best season

Easy hike, suitable also for strollers or buggies.

Water plays a huge part in the picturesque Lauterbrunnental valley. This hike, which in fact could also be described as a walk, takes us past the Staubbach waterfall after only a short distance. We then pass the thundering Trümmel Falls before the path takes us across the Weisse Lütschine to Stechelberg once we have passed the Breithorn campsite. The small village is the perfect spot to enjoy a delicious meal or warm up with a hot drink. Lauterbrunnen can be reached again either along the same route or by bus.

Tip

While the Staubbach gallery is accessible only in the summer season, the Staubbach waterfall itself can be admired all year round. In winter it often freezes over and, in the evening, is impressively illuminated. The Trümmel Falls, also on the route, are open from April to November, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Getting there

There are various ways to get here by car. From Basel and Geneva, the fastest route is via Bern. From Zurich, the quickest route is towards Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.

From the south, the Grimsel or Susten Passes lead to the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then the Lötschberg car transport.
