Valley of 72 Waterfalls

On the trail of Goethe

Des Menschen Seele
Gleicht dem Wasser:
Vom Himmel kommt es,
Zum Himmel geht es,
Und wieder nieder
Zur Erde muss es,
Ewig wechselnd.
(Goethe)

The Lauterbrunnental is the valley of 72 waterfalls. Experience exhilarating scenery in the most glorious glacial valley in the Alps. Discover waterfalls at close quarters. Marvel at picturesque, plunging cascades on the trail from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg. The trail is fairly flat and easy, suitable for prams and push-chairs.

The most famous waterfalls


Staubbach Fall – landmark of Lauterbrunnen and one of Europe's highest free-falling waterfalls (287m). Made famous by J.W. Goethe's poem "Gesang der Geister über den Wassern (Song of the Spirits Over the Waters). Mürrenbach Fall – the mighty. As the snow melts or after heavy rainfall, the waterfall foams and thunders over the 417m high Mürrenfluh cliff.

Trümmelbach Falls – 10 glacier wateralls inside the mountain, awarded 3 stars by the Michelin Guide. On hot summer days and after heavy thunderstorms, up to 20,000 litres of water per second thunder through the narrow gorge.

Talbach Fall - We invite you to experience the "Talbachfall", a glistening hidden gem. The water shoots through the hard rock like an arrow, to plunge into the foaming cauldron below. The catchment area of the Talbach Falls is the region of the River Tschingel Lütschine.
