Reduced Fares for Family of 6

by mannfamily

Hi, Currently spending 3 days in Lauterbrunnen. What a spot! Wow, beautiful! Anyway, we drove here so no Swisspass, etc. Planning to go up to Mannllichen tomorrow to hike to Kleine Scheidegg and perhaps a couple of other hikes if the weather permits. Surprised that tickets for all of us will be over CHF300. There doesn't appear (from the website) to be any discount for children (11,14,17,18) or for family? Any suggestions? Any other avenues for discount tickets I should be examining?
Thanks in advance.

I suggest that you also follow-up on Purush's thread today in the Switzerland Forum (2 adults and 2 kids traveling from Geneva to Zermatt etc).

Even if there are reductions for children, 17 and certainly 18 will be considered adult. Did your children bring any student IDs? If you go to the station, don't forget to ask for student reductions. Sometimes national student IDs are accepted, if you didn't get an international one. It's worth a try.

You are not entirely correct Christine. Young people get certain reductions up to the age of 25, such as the After-7 pass (free travel after 7 pm, CHF 70 for 1 year). Children under 16 only pay a CHF 20/family pass to accompany parent/s for free. Information on

Travel Tips for Lauterbrunnen

Lauterbrunnen -a quiet village south of Interlaken

by globetrott

Lauterbrunnen is just a small village with 900 inhabitants, about 10 hotels and hostels and 2 camping-sites. Hotels and everything else is a lot cheaper there than in Interlaken or Grindelwald ! Lauterbrunnen is about 20km south of Interlaken and makes a perfect place to stay, when you intend to explore places like Wengen, Kleine Scheidegg, Jungfraujoch or Mürren and Schilthorn.
train-connections are also perfect to Interlaken with 2 trains per hour and a ride of just 20 minutes to Interlaken Ost.

Lauterbrunnen Famous Visitors

by Tolik

People were fascinated by the Staubbach Falls as early as the Middle Ages. The milky-white waters thundering down over dark green rocks have inspired painters, poets and travel writers over the centuries. The Staubach Falls (280m), inspired Goethe’s poem Gesang der Geister über den Wassern” “Song of the Spirit over the Waterfall”, music by Franz Schubert. Felix Mendelssohn composed “Songs without Words’ here; Tchaikovski, Lord Byron and many other celebrities visited it. R.R. Tolkien, my favorite writer, remarked
that “The hobbit’s journey from Rivendell to the other side of the Misty Mountains is based on my adventures in 1911”. In that year Tolkien, aged 19, took a hiking vacation in the Swiss Alps visiting Interlaken, Lauterbrunnental and Mürren. Tolkien’s experiences here gave life to his descriptions not just of Rivendell but also of the Mountains of Moria (he explicitly likened the mountain of Zirak-zigil, the peak on which Gandalf fights the Balrog, to the immaculate pyramid of the Silberhorn.

Main Street Lauterbrunnen

by riorich55

This tip is about the town of Lauterbrunnen. In town you will find a variety of small hotels, a youth hostel, several small food stores and of course places to buy all types of hiking equipment. At the edge of town is the Church and the camping ground. From the Lauterbrunnen our fondest memories were the pictures we took sitting on our balcony with our socks and shoes kicked off and watching time go by in a beautiful setting. While we were sitting taking some funny pictures of our feet and socks with the views in the background a small hummingbird started taking nector from one of the flowers on our balcony. Unfortunately, it was too fast for me to capture on film.

History of the Lauterbrunnen Valley

by Tolik

The inhabitants of the west side of the Lauterbrunnen Valley came from the Lotschen Valley. The first settlements were in Mürren, Gimmelwald, Trachsellauenen and Sichellauenen. Lauterbrunnen village itself, due to the unpredictable flooding of the untamed Lutschine river, was settled later than the higher slopes. Although Lauterbrunnen and Mürren have been known since they first appeared in official records in 1257, and Wengen in 1268, first mention of these emigrants from the Lotschental was found in a document dated in 1331. In 1349 there was a secret alliance between the people of Gimmelwald, Ammerten and Lauterbrunnen with Obwalden in an uprising against the monastery at Interlaken.
Around 1350 monks from the monastery in Interlaken succeeded in extending their sphere of influence as far as Wengen and Wengernalp and eventually the whole Lauterbrunnen valley fell into their hands. In 1487 a church was established in Lauterbrunnen and adorned with a bell that was ordered from their old home of Gsteig, which can still be seen in front of the newer church here today.
The year of 1811 saw the start of mountaineering in Lauterbrunnen and the 1st ascent of the Jungfrau. The last decade of the 19th century witnessed the opening of a number of railways in the Jungfrau region including the BOB - Bernese Oberland Railway - from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen, and the Wengernalp, Schynige Platte and Mürren Railways.
In 1965 the first three sections of the Schilthorn cableway, from Stechelberg to Gimmelwald and then to Mürren, were opened. The last stretch to the peak of the Schilthorn was completed in 1967.

Church Bells

by kathymof

Church bells were used for many things in the past - to announce the time, call people to action, etc. I loved hearing the church bells in Lauterbrunnen but one day when we were there they played for about 20 minutes instead of the normal short time - I loved it but my friend had more sensitive hearing than I and she was covering her ears. I was so glad that I got to experience this.
