Lauterbrunnen is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been in my life. I mean, those Lauterbrunnen waterfalls are out of this world.

What makes it unique is the combination of majestic waterfalls, the towering steep rock walls and the Alps’ magical charm. And I’m not the only one who’s been smitten by this Swiss valley.

Several writers and movie producers have been inspired by Lauterbrunnen, from J.R.R. Tolkien to Arthur Conan Doyle.

So, let’s take a look at this Alpine mountain village and it’s beautiful waterfalls.

The 72 Lauterbrunnen waterfalls

The valley of Lauterbrunnen is one kilometer in width and it’s tucked between dramatic vertical rock walls and snow-capped mountains that rise high above the meadows.

This little valley in the Swiss Alps has no less than 72 thundering waterfalls, some of which are several hundred meters high.

Anywhere you go in Lauterbrunnen you always hear the hypnotising sound of water rushing down the rocks. The air is moist, but fresh and crisp like after a heavy rainfall. It smells like flowers sky diving through the summer air.

🇨🇭 In German, Lauterbrunnen means: “Loud Springs”, and the name is spot on.

Lauterbrunnen in movies and books

Lauterbrunnen’s thunderous waterfalls and dramatic cliffs have inspired many great writers and poets, such as J.R.R. Tolkien who got the inspiration for Rivendell during a hike from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen.

Those of you who are Sherlock Holmes fans know that it’s also the waterfalls where Holmes has his presumed mortal combat with his archenemy Professor Moriarty (at Reichenbach Falls).

And, let’s not forget the 1969 James Bond movie which was filmed in Lauterbrunnen.

Map of the best waterfalls in Lauterbrunnen

With 72 waterfalls to choose from, it can be a daunting task to locate the best ones. So, I recommend using this map below where you can find the locations of all the waterfalls in this post. I’ve numbered them 1-10 so you can easily find them.

Use the + and – sign in the corner to zoom in and out, and then click on the numbers to see the waterfall.

10 must-see waterfalls in Lauterbrunnen

1. Staubbach Falls

Lauterbrunnen is pretty spectacular on its own, but the star of the show is the Staubbach waterfall. At 297 meters, plunging from a vertical cliff wall, it’s just about the first thing you notice when you arrive in Lauterbrunnen.

Staubbach is one of the highest waterfalls in Europe and possibly one of the most beautiful if you ask me.

The impressive thing about this waterfall is that the water is free-falling off the cliffs and sends clouds of mists into the air. On a windy day, the flowing mist is almost lost in the wind before it reaches the rocks below.

2. Trümmelbach Falls

Trümmelbach Falls is another famous Lauterbrunnen waterfall that you should visit. Hidden behind a mountain, Trümmelbach is a sequence of 10 waterfalls fed by glaciers. It’s actually the world’s only glacier waterfalls that you can access underground by lift, tunnels and paths.

During hot summer days and after intense thunderstorms, it transports up to 20,000 litres of water per second through a narrow gorge, which, as you can probably imagine, is quite a sight. Not to mention loud.

3. Mürrenbach falls

The Mürrenbach Falls is the highest waterfall in Switzerland. It’s located just outside Lauterbrunnen, in Stechelberg. The water from Mürrenfluh plummets down from a height of 417 meters in five beautiful cascades.

The waterfall is active throughout the year, but it’s at its most beautiful after the snow melts in the spring (May).

Impressive, isn’t it?

4. Staldenbachfall

On the right side of the Lauterbrunnen valley, you’ll find Staldenbachfall. The waterfall is fed by both the river Staldenbach and the Silberhorn glacier, which results in the water cascading over multiple stages.

Staldenbachfall is around 300 meters high, and it’s an impressive waterfall! Close by, you can also find Mattenbachfall.

5. Mattenbachfall

Mattenbachfall is one of the highest waterfalls in Lauterbrunnen. With a total height of 300-500 meters, the river Mattenbach cascades over multiple stages.

The waterfall is fed by melted snow and ice from the glacier Silberhorn gletscher and Giesengletscher, which makes early summer (May/June) the perfect time to visit Lauterbrunnen valley.

6. Spissbachfall

With a single drop of 280 meter, Spissbachfall is one of the 10 highest single drop waterfalls in Switzerland.

