Lauterbrunnen is a place I wanted to visit for a long time, but never really got around it. Finally last easter monday I found my way into this beautiful valley in Bern.
When you arrive in Lauterbunnen at the Train station you have the option to take a train up to the Jungfraujoch, but it’s quite costly, here the price list. Instead my sister and I took the cable car to Grütschalp, which the price is fair. This hike is perfect for people who are not used to hiking but want to enjoy the Mountains and mountain air. Also you can only walk a section and then take the train to Mürren oder back to Grütschalp, which makes it perfect for a hike with children.
My sister and I did this hike, which was a first. I asked her out of the blue a few days earlier and she agreed to join me on this one. It was a great day and I am confident that in the future, my sister will join me on other, similar hikes.
