Staying in lauterbraunnen in last week of October


We're planning to stay in lauterbraunnen on the 28th-31 of October.

My questions are:

1. How to get there from Lucerne?

2. Would it still be possible to do hiking on the mountains or anywhere where we would see cow bells?

3. And which is the best hiking trail, if still possible, to take?

4. We would also like to go to the top of jaungfru. Would that still be ok?

Thank you.

Have you taken into account that the end of October is 'closed' season for most of the hotel and restaurants in the BO villages. They can be very much ghost towns as they close between seasons. Some (if not all, you'll need to check) of the cable cars and gondolas will be closed for maintenance. The Jungfrau railway is always open.

You may be better to stay in Interlaken or suburbs as hotels and restaurants will be open and they'll be a better atmosphere. Interlaken is ok off season.

Hiking will be so what limited due to no access to certain areas due to the cable car closures.

1. From Lucern to Lauterbrunen, you can go by train.

2&3 Hiking is some routes might be ok but it depends on weather. Eiger trail is the most beautiful and rather easy to hike. But during that time is unpredictable. You will need a good waterproof shoes as it can be wet. For the cows, I don't think you will them as farmers take them down as of mid September.

3. Jungfrau is open all year but check the weather before you go up.

Good luck with the weather!
