Lauterbrunnen Valley Waterfalls, Lauterbrunnen

4.8
#2 of 10 in Nature in Jungfrau Region
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.

    This Valley is a wonder, a postcard. It is an area full of waterfalls, on both sides of the Valley, the most famous are the Trümmelbach and staubbach fall. You reach without any problems with car, both from Interlaken. There is also a train. From the bottom of the Valley, the village of trummelbach falls, leaving many routes walkers, by waterfalls. Highly recommended visit. The parking is paid. There are a couple of restaurants next to the parking lot. The buildings, the few that there are, are the typical wooden chalets. Some of them are hotels / hostels.
