Overview

Lauterbrunnen 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.

About Teresa Staeger

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

Why Teresa Staeger chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

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

Wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Lauderbrunnen. The apartment was perfect for our family of 4. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a few steps away from the town and waterfall. Teresa was few welcoming and could not have been a better host. Thank you for everything....we hope to come back to Switzerland soon.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. Luckily most of the guests prefer the character of the chalet rather than the soulessness of the very modern ones. This is shown by the fact that most reviews give 4 or 5 stars.

Lovely flat, enchanting village, great hospitality

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4 (kids are 3 and 7) and were allowed to bring our two small dogs with us. The view from our room was absolutely breathtaking. We were able to prepare several meals in our room and save $$ on dining (the restaurant options in the area were good (although reservations are recommended for dinner), but food in Switzerland is generally very expensive). The pull out couch was pretty uncomfortable for adults but perfect for kids (if not for this, I would have given 5 stars!). I highly recommend this property for families. We spent most of our time sledding and playing in the snow in the beautiful village of Murren.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the nice review. Regarding the pull out couch, about 2 weeks ago I had an Email from American guests who used it asking if I could give them the name of the maker as they found it so comfortable they wanted to see if they could get it in the States.

Quintessential Switzerland!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with 2 Aunts stayed in the apartment. It is functional, clean, nicely furnished with a FABULOUS view! The balcony is wonderful .Our Hostess could not have been nicer and more accomodating. The town of Lauterbrunnen is lovely to stroll with everything that you would need within walking distance. We took the train up to Kleine Scheidigg and had a lovely hike down to Wengen. We would highly recommend it.

Simply Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet is perfect! It is no more than a 5 minute walk from anywhere in the village. From the balcony you can see Jungfrau, Staubbach Falls, and a beautiful view of the valley. Trümmelbach Falls is a must see and it is easily walkable in about 30 - 45 minutes. Our hostess “Teresa” was very helpful in pointing out some of the sights that we might have missed. Lauterbrunnen and the Chalet are most definitely on our "do again" list.

Perfect holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in a beautiful chalet, in the middle of Lauterbrunnen. Only a few steps from hotels, restaurants, shops, bakery etc, but still very silent, and with a spectacular view - The Staubbach fall, mountains, green hills. In the flat you can find all that you need to make your own meals etc. We have realy enjoyed the stay, and will most likely come back!
