Leiterhorn Trail



5.62 km long

From the Leiterhorn, the Lauterbrunnen Valley presents itself in its entire length. Also magnificent: the view all the way up to the Jungfrau and the striking, pyramid-shaped Silberhorn.

From the village centre of Wengen, a reasonably flat trail leads via Ledi to Hunnenfluh. En route, the trail affords breath-taking views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. From Hunnenfluh, you can enjoy an amazing vista of the Lütschental, and even down as far as Interlaken. Here you'll have to put on your snowshoes.
Then you'll climb up for 20 to 30 minutes, through picturesque woodland, to the Leiterhorn. Along the way, the snow-covered trail affords views of Wengen and the mighty Jungfrau. Once you reach the Leiterhorn, you'll have an incredible view of the 4000m high mountain chain and the deep Lauterbrunnen Valley. For those who don't suffer from vertigo, there's an impressive view to the north, of an almost 700m vertical drop down to Zweilütschinen.
The subsequent return is via Ussri Allmi and Flielenboden, down a none-too-steep wooded pathway to Wengen.

From Basel and Geneva, the fastest route to the Jungfrau Region is via Bern. From Zurich, the route via Lucerne and the Brünig Pass is recommended. The pass is open all year round.

From the south, travel to the Jungfrau Region via the Grimsel or Susten Pass. Both passes are only open in summer. An alternative is the Simplon Pass with subsequent car transport through the Lötschberg tunnel.

The journey from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen takes about 20 minutes.

Arrival Lauterbrunnen

There is a multi-storey car park directly below Lauterbrunnen station. Alternatively, the car park at the Lauterbrunnen church can be used.

Public transit

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run from Basel and Lucerne directly to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich change trains in Bern. The trains run every half hour.

The journey on the blue and yellow Bernese Oberland Bahn (BOB) train from Interlaken Ost to Lauterbrunnen takes 20 minutes. We board the front part of the train, as it splits in Zweilütschinen. Those who get on at the back travel to Grindelwald.