Spissbachfall is close to the village of Lauterbrunnen and it’s fed by melted snow from the surrounding mountains.

7. Talbach falls

At the end of Lauterbrunnen valley near Stechelberg lies the powerful Talbachfall. The water from the River Tschingel Lütschine shoots through the hard rock and plunges below, creating this beautiful waterfall! On your way up, you can watch climbers climb up the waterfall.

Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and watch your step on the slippery stairs leading to the falls.

Lauterbrunnen waterfalls

8. Sefinenfall

The impressive Sefinenfall is located in the lower section of the Sefinen Lütschine river and consists of several smaller cascades as well as a 40-meter-high main waterfall.

If you continue further upstream along the river, there’s another stunning waterfall with a single large drop. To access these waterfalls, take the trail on the left side (south side) of the river. Here, you can explore three beautiful waterfalls!

To reach the Sefinenfall waterfall in Lauterbrunnen, you’ll need to drive deeper into the valley, passing the Trummelbachfall and continuing on to Stechelberg.

Once you reach the end of the road in Stechelberg, you will see the Sefinenfall on the right side of the valley.

Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland-14

9. Wasserfall Sprutz

Sprutz Wasserfall is 235 meters (771 feet) high and one of the highest waterfalls in the region.

The waterfall is situated on the eastern side of the valley and can be accessed by taking a scenic hike along the Sprutzbach creek. Sprutz wasserfall will treat you to cascading water and mist creating an ethereal atmosphere.

Lauterbrunnen waterfalls

10. Holdrifälle

The Holdrifälle, also known as Holdrifäll, is a powerful waterfall located near Stechelberg.

To get there, you must pass Staubbachfall on the right-hand side of the valley and drive to the end of Lauterbrunnen.

From there, it’s a 90-minute walk to the Holdrifälle, which is only 40 meters in height but is a beautiful, two-stage waterfall with strong water flow. A hike that covers Holdrifälle, Schmadribachfall, Talbachfall, and Sefinenfall takes approximately 2.5 hours, with a height difference of 800 meters.

🕵️‍♂️ BONUS: Reichenbach falls (Sherlock Holmes)

If you’re a fan of Sherlock Holmes, then a trip to the Reichenbach waterfalls is a must-do activity. This is the location where the epic showdown between Holmes and his infamous nemesis, Professor Moriarty, took place.

Reichenbach falls is located 44 km from Lauterbrunnen, which is why I didn’t include it in the top 10 Lauterbrunnen waterfalls. It’s close to Meiringen and easy to get to with train or car.

It’s a powerful waterfall with a total drop of 250 meters.

Find the Reichenbach waterfall on Google Maps.

  1. We are obsessed with waterfalls, too, haha! Our favorite waterfall wonderland is Yosemite Valley in California so far. But we haven’t been to Laterbrunnen yet… inspiration for Rivendell? We should see it! 😀

    1. Oh, I’d LOVE to visit Yosemite! My parents have been there twice already and they loved it – I have to make it a priority soon 😀

  2. Wooow! Amazing photos! I will definitely plan to go there. Just a quick question… Is it possible to go there wiht my kid and a buggy?

    1. Thank you, Kolina! Yes, it is totally possible to visit Lauterbrunnen (and the rest of Switzerland) with kids and a buggy. It’s very family-friendly and it’s easy to get around.

  3. nice one…i just miss the photos from abouve..from high up, you can get a great view if you would come and Tandemparagliding with us, we are the local Paragliding Company from Lauterbrunnen..;-)
    We would love to show the Valley from a different perspectiv…hopefully next time!
    Cheers Markus

      1. I’m not sure if Markus sees your comment, but as far as I know there is one paragliding company in Lauterbrunnen and it’s called Airtime Paragliding. I assume he works for them, but please correct me if I’m wrong, Markus.

  4. i love Lauterbrunnen, had lunch and dinner at the Hotel Oberland every day. look forward to going back next year.

    1. Wow, really? I’m putting Colorado on my wish list immediately! I can’t get enough of this beautiful mountain scenery, it’s so captivating.

  5. Hi Miriam,

    Lovely photos. You mentioned that “Lauterbrunnen is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been in my life.”. ^:^ So where are the other most beautiful places?

