Lauterbrunnen Hotels

Tucked between cascading waterfalls and immense valley walls that have inspired poets and artists for generations, Lauterbrunnen is a picture-postcard Swiss hideaway. That's not to say it's just about relaxing amid quaint village houses and Alpine meadows, though. This is an adventurer's haven, whether you're keen on mountain biking or skiing – the summer and winter sports here in the Jungfau region are world-famous, and you'll also be close to the Wengen ski resort which is perched above the Lauterbrunnen valley.

Things to see

There is some scintillating skiing to be had in Lauterbrunnen itself, with dozens of smooth and inviting pistes to test your skills on. On top of that, staying in the area gives you access to the other major resorts of the Jungfau ski region, such as Wengen and Mürren. As well as the exhilarating winter sports on offer, there are some must-see geographical landmarks including the Schilthorn, a rocky summit overlooking Lauterbrunnen. Here you'll find a revolving restaurant famed for being the supervillain's headquarters in the classic James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The Schilthorn offers breathtaking views across the Bernese Alps, as well as some challenging runs perfectly suited to seasoned skiers. There are also plenty of cross-country ski trails and toboggan runs to be enjoyed in winter, while the summer presents its own charms. A hike in the region will bring you close to the hazy beauty of just over 70 waterfalls in the Lauterbrunnen valley, including the celebrated 300 meter plunge of the Staubbach Falls.
