Situated in the valley of 72 waterfalls between a number of towering mountains, Lauterbrunnen was visited by J. R. R. Tolkien and became an inspiration for the Rivendell valley in his novels. The one of the highest waterfalls in Switzerland — the Staubbach Fall (297 m) falls down the side of a cliff at the edge of town and contributes to the beautiful view of the valley and Lauterbrunnen. The Trümmelbach falls are ten glacial waterfalls inside the mountain, unique and worth visiting. Also take a day trip by train through the 7 km tunnel inside a mountain to the highest railway station in Europe — Jungfraujoch — The Top of Europe (3,454 m). Jungfraujoch attracts tourists from all over the world throughout the year. The entire tourist complex offers not only views of the largest glacier in the Alps — Aletsch, but also the ice palace with many ice sculptures, a few multimedia exhibitions and the outdoor area with the snow fun park.