    Cheers,

    1. Thanks Jiaqi!

      The other most beautiful places I’ve been to are Hallstatt in Austria, Uyuni in Bolivia, Lake Bled in Slovenia and Phi Phi island in Thailand (10 years ago before all the tourists). They are out of this world.

  6. Done! Going there tomorrow! I have a free day tomorrow and Wednesday and I have one more day on my Swiss pass to use and was bouncing the idea of Grindelwald but this post convinced big time to go to Lauterbrunnen. Good thing I have my waterproof boots to wear. Thanks!!!

  7. Hi Mirlam. Thanks for the sharing and amazing post.
    Is it possible to make a day trip from Lucerne and stay overnight at Lucerne?

    1. Hi Elisa,

      I haven’t done it myself, but I would think it is! Swiss trains are easy, although expensive, but it’s worth the trip if you make sure to leave early in the morning. There’s much to see and do in Lauterbrunnen area (the waterfalls, hiking, base jumping, paragliding, Murren, Wengen,etc.) so you could easily spend days here, but if you only have one day it’s still worth going!

  8. Hi there! If you only had one day to spend in Switzerland, would you suggest a stay in Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen? Am looking more in terms of the beautiful swiss scenery.

    1. Lauterbrunnen for sure! I personally liked Lauterbrunnen better because of the many waterfalls, the mountain background, nature and atmosphere. Grindelwald is pretty too, but not anywhere near as magical. If you hike or take the cable car up to one of the higher villages you will get more of that beautiful Swiss scenery! They’re very easy to reach from Lauterbrunnen.

  9. Hey girl! I am planning our second trip through Europe in May and I am having such a hard time figuring out how to get through Switzerland, in general just how to get to Interlaken and lauterbrunnen. Did you take a bus or a local train? Also, did you do a day trip or spend the night here? Thanks for all the inspiration and pics! xoxo

    1. Definitely take the train. It’s so easy and you’ll see when you get there. I used this site: https://www.goeuro.com/ to compare train and busses and downloaded the Rail Planner app, which is an offline timetable for trains in Europe. That way you can check prices and schedules anytime – super easy 🙂

      I spent the night in Interlaken and took the train to Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald and Jungfraujoch. But if I could do it again, I would have stayed in Lauterbrunnen for a few days. It’s so peaceful there whereas Interlaken is more busy.

      Have a GREAT trip. I’m sure you’ll love it – I went in May, too.

  10. What places are available to stay in Lauterbrunnen? I hope to go there for my “I just retired” trip. I retired 2 weeks ago. Would I fly into Zurich?

    1. Hi Daphne,
      I stayed in Interlaken so I don’t know any good hotels or hostels in Lauterbrunnen. You can get there by flying in to Zürich (1,30 minutes by public transportation) or Geneva (2,18 minutes by public transportation). Taking the train in Switzerland is super easy and signs are written in English.

      Congratulations on the retirement. Lauterbrunnen is a beautiful place to celebrate it!

  11. Certainly, an incredible place to admire its beauty. Thank you for sharing the photos. We love to travel through all over Europe. Although, we have traveled (by automobile) extensively, including Confoederatio Helvetica, we missed Lauterbrunnen. We will include it in our next trip if possible. We live in Atlanta (USA) and have family in Madrid, Spain. We enjoy visiting them every year which gives us an opportunity to sneak out and go to all those wonderful countries in Europe. The Scandinavian area will be included once we retire. Cheers!!l

    1. Hi Alberto,
      Lauterbrunnen is certainly a reason to return to Europe, and you will also find lots of beautiful places in Scandinavia (my neck of the woods). Let me know if you need inspiration or tips once you retire.

  12. Hi Miriam…I stumbled upon your page and i feel fortunate.Lovely photos.
    So i am travellign to Lauterbrunnen mid April from Milan for 2days.
    Do you think the Jungrafouch top trip is worth doing on one of the days ? I was hoping for some small hikes in the Lauterbrunnen valley if the weather is on my side.
    What would you suggest to do for 2 days there? 🙂

    1. Hi Mounika,
      Jungfraujoch is definitely worth the trip, but only if the weather is good. You can check the weather forecast before going, but if it’s not clear I suggest you spend your day in Lauterbrunnen. There’s plenty to do in the area, for example visiting Grindelwald, Wengen or doing fun activities in Interlaken. It’s also easy to just spend 2 days in Lauterbrunnen, hiking and seeing all the waterfalls. I would probably just stay in Lauterbrunnen and not rush it.

