Travel to Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

Situated about an hour from the capital, Bern, Lauterbrunnen village and the entire Lauterbrunnen Valley in Switzerland, offers an abundance of things to do for both the active and more passive visitor.
Although located on the valley floor at just 796 metres above sea level, its position in the heart of the Alps makes Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland, the ideal spot for enjoying the long list of alpine activities and natural beauty in both winter and summer. (1)
Hiking in the mountains, is available for everyone and should be experienced by visitors coming to Lauterbrunnen.  Most of the mountain hikes are accessible by cable car, gondola or funicular and are made even more affordable by purchasing the Swiss Travel Pass, if you plan on staying at least 3 days and experiencing multiple locations on the mountains. The hiking and biking trails are easily accessible and marked with signposts. Hiking in Lauterbrunnen can vary from 2 hours-4 hours. (2)
Lauterbrunnen is pretty spectacular on its own, but the star of the show is the Staubbach waterfall. At 297 meter, plunging from a vertical cliff wall, it’s just about the first thing you notice when you arrive in Lauterbrunnen. Staubbach is also one of the highest waterfalls in Europe and possibly one of the most beautiful.
The impressive thing about this waterfall is that the water is free-falling off the cliffs and sends clouds of mists into the air.  (3)
