(4.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Hike around some of Switzerland's most dramatic landscapes at Lauterbrunnen Valley Waterfalls, which plunge down overhanging rock faces created by natural forces over thousands of years. A huge draw for adventure seekers from around the globe, the lush valley features 72 thunderous waterfalls, some of which carry 20,000 l (5,280 gal) of water per second. When Goethe visited the valley in 1779, the majestic falls moved him so deeply that he returned home to write one of his best-known poems, "Spirit Song Over the Waters." Discover this untamed glacial valley by trekking around some of its world-famous trails, or hop on the scenic rack railway linking the region's half-dozen mountain villages.

  • Lauterbrunnen Valley is one of the places of Switzerland, practically mandatory to visit. It is a beautiful valley with steep walls trjohsotmetrovymi with which all year of various power jets subsides numerous waterfalls (and love to hop base jumpers). The most famous waterfalls-Sung Shtaubbah, virtually ice-free Goethe all winter. But there are still many in the Valley, though not such a powerful, but also very beautiful waterfalls. No less interesting and drove their way inside the mountain waterfall Trjummel'bah (available only from spring to autumn, chargeable), along the Cascades which you can pass on equipped with galleries. (It can be slowly reached in about one hour from the train station.) The best time to visit the Valley of Lauterbrunnen-May-June, when the waterfalls are most powerful. Winter in the Valley of the Sun, and little waterfalls don't look very spectacular. Undoubtedly, a walk through the Valley takes genuine pleasure for nature lovers. You are strongly encouraged to attend.

  • Make sure you go and see Trummelbach Falls, inside the mountain! An experience without being too expensive.