  13. Hi Miriam,
    I’m planning to visit Lauterbrennen for 3 days in mid June this year. Saw your photos when I was searching for things to in this area. Your photos are breathtaking!!! Please tell me whether the hike to Stechelberg was an easy one? What are your suggestions for 3 days in this area? I’m thinking of visiting the town Thun ,the castle in one day probably taking the boat. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us. Cheers! 🙂

    1. Hi Krishani,

      The hike to Stechelberg is super easy and flat, and you can always take the bus back to Lauterbrunnen if you get tired of walking 🙂

      In the area I highly recommend visiting Grindelwald, Spiez and Oberhofen castles (in Lake Thun) and some of the small mountain villages like Wengen. It’s such a beautiful area with lots to see.

  14. Hi Miriam,

    We are traveling to Switzerland this coming June and stumbled upon your blog while researching for must-visit places in Berner Oberland and your blog just made Lauterbrunnen on my top list.

    Greatly captured photos!!! 🙂 I am wondering which camera do you use? Including what kind of lens if you’re using an dSLR.

    Thank you.

    Best, Camille

    1. So glad to hear that, Camille! I use a Canon 750D and a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens for these photos. A few months later I bought a wide angle lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM and I wish I’d had it with me in Lauterbrunnen. If you have a wide angle, do bring it!

  15. The photos are amazing, thankyou for posting them. We are staying in Tasch but were considering Interlaken or Grindelward for a day trip but you’ve convinced me otherwise.

    Happy holidays

    1. That’s so good to hear! You will definitely not regret going to Lauterbrunnen – it’s one of the prettiest places in Europe.

      Have a great trip.

  16. Hi Miriam hte photos are amazing…
    I am going to swiss next week..where is exactly the place of “My favorite photo from Lauterbrunnen”..a small house with amazing view…I’d love to go there..please tell me the address or how to get there…thank you very much

  17. We stayed in Murren for 3 nights in June. The views of the mountains from there are breathtaking and the air is crisp and so much cooler! We hiked down to Gimmelwald and then took a cable car to the valley floor where we visited a waterfall inside a mountain before taking the bus on in to Lauterbrunnen. You have to visit Murren on your next trip! So lovely!

    1. Oh, that sounds absolutely amazing! I’m adding Murren to my next Switzerland trip, that’s for sure. Thanks so much for your advice, Karen, and I’m glad you had such a great trip.

  18. This is absolutely stunning. So picturesque, pastoral and peaceful. Being there in this setting would seem to be cleansing for the soul. The hiking I am sure would be spectacular! Thank you for sharing!

    1. It sure was, and it was the highlight of my trip to Switzerland. If you’re in the Alps at some point, you should pay a visit – it’s worth it!

  19. Hi Miriam, gorgeous photos! Would u mind sharing in what month were those photos in Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald (the other entry) taken? Many thanks in advance!

  20. your pictures are simply gorgeous! what camera did you use? and this place….just gorgeous…i plan to go this May too….cant wait 🙂

  21. Hi Miriam,

    I was here on Apr 27 followed your guide and tips. I was amazing. Thank you for your great photos, they inspired me a lot.

    Best regards,

    Alita Tran

  22. Wow! you gave justice with your photos of this little beautiful town I loved so much! I was there June 7-8, and every angle of this place is magical! I was able to take a nap in one of the benches overlooking the waterfalls, and you were right – the sound of the Falls was hypnotizing! With the breeze and the view… it was a memorable 2-day-adventure! Am jealous with all the handy cams you have! Enjoy your travels and good luck!

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words, Tish! Lauterbrunnen is so magical, one of my favorite places in the world. I wouldn’t mind retiring here some day 🙂

  23. Hi Miriam,

    First of all , great pics !! I mean totally amazing !!

    I am visiting Switzerland this month end and Lauterbrunnen is in my list for a weekend along with interlaken.
    I would like to visit all the places where you have clicked these beautiful pics.

