Winter in Lauterbrunnen: Lauterbrunnen is in the middle of the Jungfrau Ski Region. On the right side of the valley, is the ski region of Mürren/Schilthorn, easily accessible by new cable car (Dec 06) from Lauterbrunnen. The train to the ski region of Wengen / Männlichen / Kleine Scheidegg / Grindelwald, on the left side, also departs from Lauterbrunnen. All of these trains are included in the sports pass.

The world-famous panorama of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau can be seen from almost every spot in the Jungfrau Ski Region. 44 trains, cable cars, chair- and ski lifts bring you up to 213 km of ski piste. But it's not only for skiing, the hills offer 50 km of sledging pleasure, 100 km hiking and cross-country skiing. For non skiers a hike and sledge pass is available for 2 or more consecutive days at a reduced price. Snowshoe trekking is also available. In Sulwald, above Isenfluh, is a well marked Snowshoe path (approx. 2 h).

Paragliding and Heli-Skiing are also available.

Spring/Summer in Lauterbrunnen: In Spring and Summer time, there are infinite possibilities for hiking and mountain biking and, of course the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are always in view! All abilities are well catered for. In addition, there is White Water Rafting, Paragliding, Base and Bungee Jumping and Mountaineering all in the surrounding areas. Sailing is available on the lakes at Interlaken (Thun and Brienz) with the stunning backdrop of the mountains.

Summer sporting highlights include the Inferno Triathlon (Thun - Schilthorn) and Inferno Half-Marathon (Lauterbrunnen - Schilthorn), in mid-August and Jungfrau-Marathon (Interlaken - Lauterbrunnen - Kleine Scheidegg), at the beginning of September with the runners being visible from the balcony. There is also summer sledging available for the children at Pfingstegg (Grindelwald).

Out and about: The revolving restaurant at the top of the Schiltorn should not be missed, neither should the view from Winteregg. There are also lovely cafes and bars locally and in Gridelwald and Interlaken. More contemporary eating places are available in Thun. There are great cycle trails and hiking paths for all abilities so why not try the Eiger trail or just a gentle stroll by the river? Or take the bikes up to Mürren and cycle back down to Lauterbrunnen valley with the same breathtaking views. Excellent local produce is available such as cheese and hams and bread. Why not have fun with a Swiss Fondue. The lakes and Interlaken are only 8 miles away and have several lidos and beaches and together with the pool in Lauterbrunnen and the Alpine centre in Mürren, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the water. The helicopter station is 300m away. A trip over the snow covered Eiger at any time of year is truly amazing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were in Switzerland for a week's holiday in May 2012 and stayed at the Jarvis apartment. The location is beautiful and being surrounded by mountains and waterfalls makes a stellar setting. The apartment is spacious, cozy and well appointed. The huge collection of DVDs for children were a treat for our kids.



The hosts were warm and friendly right from the time of making the enquiry. Heidi was very prompt with responding to emails which made our communication ever so easy. We were quite impressed with how they kept in touch with us even after we got back home from our holiday.



There are a lot of activities in the Lauterbrunnen valley that are worth exploring. It was also a good point from which we got around seeing different parts of the country. The local bus stop is just a few yards from the apartment which makes for easy getting around.



We had a wonderful time with great memories to cherish and the apartment was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in the apartment with two teenage kids. The space was more than enough - for sleeping, washing, cooking, eating and relaxing :) The apartment was perfectly clean and well maintained, we had there everything we needed. There is plenty of space to store cloths and belongings. The kitchen is full of utensils. You have two bathrooms which is pretty convenient when returning from hiking :) The view from balcony is beautiful. Getting just out of the door you can see beautiful waterfall lit up every evening. Getting to a train station takes 10+ minutes walking or just 2-3 min by bus - a bus stop is nearby.

David is extremely helpful person easy to contact with whenever you need.

Staying in the Jarvis apt was really great pleasure and we can recommend it for everyone.

Very comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable for the 6 of us. The location is great and very convenient.

The only negative point is a "ticking" noice that is on 24/7 and seems to come from a utility room on the ground floor.

Wonderful property! Great views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five absolutely loved staying at this property. It was clean and spacious with nice living areas and bedrooms. The views were stunning and the area was easily walkable. It was only a 10 min. walk to the train station. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We would not hesitate to stay at this property again.

Great location, beautiful views, comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this Lauterbrunnen area property. You could just sit on the deck all day and watch the changes on the mountains, but, with all the hiking, skiing, and other natural beauties in the area it served as a great place to come back to each night.

The property was clean & well furnished. We cooked breakfast and dinners each day & the kids loved at home fondue nights. We shopped at the larger markets in Interlaken. We really did enjoy sitting out on the deck watching the water fall and the view south to Jungfrau.

It was an small walk back into the Lauterbrunnen proper with only one hill to climb.

We had a great time there.

A perfect base to explore the Jungfrau region all year round, Lauterbrunnen is situated near the most impressive glaciated valley of the Alps. Lauterbrunnen means 'many fountains' and throughout the entire valley, a total of 72 waterfalls cascade from the mountains. There are also the spectacular Trümmelbach waterfalls. These glacier falls (10 in total inside of a mountain) attract many people from all over the world to the mountains from April to November (closed during winter). Lauterbrunnen is the departing point to the more famous, car-free resorts of Wengen and Mürren, as well as the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe (the highest train station in Europe) and the Schilthorn/Piz Gloria. There are superb train links to Interlaken (45m from Bern, 2 h Basel 2.5h Zurich/ Geneva) so a car is not essential. If travelling by car, good road links to the French motorway network mean a comfortable 9 hours from Calais or Zeebrugge. Eurostar via Paris is also an option.

Other Activities: White water rafting, shooting

Ski: Lauterbrunnen is a great base to explore the Jungfrau Ski Region. There are 45 mountain trains, cable cars, chair and ski lifts, with 213km of pistes for skiers and boarders. Also 100km of winter hiking and X-country paths, and 50km of sledge runs. From the apartment you can take the bus to Lauterbrunnen station in 5 minutes, then train to access skiing above Wengen, or take bus to Schilthorn cable car in 7 minutes to access Mürren skiing .Grindelwald can be reached from Kleine Scheidegg (wonderful views) or drive there in 20 minutes. For the adventurous skier there is the Lauberhorn run above Wengen, or the wonderful 16km long run from the top of the Schilthorn back to Lauterbrunnen, rated as one of the best runs in the world with stunning views, by the Daily Mail Ski and Snowboard magazine. The Sunday Times chose the pistes at Mürren as having some of the best scenery in the world. Excellent English-speaking ski-schools are based in Wengen and Mürren.
