Lauterbrunnen, CH-3822, Switzerland
Looks Ideal Camping & Chalet Accommodation
We did not stay here, however we walked past this pristine camp and chalet ground as we checked out the village and the Staubach Waterfall.
It is in a beautiful setting and is in first class condition. Whilst we were taking a few photos an old man with his dog stopped for a friendly chat. It appears he owned the park, has owned it for 40 years and invited us in for a look around. We did not accept but continued to chat for 5 minutes. He told us that he and his children oun and run several hotels and other accommodation in Lauterbrunnen.
If you are in to camping or chalets this looks ideal.
I notice Contiki use the park.
Directions: Coming from Interlaken drive past the Lauterbrunnen rail station to the church and the park is nearby.
Camping Jungfrau: Don't camp here!
My trip to Switzerland was very memorable! Mostly because of the beautiful landscape. But was cut short because of how greedy the owner of Camping Jungfrau is. It was high season I understand. But in Europe everywhere we camped they divide their camping site into lots. Not here! They squeezed in as many people as they could. We were required to book and pay deposit in advance and must stay 7 nights. But they also took people who didn't book and "find" places for them. We ended up being sandwiched all 4 directions by big and small tents, not even 1m away from our tent. There was no way to walk around at night without stripping on the some big tent's string they used to straighten their tents. And NOISY!!! So noisy! At our heads we heard snoring sound, on the left and right sides they talked and laughed all night, and early morning at 5AM, 6AM. If you forget something in the car, walk 100m to get as you couldn't park the car where you camped. The Koreans (5 men in 1 tent) next to us were so noisy all night, every night that after few nights like that. We couldn't stand anymore. We had to check out. NO rest after every full day of mountain climbing. They accepted so many people that there was never hot water in male bathroom so my friend was so mad, having cold shower every evening, when it was 12oC outside. It was not clean having too many people. The only good thing was the PAID per use kitchen they had there. Was clean and well equipped. Service from the reception was very unpleasant. The camping is a good 30 min walk from the train station. It's beautiful around, for sure. But, paying USD48 each night for a small lot of camping site, we certainly expected at least some hot water in the evening and some sleep. There are so many camping sites around and hostels... Better located and they had lots assigned. We checked them out. Don't waste money here like we did! Internet was highly charged. And even if I paid, I had to wait 1 hour at night to use my 15min of internet to check mails. Terrible place!
Unique Quality: The camping is surrounded in very scenic surrounding and lovely waterfall. It could have been a nice experience!
We were recommended this campsite by VT member Mustertal at the VT Euromeet in Karlsruhe and what a fantastic recommendation it was - Thanks again!!
Sadly we only had time to spend one night here as Suet, Poons & I had a busy schedule ahead of us & a ferry to catch with only a few days to go but that's another story...
The shower toilets and laundry facilities were superb and camp pitches were lovely and flat. The cable car station in the village of Lauterbrunnen is a short walk away; from here you can go right to the top of Jungfrau or visit the beautiful mountainside village of Murren. Tickets for cable car & train journeys can be bought in reception at the campsite. There is an excellent shop on site and also a restaurant which we did not get chance to try.
As well as camping pitches there are log cabins, caravans and hostels rooms to rent out on this wonderful site.
Unique Quality: Surrounded by outstanding scenery.
Directions: Just past the village of Lauterbrunnen
Camping amongst the Glacial waterfalls
An area of astounding natural beauty.
Probably the most memorable place I've ever pitched my tent!
(of course, you do pay over the odds for it though ;)
Unique Quality: Just the setting.... snow capped mountains, waterfalls, alpine meadows.
Directions: from Interlaken... heading for Lauterbrunnen, follow the signs
a great place for Camping - summer&winter
Jungfrau Camping is a nice campsite close to the Staubbach waterfall and it is open summer and winter. They also have some huts to rent for tourists without tents or camping-gear. - get more infos about it, when clicking on their web-page below !!
Unique Quality: Camping is one of the best possibilities to escape the high prices of hotel-rooms in that area and in most cases you will not need to reserve anything in advance. For your camper you pay 14 sfr and around 8 sfr per person.
Directions: The camping is close to the church - the entrance is 100 meters to the right, before you get to the church of lauterbrunnen.
I lives 6 months in a Chalet on the campground. the first month i stayed in a cabin which was small but ok just to sleep.
Unique Quality: Great views from the campsite.
Directions: Its not so close to the trainstation so beware if you have a heavy case. There is only one main street so follow that one uphill and you reach the campsite.
Swiss Hostel Life
Although we did not stay here, I have to write about this place, because it is right in the middle of where you want to be, if you would like to stay in the beautiful valley surrounded by waterfalls. We went in and checked the place out and thought about staying, but decided against moving, basically because we were lazy. The place was as clean as could be (It is Switzerland) and the reception was very nice in answering all of our questions. I can't imagine there being anything wrong with this place, so thats why I am writing about it. Once you see the location, you will definitely understand why!
Unique Quality: Many, many amenities. Please check their website for all details.
They run a transport van in the winter for skiers and snowboarders at no cost.
Directions: From the train station in Lauterbrunnen, it is about a

More about Camping Jungfrau
The accommodation was called,...
The accommodation was called, Chalet Camping Jungfrau. Our group stayed in a series of these small cabins. There was also a good souvenir shop that offered you a discount if you were staying there. The setting was beautiful as the site is nestled in the mountains, surrounded by a couple of waterfalls, and with a river rushing through it. This place also had a good bar, in a converted bomb shelter.
Camping, Cabins in Lauterbrunnen
These are some of the best cabins you will find in Europe. Lovely big wooden bunks with comfortable mattresses, spacious rooms that sleep two or four with a cupboard to hang clothes, power points for electrical equipment.
They also have hostel dorm beds.
The camping ground is good - it's easy to put up your tents.
The showers cost half a swiss franc per four minutes, you need to have the right coins for the machine. Cold water is free to shower (OK in summer I guess)
Has a laundromat. The staff at reception will help you organise any outdoor activities you want to do.
Cheap accomodation recommended
I will stay in Lauterbrunnen with my friend for one night on 8 Aug. I tried to book the Valley hostel, and the Camping Jungfrau but all are full.
Do you have any hostel / hotel recommendation? Our budget is around USD 35
I would like to book it in advance as I am afraid that many accomodation have been full already!
Looking forward to your reply!
