Lauterbrunnen (795 m) lies in an impressive glaciated valley between gigantic rock walls and summits. 72 waterfalls plummet over the walls down to the valley. The Staubbachfall – one of the highest free-falling waterfalls in Europe – inspired Goethe to write his poem «The song of ghosts over waters». The village is the departure point of the cable car with the most spectacular scenery in Europe.
