Summer in the Berner Oberland: The Lauterbrunnen Valley is known as the valley of waterfalls and is a mecca for all outdoor and extreme sports. The short walk (1km) to Lauterbrunnen Station is the starting point to give you access to mountain railways and cable cars and the mountain villages they serve. From these villages you have an almost limitless choice of walking and cycling trails of varying difficulties. From the apartment you can walk along the river path, past the Trummelbach Falls to Stechelberg. From here you can catch the cable car up to Schilthorn/Piz Gloria, made famous in the James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' and its revolving restaurant. Staying in the village gives you access to shops and excellent restaurants, tennis, swimming and crazy golf. The Air Glacier Helicopters run pleasure flights around the region.
Winter in the Berner Oberland: The ski and toboggan slopes of Wengen and Murren are less than 20 minutes from the apartment. The post bus stops outside the apartment and takes skiers and non-skiers directly to Lauterbrunnen station, and then trains and cable cars take you up to either Wengen or Murren. The ski season runs from December to April. There are 210 km of prepared pistes (First, Kleine Scheidegg, Mannlichen and Murren-Schilthorn) accessible from Lauterbrunnen and these cover all abilities from beginner to advanced, as well as opportunities for off piste skiing with local guides. The cost of the lift pass includes access to all lifts, trains, cable cars and buses. Equipment is available to hire from local shops in the village.
We love the village and the area, with great walking in the summer and great skiing in the winter. We bought this particular apartment as it is on the edge of the development and is only 2 or 3 with an uninterrupted view up the valley.
This apartment has a great location, we loved the view from the balcony. The apartment was well equipped, spacious and clean. It was easy to walk into town, to catch a bus if needed, to walk anywhere in the valley. We were very happy to stay here and were sorry to leave such a gorgeous location. There are many attractions available in the area and easy to reach. A camp is located nearby and they had a little store and good restaurant so you didn't have to walk into town. Many beautiful trails were accessible from the apartment.
One warning to future guests: The cleaning and towel fees are collected at the end of your stay so plan on having a large amount of cash available for this.
Excellent Space, great views. The pictures don't lie! It seems like the last home, facing south, before heading to Stechelberg. Very Private, great value, highly recommended.
The property was in a nice position and had lovely views of the mountains. Lauterbrunnen is such a lovely part of Switzerland with so much going on around it. We have been back several times to the area.
We are a family that visits Lauterbrunnen several times a year and this apartment is the best accommodation we have stayed in. It is clean and well maintained with everything you could need for your stay. The owners and local agent were very helpful and prompt when dealing with any enquiries. The ski bus stops right outside of the apartment and the campsite across the river is brilliant for dining out in the evenings. Would wholeheartedly recommend.
The apartment was gorgeous and exactly what we were looking for! Very large and Stunning location with really good views.. The only negative was we thought the cleaning prices as well as the linen fee was quite excessive (about half the cost of the rental) but we knew the costs when we booked. Apart from that it was all great and Kath was very helpful.
Quick feedback of our 1 week stay at Sean's & Anna's lovely place @ Lauterbrunnen/CH, during the New years week (2015/2016).
The chalet , a brand new apartment is located at the end of Lauterbrunnen/ 1st floor with a gorgeous balcony is, facing the mountain side.
I can only agree on all the previous reviews / its simply beautiful and in superb condition - i'd like to focus in my review a bit more on the closeby attractions during winter.
Fresh Bio Milk from the farm is available 24/7 just 2 km away. Bakery and super markets downtown Lauterbrunnen can be reached via Post or Skibus ( bustop directly on front of the house ). Bus shuttles every 20 min/winter schedule.
Closeby skiing area Muerren /Shilthorn ( 75% steep downhill slope - awesome) / 007 movie was shot here . spectacular view ( incl Mont blanc/ if the weather permits.
Other skiing areas within the Jungfrau region i.e.
Maennlichen , Lauberhorn incl the worldcup downhill slope, Wengen , Eiger North wall, First - all these slopes can be reached via train from either Lauterbrunnen train station or via Grindelwald.
Train ticket price to these areas is part of your skipass/ if a Jungfrau Region pass has been purchased- not the cheapest for sure but @ CHF 67,-/adult ( peak season) still reasonable.
what you get is simply great .. prestine slopes conditions, REAL black diamond slopes, majority are RED and also BLUE ones..
the train ride up to the Kleine Scheidegg @ the foot of the EIGER NORTH WALL takes approx an hour/ yes, a bit long but the way up compensates for it. the view is simply breath taking.
For non skiers, Grindelwald offers via its Sportzentrum, swimming ( with a water slide ), wellness area , ice skating , swiss curling & indoor climbing facilities.
Conclusion - beautiful chalet, reasonable priced in excellent condition located in a perfect location - if you look for Apres Ski and all the nightlife fun, surely not the best place to be, but if you like to relax and wind down THE ideal location !
We'll be back :) cheers Mike
Lauterbrunnen is a small alpine village in the famous Jungfrau region in Switzerland. It is the ideal base for both summer and winter holidays for hiking, skiing, sledging or mountain biking, or you can take gentle walks through the breathtaking mountain scenery. The valley has many waterfalls, including the 300 m high Staubbach Falls at the edge of the village and the Trummelbach Falls, which thunder through mountain caverns.
The village itself has several shops and restaurants, as well as a post office and two banks. There is also a small convenience store (open all week) a few minutes walk from the apartment.
Lauterbrunnen is the starting point for the cable cars and mountain railways which climb through beautiful scenery to the car free resorts of Wengen and Murren (both less than 20 minutes from the apartment) and onto the Jungfraujoch, which at 3454 m is Europe's highest railway station. The Schiltorn/Piz Gloria, made famous by James Bond is at the end of this valley
