Lauterbrunnen with its most famous landmark, the impressive Staubbach Falls, is the gateway to one of the most spectacular valleys in Switzerland. A total of 72 waterfalls gush down into the Lauterbrunnen valley from the vertical cliff faces, some of which are several hundred metres high. This mostly flat walk from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg offers deep insights into this unique natural spectacle.
Even in the past the magnificent landscape of Lauterbrunnental Valley fascinated many a mountain hiker. The characteristic trough valley is depicted in many school books as a classic example of this type of valley. The unique and extraordinary waterfalls in particular made a lasting impression. Goethe was inspired by his memories of Staubbach to write his famous Song of the Spirits over the Water. Staubbach, Trümmelbach and Schmadrifällen waterfalls are some of the water wonders of the valley.
