Enjoy the relaxed, small village atmosphere that is close to many exciting things to do including hiking, exploring the waterfalls, a visit to the Schilthorn Mountain and a trip to Jungfraujoch – the Top of Europe!
The Lauterbrunnen Valley is said to be one of the most beautiful in Switzerland. It became a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site in 2001. Rumor has it that Tolkien got the idea for Rivendell during a hike from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen.
To while the time, for which a car-free village is particularly suited, I found a table on the deck of the Hotel Regina. Relaxing with a local Black Beer, Schwarzen Mönch, brewed in nearby Gimmelwald and a vegetarian sandwich.
Jungfraujoch is a viewing point Bernese Alps and, at an altitude of 3,454 m, Europe’s highest train station. It lies at the end of the engineering marvel of a tunnel that cuts through the rock of the mountain ridge.
