Lauterbrunnen Valley Waterfalls, Lauterbrunnen

Valley
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.

  • An incredible place that will give you a unique experience! Meadows with emerald grass, the Sun which is reflected from the eternal snow caps of the Giants. The water downwards from a height of 300-500 metres, turns into a milk streams. Any picture-postcard! :) Unfortunately, we had only the day, but we will definitely return!
