Know More about this tour

Take a pleasant ride on a cable car from Lauterbrunnen to Grtschalp station. Once you have arrived (elevation 4885 ft) you'll find a train waiting to take you on to the car-free alpine village of Mrren, or we suggest to take the glorious Mountain View Trail ideal for nature lovers, photographers, hikers or even a casual walkers, this is a panoramic hike with fantastic views of the world-famous icy icons, the Eiger, Mnch & Jungfrau. Those who don't want to miss the stroll to Mrren will enjoy along a gentle forest path, crossing a dozen streams, one of which is the Staubbach whose waters quickly plunge over a cliff and form Staubbach Falls, the signature waterfall of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Along the way you pass the Winteregg dairy on the right where you'll find locally produced cheese, yogurt, caramels, and other products. After about an hour of walking and an elevation gain of over 500 feet, you arrive in Mrren (elevation 5,397 feet). You'll find plenty of viewpoints along the way to Mrren, perfect to Photograph alpine panoramas with the Jungfrau as the glorious center piece. We can assist you taking better photographs along this scenic tour and also we will be happy to portrait you and your group with a jaw dropping background of the Bernese Alps. 

Continuing on through Mrren the road descends through a mix of modern apartments and centuries-old farm houses before descending with a lovely cable car ride to Stechelberg.  Take a 7 minute bus ride to Trmmelbach Falls, which is one of those "must see" natural wonders. It's a series of 10 pounding waterfalls that have cut through the rock to form immense underground channels and torrents. Fed by the glaciers of the Eiger, Mnch, and Jungfrau, 20,000 liters of water per second pound their way through the chasm to the valley below. This underground spectacle is made ingeniously and perfectly accessible by a tunnel funicular and a series of illuminated tunnels, galleries, and balconies.

After, return to Lauterbrunnen by bus. From the bus stop you can already enjoy the beauty of the Staubbach Waterfall. Anyone who has ever wanted to meet one of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's "muses" is in the right place in the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The Prince of Poetry was inspired by the imposing Staubbach Falls for his work "Song of the Spirits Over the Waters". Lauterbrunnen's landmark is approximately 300 metres (1000 ft) above the vertical rock face being third highest waterfall in Switzerland a natural display of a quality that can only be seen here. From the foot of the waterfall, a path leads up to the Staubbach Gallery. After a short climb takes you right up to, and then behind the curtain of water. After a few switchbacks, you enter a long tunnel, and then cling to the edge of the cliff as water swirls in the air all around you. You'll get wet. You'll have fun. The spray fountains, which gave their name to the waterfall, can be observed here up close.
