Besides cross country possibilities
Lauterbrunnen offers basically no skiing of it's own.

Yes, it is true that on a very good day one can ski from Mürren to Lauterbrunnen, but there are no lifts or ski pistes right in the town, save the small beginner's lift at camping Jungfrau.

One must take the train either to Mürren or to the Wengen Kl.  Scheidegg area to hit the slopes. However to those who swear by Lauterbrunnen, this only adds to the reasons for using the village as a base.  Besides being super convenient to both the Mürren and Wengen skiing, Lauterbrunnen is excellent value for money and retains a true Swiss mountain resort flavor.

Accommodation choice runs from comfortable camping to three star hotels.  Do not take the cross country possibilities too lightly here either, as it is a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the valley and get yourself some terrific exercise.

Lauterbrunnen winter activities

Cross-country skiing
Alpine topography is not naturally blessed with many areas suitable for Nordic cross-country skiing.  But cross-country skiers are well catered for in the lovely Lauterbrunnen Valley.

The 12 km Lauterbrunnen - Stechelberg piste glides along the banks of the Weisse Lütschine River into the far end of the valley, catering for both classic and skating styles. In Blumental, high above Mürren, you'll find the sunny 2 km Mürren -Sonnenberg run.  The annual "Inferno Cross-Country Ski Race" takes place in Lauterbrunnen in January.

Ice sport Open-air ice rink at the Sports Center. Ice skates and sporting equipment may be hired from Crystal Sport. Tobogganing A Cool "Hot Tip" - Tobogganing! Tobogganing, as seen here on the fantastic forest run from Sulwald to Isenfluh, has a long tradition in the area. The familiar wooden toboggans are still often used as a means of transport on snow covered village streets and paths and the well known "Grindelwald" model is of course made in the village.

Tobogganing remains a great favorite with all age groups, local people and guests alike. Toboggans and bobs can be hired at local sports shops and night-time tobogganing is organized by the local Ski School. Don't miss the exciting annual toboggan race Sulwald - Isenfluh, held in February.

Lauterbrunnen summer activities
Climbing & Mountain Guides
The Jungfrau Region has a long tradition as a mountain climbing center and the summit of the Jungfrau was reached as early as 1811.

The mountain guides of Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen have rightly gained a legendary reputation, as have their many spectacularly courageous rescue attempts. Mountaineers will really be on a high! Famous peaks over 4000 metres high, e.g. the Jungfrau and Mönch and tempting peaks of over 3000 me- tres e.g. the Breithorn, Tshingelhorn and Gspaltenhorn issue their icy challenge! The notorious Eiger (3970m) is, of course, a mighty magnet and experienced climbers can scale the summit along the Mittellegi Ridge.
  • For information on the various climbing routes and to arrange the services of a mountain guide, contact the Tourist Information Center and the Mountain Guides Associations.

  • Technical equipment can be hired from local sports shops.

Tours & Mountain huts
Explore this amazing area, safely roped to an expert professional mountain guide! Spend the night in a cosy mountain hut, high in the Alps! (unroped)! Many different tours, varying in length and difficulty are offered by the Mountain Guide Associations or organized by Tourist Information Centers.

Local mountain guides and Jungfrau Railways both offer two day glacier hikes from the Jungfraujoch over the Aletsch Glacier to Kühboden (Fiesch), with overnight accommodation in the Konkordia hut (2850m).
A few of the easier guided routes do not require mountain experience and are suitable for family tours, but you must be in top condition! For example: the two day Petersgrat Glacier hike (3200m), spending the night in the Mutthorn hut (2901m).


Mountain-Biking
Mountain Biking, individual, environmentally-friendly fun - obeying the rules of mountain biking and only on permitted biking routes of course!
