best season

Start this hike by following the signposts leading from Lauterbrunnen railway station into the village. At the Gryfenbach stream, the trail climbs towards the impressive "Flue" cliff, crossing to the left of the stream and continuing in a zigzag path towards the Louwibach stream. Continue on this steep trail between both cliffs until you reach the Staubbach stream. The Staubbach from above: The rushing waters of the Staubbach Falls as they gush over the overhanging rock face and cascade almost 300 metres are an awe-inspiring natural spectacle. The roar of this world-famous waterfall can be heard from far below. At the stream's course - the site of a former mule pit - you can descend to the edge of the waterfall along a secured pathway leading to the lookout point. Standing in a mist of spray and almost within touching distance of the mighty waterfall is an unforgettable experience. Picture-postcard views: From the lookout point, the trail ascends to the Mürrenweg path and continues to the Spissibach stream. On reaching the railway line, you follow a small natural track in a southerly direction parallel to the railway line to the spa town of Mürren. This last section offers magnificent views deep into the Lauterbrunnen Valley as well as of the Jungfrau massif with the famous Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks.

Note(s)
Hiking trail with no exposed sections, but steep in places requiring good physical fitness.
Normal hiking gear, hiking boots with good soles and walking sticks help with the ascent.
