Staubbach Fall

Staubbach Fall

In the valley of 72 waterfalls, the Staubbach Falls are more than just one of many

Visitors gaze in fascination as the Staubbach Falls cascade into the valley. The waterfall takes its name from the dust-like droplets of water that spray in all directions.
Standing 297 metres high, the waterfall can only be reached in summer via the Staubbach Gallery, a balcony embedded in the cliffs. From the foot of the Staubbach Falls, a ten-minute climb leads to the Staubbachhubel, which runs behind the waterfall via a tunnel and up some steps. A visit to the foot of the falls is worthwhile all year round, though: depending on the daylight and season, the experience is always different. But Lauterbrunnen’s landmark, first measured in the 18th century, is not just famous for its appearance. The waterfall is also one of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s inspirations. In 1779, he immortalised the Staubbach Falls in his poem, “Song of the spirits over the waters”.

From fall to fall

What better way to explore the valley of 72 waterfalls than a hike between the Trümmelbach and Staubbach Falls? Along the way, nature reveals its most beautiful side, while information boards provide explanations of these fascinating natural phenomena. Visitors planning a longer stay can make themselves comfortable on the campsite.

Active, educational and inspiring

Besides the Staubbach Falls and the other waterfalls, Lauterbrunnen has even more to offer. For example, freeride fans can wear themselves out on the Grütsch Trail. The Klöppelstube introduces visitors to the 500-year-old art of making lace from silk or cotton. And on the six UNESCO themed trails, guests can learn all there is to know about the region including its history, plants and wildlife.
