Lauterbrunnen (Lauterbrunnen)


At a Glance

Lauterbrunnen station has three functions:

  • It provides access to the centre of the beautiful village and its stunning waterfall - though the road which leads up from the station is moderately steep.
  • It offers a transfer, in a matter of minutes, between the BOB trains which travel between Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken Ost station - and the WAB trains on the Lauterbrunnen - Wengen - Kleine Scheidegg route.
    The trains typically use gleis (platforms / tracks) 2 and 3, to facilitate an easy transfer.
  • It offers a transfer to the Bergbahn cable car, which connects Lauterbrunnen to Grütschalp station, from where the BLM Railway goes to the village of Mürren
    Another cable car from Mürren goes up to the mountain top at Schilthorn, which was used as a location in the James Bond movie, On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

The access to the base station of the Bergbahn cable car is at the far end of gleis (platform / track) 1, a pedestrian crossing leads across the street and the station is straight ahead on the other side.
If your train arrives at gleis 2 or 3, you can use the passage under the tracks to access gleis 1 - elevators and slopes are available
The cable car departs every 15 mins the best of the views are on the left hand side.

The BLM Railway is on the side of the mountain, so all of the views from the train are on the left hand side, when facing forward on the train to Mürren,
So when the gondola is busy, it can be a good idea to remain by the doors, so that you can be among the first to board the train.
Left luggage lockers are available in the Bergbahn base station.