    Will i be able to see all of this if i take a hike to STECHELBERG. Also how big is the town? I just have one day for Lauterbrunnen, can you suggest me how should i spend it , so i don’t miss any of these picturesque places.

    Thank you !!

    1. Yes, absolutely. Lauterbrunnen is very small so one day is enough to explore the town itself. If you simply follow the main road from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg you can’t miss anything. You’ll see what I mean once you get there 🙂 Have a great trip.

  24. hi Miriam. thank you for the blog,
    I am planning to go to Switzerland Zurich. So how long is the journey to Lauterbrunnen? Do we need to rent a car? Or just take a train? from train station we have to take bus OR hike OR rent a car to view?
    Also If you could please tell we were planning to go Jungfraujoch at the top but I have read its very expensive but surely will be worth.
    since we will be in Zurich for 3-4 days. Can you guide to maximize the trip rather then spending whole money on Jungfraujoch trip.
    I am a bit confused. I love the scenery Lauterbrunnen.
    thank you

    1. Hi Mohsin,
      The easiest would be to just take the train. You might have to go to Interlaken and then on to Lauterbrunnen. You can walk from the train station in Lauterbrunnen. The town is quite small.

      Jungfraujoch is very unique and you can find anywhere else like it. But if you’d rather save the money, I recommend you visit Grindelwald (and Grindelwald First). There are some amazing views to be seen there.

  25. Hello!

    I’m visiting Lauterbrunnen May 3rd and 4th this year! Was this earlier than you were there? I am hoping the leaves will have bloomed by then!

    Your pictures are beautiful! Can’t wait!!

  26. These photos look beautiful! Would love to go there! Is it far away from the train station?

  27. Hi Miriam! I discovered Lauterbrunnen in my 20” (I live iin Australia) and now my husband and I have just returned from our 3rd trip there together – this time for 2 weeks! WE stayed in an apartment right in town and did something different evrry day. DAy trips to Bern, Lucrrne, Thun, , Interlaken and Grindelwald. We took the cabe car up to Grutschalp and walked to Murren, bus to Stechelberg and walked towards the end of the valley, train to Wengen and csble car to Mannlichen and walk to Kleine Scheidegg, train to Grindelwald, csble car to Frst and walk to Bachalpsee (lake). All of these were absolutely magnificent and easy!! You should definitely go back – as we are planning next year…

    1. I definitely will, Karen! And next time I’m bringing my family. It sounds like you had such a wonderful trip and really got to experience the area.

  28. Hello. I was wondering if the SIM card is really required in Lauterbrunnen? I would be visiting this city for 4 days only, do you suggest getting a sim card for myself? I wont be making many calls, just to have google maps working i thought of getting myself one, what would you advice?

  29. Hi Miriam,
    I loved your pictures and information about Lauterbrunnen. We are going to be there the first week in September. We have been to Lauterbrunnen before, but only to catch the cable car up to Murren, which we love love.
    However, you mentioned the hike to Stechelberg. Is it a walking path, or is it a road cars drive on too?

    1. Thanks so much, Mary! I took the main road, which is very little trafficked. It’s in the middle of the valley.

      Have a wonderful trip to Lauterbrunnen 🙂

  30. Hi!

    I am soo so glad i found your blog. Ive been trying to find the location of “My favorite photo from Lauterbrunnen”.
    If i took a car to stechelberg, can i still find that spot?

    Thank you so much.

  31. Hi Miriam. can you recommend the “budget friendly way” of managing food expenses in Switzerland specially if the stay is for a month? Can you also recommend the best backpacker place to stay for this period as well? Thanks!

    1. Hi Jean, I travel mid to high-range so I can’t offer my insight regarding backpacker places. But when it comes to food, you can buy much of it at the grocery stores. For instance, buy sandwich bread and peanut butter and have that for breakfast or lunch.

  32. Dear Miriam and Jean I have been to Lauterbrunnen many times and always stayed at Camping Jungfrau. A rail card can be purchased at the site office or the train station giving you access to the wonderful network of trains and cable cars with which the Berner Oberland is blessed.

  33. Hi there, we have a week planned on May 12th. We would love to do the 10 waterfall route. Does anyone have an estimate on how long this takes if we travel via e bikes?
