Lauterbrunnen Valley

The town of Lauterbrunnen lies at the bottom of the U-shaped Lauterbrunnen Valley (Lauterbrunnenthal) in Switzerland, one of the deepest valleys in the Alpine chain, compared to the surrounding mountains of the Bernese-Oberland region. Lauterbrunnen derives its name from the water, first mentioned in 1240 as in claro fonte, meaning “clear spring.” Staubbach Falls, less than 1 kilometer from town, is one of the highest cascades in Europe formed of a single unbroken fall.
