Overview

Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau Apartment Rental Photos and Description

British-Swiss owner, 45 years experience renting in Lauterbrunnen Valley

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.

Winter sports: skiing, snowboarding, cross-country, winter hiking, tobogganing, skating, and tandem paragliding.

Summer sports: hiking, mountain climbing, swimming, mountain biking, river rafting, fishing, windsurfing and paragliding.

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.

Most restaurants in the village serve local Swiss food (also international food). Night-life is available in Wengen and Interlaken. In summer there are local concerts of Yodeling, local brass band, traditional dancing, flag-throwing and Alpenhorn.

Had a wonderful time in Lauterbrunnen. Chalet Horner was an excellent spot. Ideal for a family of 4. Close to the train station, and all amenities. It was warm and comfortable and ideal for 3 nights. Thanks Teresa for making it a pleasant stay.

Ideal Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Lauberhorn apartment in Chalet Horner in June 2016. It has a perfect location within walking distance of the train station, grocery store and the small village restaurants and shops, but more importantly, the view from the balcony is beyond compare! Sitting there looking out at the Staubbach waterfall and the spectacular mountains beyond was like a dream! And the apartment itself was very clean and well-equipped, and cozy for two people. Teresa was very responsive from our initial contact right through our departure. I would highly recommend this property.

The Perfect Bernese Oberland Launch Point

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful experience at Teresa's chalet. She has everything we could have needed in the apartment, and the location can't be beat. Views of the waterfall and glorious Alps from the balconies are the best part! At a five-ish minute walk from the Lauterbrunnen train station, the location cannot be beat. Teresa is very kind, accommodating, and quick to respond. I highly recommend this rental!

Perfectly Central

  • 5 of 5

What a charming chalet in the middle of town, only a 5 minute walk to everywhere. Teresa was quick to respond and particularly helpful with directions and when we arrived on things to see and do (including market day on Wednesday's). She even advised us that bad weather was coming and luckily we got up the Jungfrau as the next day it was closed! Wonderful to have a little balcony to sit and absorb the amazing scenery. Apartment was clean, compact and very quiet. Beds were comfy, shower great and love the little extras in the kitchen. The timber fits perfectly with the location. Was also great to have cooking facilities as it can be expensive to eat out with children in Lauterbrunnen. Overall - excellent! Hope to come back one day.......

Lovely retreat after a busy Paris

  • 5 of 5

Our family, including my 9 & 11 year old boys, stayed in Luberhorn for 6 nights in mid-August. Theresa was quick with her initial email responses when I contacted her back in April and she was on location the day we arrived off of a 3 train trip from Paris. The space is very clean and well kept and Theresa was very helpful in getting us oriented to the valley.

The view was stunning from all of the windows. The kitchen had the basics ready for us (I held on to 2 instant coffee envelopes that we hadn't used while staying in Switzerland, and they saved us three weeks later when we found ourselves in Istanbul our first morning without coffee!) and the right sort of utensils for us to make our own meals. The beds were very comfortable and the shower worked well too. We were surprised to find a bathtub that my boys used every evening after a day of hiking and exploring.

The chalet is perfectly placed, being so close to the Lauterbrunnen train station (where we arrived from Paris) and to the other funiculars and gondolas that take you up into the higher villages. There's also a children's playground within walking distance that we allowed our boys to go to on their own, once we all got the lay of the land. The Coop grocery store is also very close.

There are a TON of activities you can enjoy while staying at Chalet Horner! The local pool (with foosball and a trampoline for kids) was run by a very pleasant woman and we were there daily. My boys became fast friends with some English lads who we also saw on our hikes later that week. You can easily walk to Staubbach Falls and there's the path (completely flat) that also runs from the road in front of the Falls out to Trummelbach Falls (and past a couple of farms that sell their own cheese and butter). We took a bus from Lauterbrunnen out to Trummelbach, visited the falls, then walked back on the trail. Visiting Murren was a lovely day trip and we happened to be there for their annual Murren Festival that couldn't have been more delightful! We also had a day of hiking, we took the bus to Stechelburg and hiked up to Gimmelwald and bought ice cream at the Honesty Shop and took the Gondola back down and the bus back to Lauterbrunnen.

This place is very, very well taken care of and Theresa is wonderful and helpful. I'd highly recommend her chalet to anyone who is looking for a relaxing and enjoyable place to land in the valley, with or without kids.

A wee bit of heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5

My first stay at the studio in Chalet Horner was 14yrs ago when my eldest daughter was a toddler. It was a lovely surprise to find that the studio was available for our return with my two daughters this year, and it really felt like coming back to a home from home. The cosy studio was just the right size for us, the beds comfortable, the kitchen stocked with everything you could need, and the views unbeatably beautiful. The garden is gorgeous and very well kept, and it was a delight every morning to step outside, enjoy the views and listen to the waterfall and the gentle ringing of the cowbells in the distance.

Teresa is a wonderful host, and little Chicco the dog makes the place feel even more homely. It was lovely to have him trot down to say hello to us regularly, especially since we were missing our own pets!

The great beauty of the studio is that it feels totally private and peaceful - were it not for our desire to explore, I could happily have spent my entire week sitting outside reading a book, listening to the sounds of nature, and soaking up the soul-soothing surroundings. Lauterbrunnen is such a wonderful place, and I can't imagine a better place to stay during a holiday there than Chalet Horner. I hope to be back again in the future.
