Lauterbrunnen Waterfalls

Nestled amidst the picturesque Swiss Alps, thunderous Lauterbrunnen Waterfalls are nothing short of magical wonder that gush down into the valley with all their charismatic enamor. The staggering natural beauty of the roaring waterfalls perfectly complements the Alpine charm in the backdrop and is a magnificent place to reconnect with nature.

The waterfalls are idyllically ruffled in the Lauterbrunnen valley which is tucked between the gigantic rock cliffs, snow-capped mountain peaks, and verdant meadows. Interestingly, one of these waterfalls uniquely displays their formation in a cave-like environment and is a spectacular phenomenon to behold.

Cataloged as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Lauterbrunnen Waterfall Cave is bound to enrapture the visitors with its breath-taking glory. April to May happens to be the pinnacle of summer months and is the ideal time to visit the Lauterbrunnen valley waterfalls. Summer months help to melt the snow and thus enhance their scenic beauty as they cascade over the rocky edge of the cliffs at full speed.

Here is a list of best Waterfalls in Lauterbrunnen:

01

Staubbach Falls

Staubbach Falls
Earmarked as one of Europe's highest free-falling waterfalls and the second-highest waterfall in Switzerland, Staubbach Falls is truly a stunner. As the waterfall tumbles down from a hanging valley, it adds a sense of splendor to an already incredible landscape.

During the summer months, warm winds swirl around the tumbling waters and create an effect of the misty spray. As a result, the waterfall descends in a condition of liquid dust and is titled as Staubbach Falls where the German word “Staub” stands for “dust”.

Location: Staubbach Falls is located above Lauterbrunnen Village in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland. 

Best Time: Between late April and early May.

Distance From Lauterbrunnen City: The distance between the Staubbach Falls and Lauterbrunnen City is only 500 meters.

Trümmelbach Falls
Resonating noise along with churning water in the interior of the mountain, Trümmelbach Falls are Europe's largest subterranean waterfalls. This mesmerizing natural spectacle is a series of  10 glacier-fed waterfalls in a cave-like environment and has been listed as a natural UNESCO World Heritage site.

The acoustically and visually aesthetic Trümmelbach Falls is also the only glacier waterfalls that are accessible by dimly lit elevator, tunnels, and platforms. Next time you plan for a trip to Switzerland, don’t forget to venture into this chasm to witness the spectacle of milky glacial water cascading its way down over the chiseled rocks and thumping the walls of the narrow slot canyon. 

Location: Trümmelbach Falls are located right in the middle of the idyllic Lauterbrunnen valley.

Best Time: Between early April to early November.

Distance From Lauterbrunnen City: The distance between the Trümmelbach Falls and Lauterbrunnen City is 2.8 kilometers.

One can get the best views of the captivating Murrenbach Falls while traversing in a cable car via Stechelberg –Gimmelwald- Mürren- Schilthorn route.

The best fun I had at night in Switzerland was with sulwald Sledding experience at Interlaken. The activities are really organized and the guide gives thorough instruction about the details of the night. I must say that these instructions can get really boring but the guide found a way to make it really fun. I and my partner I was able to get into the action really fast with Sledging which followed dinner. All in all, I must thank Thrillophilia for making our night adventurous.
