From Lauterbrunnen you start unforgettable excursions to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe (highest train station of Europe) or the Schilthorn/Piz Gloria (360° panorama with revolving restaurant).

Lauterbrunnen is an exceptionally attractive mountain valley – 72 waterfalls including the famous landmark, the sparkling Staubbach waterfall. Visit also the spectacular Trümmelbach glacier waterfalls inside the mountain.


Due to its nearly vertical rock face behind the village, the Lauterbrunnen valley is known as a mecca for base jumpers. One of the reason is that in Switzerland it is permitted to jump from rocks, which is forbidden in many other European Countries.

Camping Jungfrau (5-star), Lauterbrunnen


Schilthorn – follow the footsteps of James Bond. It takes you just 32 minutes by cable car to reach the summit of the 2970 m.a.s.l. high Schilthorn.

The Schilthorn is where you find the world's first revolving restaurant, Piz Gloria. The Touristorama will show you extracts of the 007 Movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service”, which was filmed at the Schilthorn. Or simply enjoy the spectacular view from the big terrace!



Wengen is a pretty traffic free village at 1274 m.a.s.l., 400 metres above the picturesque Lauterbrunnen Valley. The fantastic surrounding scenery is dominated by the dramatic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau massif.

The village is only reached by train from Lauterbrunnen and hosts the longest World Cup downhill ski race annually on Lauberhorn.

Lauberhorn is the race where Bode Miller won in the seasons 2007 and 2008 and where he was on the victory podium 4 times in his career. The American ski champion Bode Miller is well known to travel to the races for more than 5 years with his own motorhome. May be the lifestyle as a motorhome-traveller could be one of the reasons for his success!
