Lauterbrunnen apartment description

A modern stylish apartment with spectacular unobstructed views of the Alps. The large sunny terrace has a unique position at the very edge of the village in one of the world’s most dramatic valleys. Beyond are alpine meadows and hiking trails over streams, rising to high alpine pastures. In summer the BBQ and patio furniture are perfect for relaxation. French windows look out from a large lounge and dining area, comfortably furnished in oak and leather, with cosy underfloor heating. A luxury kitchen includes granite surfaces, dishwasher and microwave. Bathroom and bedrooms are to an equally high standard. Other features include level access, free WiFi internet, cable TV/DVD, washing machine/drier, private garage and ski room. A cross country ski trail skirts close by, with a skating rink 200m back towards the village (tennis courts in summer). The skibus (100m) puts the international ski areas of Wengen and Murren within easy reach by cable car or the Eiger Northface cog-railway.


Winter Holidays for non-skiers: Whilst famous for it's skiing, the Lauterbrunnen Valley is equally ideal for other winter activities, including just absorbing the fantastic scenery. Access to mountain restaurants couldn't be easier due to the network of mountain cog-railways and cable cars. For the more energetic extensive trails are maintained for snow-shoe trekking and there are over 50 kms of toboggan runs. There is also a local heli-skiing pad, paragliding, ice skating, ice climbing and ice go-karting. In addition Lauterbrunnen is the starting point for one of the world's most dramatic train rides by rack and pinion railway, through the snow fields of Kleine Scheidegg and the Eiger northface to emerge at Europe's highest railway station at Jungfraujoch, providing direct access onto Europes longest glacier, the Aletschglacier. For more down to earth activities local trains run into the heart of great shopping at Grindelwald and Interlaken and a little further afield to Thun and Bern, Switzerland's capital city. ************************************************************************************************************************************ Lauterbrunnen in Spring and Summer: Many of Lauterbrunnen's winter attractions are equally attractive in Spring and Summer, not least the mountain restaurants and the ride up past the Eiger to Jungfraujoch and the Aletschglacier (see Winter Holidays above). However the melting snow also reveals swathes of magnificent alpine flowers and a vast range of hiking trails. Wild ibex, marmots and chamois can be found in the more remote uplands, whilst golden eagles, wall creeper, nutcracker and red kites are amongst the rarer birds frequently seen. Cycle routes vary from gentle routes along the valley bottom to tough tracks over mountain passes. For more sedate pastimes traditional Swiss culture is regularly on show, from yodelling to folk dancing, alpine horns and Swiss bands. Local hero William Tell is also celebrated throughout the summer at the open air theatre in Interlaken. In addition a number of beaches and lidos can be found dotted around the huge adjoining lakes, as well an open-air pool back in the village.************************************************************************************************************** Wheelchair Access: The apartment is suitable for people who may be less physically able or for those with young children, with level access throughout and a large flat terrace. Wheelchair users will find that doors are wide and the hallways , bathroom and corridors are roomy. Although there is a small step at the entrance to the building(5cms), the approach is level and there are suitable footpaths throughout the valley, including back to the village. The cable cars, trains and buses are generally equally user friendly.

                      The village provides a range of shops and restaurants, a ten minute stroll away along the river. A well stocked local store offers most things 7 days a week, including fresh bread. Other local facilities include nearby tennis courts and cycle hire. Outdoor swimming pool, paragliding, rock climbing, white water rafting and mountain biking are all local, with excellent golf at Interlaken. Visits to historic towns and lakes like Bern, Thun and Lucerne are all convenient, as are many famous mountain passes. But the main reason for coming to the Lauterbrunnen Valley is the scenery, 72 waterfalls, spectacular mountain railways, diverse wildlife, glacial valleys, the Eiger, the Jungfrau and UNESCO World Natural Heritage designation. The area is however very accessible by Eurorail, motorway and train to 3 international airports; Geneva, Basel and Zurich. (For more on the immediate area google Eurocamp Lauterbrunnen Camping-Jungfrau)

                      Other Activities: white water rafting, base jumping, birdwatching, flora and fauna

                      Ski: The skiing is rivalled only by the scenery, probably the most spectacular in Europe. Lauterbrunnen is also the only place in the Jungfrau ski region with equally easy access to both Wengen and Murren, both car free villages sitting on the cliff tops on opposite sides of the valley. Murren, the birthplace of downhill skiing, has an international reputation as an elegant, true alpine village. It can be reached by either of two efficient cable cars rising up from the Lauterbrunnen Valley floor. Wengen is even more famous, being the home of the Lauberhorn, the longest downhill World Cup race, run annually in January. The whole area has great skiing for all levels, with 230km of pistes, rising to nearly 3000m, and 50km of sledging. It also offers the added excitement of skiing below the North face of the Eiger and from the revolving restaurant at the top of the Schilthorn, made famous as the location for the James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'.
