to explore all the surrounding areas. We did not have a car but it was an easy 15+ minute walk to the train station in town. The Camp Jungfrau just a 5 minute walk away had a store that was filled with everything you needed including fresh baked bread and pastries. The restaurant at the campground was excellent too. We ate there a few nights and also at the Hotel Oberland in town. Both get busy so make reservations.

I would highly recommend this location if you are planning to visit this beautiful area of Switzerland.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational family of 7 had a lovely 4 night stay at this condo in Latterbrunan. The condo is located a short walk from town and has amazing views of one of the area's many dramatic waterfalls. With three bedrooms, two baths and a large living area, we had plenty of room during our stay. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking meals and a having a variety of kid movies and a washer and dryer made staying with kids a breeze. Looking forward to returning in the future!

Superb apartment with great views

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6, 4 adults and 2 young boys.

We found the apartment very spacious, clean and well maintained.

The kitchen was fully equipped.

The balcony had a fantastic view of the valley,the falls and the Breithorn.

There was a generous provision of DVDs for all ages.

Lauterbrunnen is centrally located and provides easy access to the Schilthorn, Wengen, the Yungfrau region and beyond.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the assistance of Tina, the apartment manager, in the return of some personal property left behind.

We highly recommend the property and the area to families, hikers and mountain enthusiasts.

The view never gets old!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Lauterbrunnen in the past few years, and after staying in a hotel the first time, we decided an apartment was the way to go this time. And I'm so glad we made that decision. First of all the view from the balcony was beautiful! We had mixed weather during our stay, and with every change in weather, you could get a different perspective on the view. The apt was about a 10-15 minute walk into the main part of Lauterbrunnen along the river and past the church, or you could take a nice walk through the cemetery towards Staubbach Falls, but if you didn't want to take that long of a walk there was a small grocery store and restaurant just a 5 minute walk from the apt. Apparently there is a local bus that picks up regularly that you can take to town, but just wasn't necessary for us. And to our surprise, at night you could see Staubbach Falls lit up (out the front door)...very pretty!

The apartment itself, was very clean and had everything we needed, 3 bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms, including a washer and dryer, and the kitchen was also well stocked. WiFi was also a plus. Tina, the apt manager, came to greet us when we arrived, and was very nice and helpful!

I may need to return next summer for a longer visit! :-)

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.
