Lauterbrunnen apartment description

Beautiful modern apartment in wonderful location, with spectacular views of the valley and famous Staubbach falls which are floodlit at night. The apartment is on the ground floor with large French doors leading on to our private terrace and garden, with stream running alongside and next to open meadow.Quietly positioned, but only 100m from cross-country ski/hiking trail. A lovely walk into village or up to Trummelbach falls and cable car to Schilthorn/Murren.
Bus stop nearby takes you to Lauterbrunnen station in 5 minutes or Schilthornbahn in 7 minutes to access whole of the Jungfrau ski/hiking area.
The apartment has been finished to a very high standard, including luxury kitchen with granite worktops and stainless steel appliances throughout. Luxury bathroom includes bath/shower and twin sinks. Tiled throughout with underfloor heating. Private garage. A perfect base to explore the Jungfrau region, year round.


Winter in Lauterbrunnen: Lauterbrunnen is a perfect base for a winter holiday whether you are interested in winter sports or not. There are reduced price passes for non skiers so that you can enjoy the fabulous scenery or meet up for lunch. Of course there are plenty of excellent restaurants with spectacular views. The revolving restaurant at the top of the Schiltorn should not be missed. Other activities include snow-shoe trekking, sledging , paragliding, curling and heli-skiing. Further afield there are lovely shops and cafes in Grindelwald and Interlaken. It is possible to take a boat ride on the lake year round. Also many of the hotels and sports centres offer very reasonably priced fitness and spa facilities if you need a little pampering

Spring / summer in Lauterbrunnen: Lauterbrunnen is an excellent base for exploring the Jungfrau region. You can take the train up to Jungfraujoch (the highest railway and restaurant in Europe) or the cable car to Schiltorn/Piz Gloria, film location of James Bond.
There are hiking and cycle paths for all abilities, the Eiger trail or a gentle stroll along the Lauterbrunnen valley, via Gimmelwald and Stechelberg.Or take bikes up to Murren and cycle back down to Lauterbrunnen. The same breath-taking views as the ski run in winter. Local folklore festivals, yodelling, flag throwing and dancing displays take place in the summer months. Food is an important part of staying in the mountains. Excellent local produce such as cheese, hams and bread are all available locally so picnics and BBQ become a real treat.
The lakes and Interlaken are only 8 miles away. With several lidos and beaches around the lake, as well as the pool in the village there are plenty of opportunities for swimming, watersports and boat rides.

Disabled access: The apartment has been built with disabled access in mind. On the ground floor, with easy access through front door or French doors, tiled floors and wide doorways make getting around easier.
The spacious bathroom is wheelchair friendly, and the main bedroom has plenty of room. Please ask if you need any specialist equipment. There are lovely (flat for Switzerland!) walks along the Lauterbrunnen valley which are accessible by wheelchair. Also, most of the public transport is accessible i.e. trains, cable cars, boats and is run with typical Swiss friendliness and efficiency.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Lauterbrunnen is situated in the impressive glaciated valley with the beautiful mountain ranges of Jungfrau/Shilthorn/Breithorn on its doorstep.The famous Staubbach falls dominate the village, whilst the Trummelbach falls (10 in total and inside the mountain!) are within walking distance. Lauterbrunnen is the departing point to the famous car-free resorts of Wengen and Murren, as well as the Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe(the highest train station in Europe) and the Schiltorn/Piz Gloria (made famous by James Bond).

                  Good road links to French motorway network make for a comfortable 9 hour drive from Calais or Zeebrugge.

                  The village is an easy 8 mile drive from Interlaken or 20 minutes on the train.

                  Rail links from Geneva/Zurich/Basel are excellent-less than 3 hrs, or 1 hour transfer from Bern. Eurostar via Paris to Basel then via Interlaken is a quick & easy option.

                  Ski: Lauterbrunnen is a great base to explore the Jungfrau Top Ski Region. There are 45 mountain trains, cable cars, chair and ski lifts, with 213km of pistes for skiers and boarders. Also 100km of winter hiking and X-country paths, and 50km of sledge runs. From the apartment you can take the bus to Lauterbrunnen station in 5 minutes, then train to access skiing above Wengen, or take bus to Schilthorn cablecar in 7 minutes to access Murren skiing .Grindelwald can be reached from Kleine Scheidegg(wonderful views) or drive there in approx 20-30 minutes. For the adventurous skier there is the Lauberhorn run above Wengen, or the wonderful 16km long run from the top of the Schiltorn back to Lauterbrunnen, recently rated as one of the best runs in the world with stunning views, by the Daily Mail Ski and Snowboard magazine. The Sunday Times chose the pistes at Murren as having some of the best scenery in the world. Excellent English-speaking ski-schools are based in Wengen and Murren.

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We now live in the UK after living as expats in several different countries. The apartment was set up as our home & base camp while moving around. Our two boys have now flown the nest ,but we love to get together with our now expanded family, in Lauterbrunnen , whenever we can. We love to cook (and eat !) so you will find a very well equipped kitchen & dining room. We have a very extensive herb & spice cupboard which seems to be constantly expanding! We are also keen gardeners and you are welcome to help yourself to fresh herbs from the terrace. Never happier than sitting on the terrace with a bottle of wine!

                  Why the Owner Chose Lauterbrunnen:
                  We fell in love with the area as students in our back packing days. We chose our apartment for the outside space, and amazing views of the waterfall and valley.On the edge of the small development we are very quietly positioned , away from the road and campsites.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Location, location, location. Large terrace for sunbathing, bbq, Views of Staubbach falls and valley. Breakfast pack, tea, & coffee included. It is very important to us that guests feel at home.
