The ‘Icing’ on the cake - the jewel in the crown of our trip to Switzerland.

Our first visit to Switzerland with the caravan and glad to say all went well. We arrived after a four hour journey just as it started raining. Overall uneventful until the last half mile where you have to navigate a narrowish road leading to the site. It’s no problem as long as you can avoid the pedestrians and not meet a lorry coming in the opposite direction as we did. A warm welcome on arrival and thankfully good English spoken at reception we were shown to our fully serviced pitch. Switzerland is not cheap and site fees were around £60.00 per night. Our pitch was a mixture of grass and gravel based hard standing. Do not expect the same standard of pitches you find on a UK club site and some of these do get waterlogged and muddy when it rains heavily, but wooden duck boards are readily available if required to help provide a water free base to stand on. The site is open all year and there are many pitches taken up by a mixture of caravans and cabins which look to be on a semi permanent basis judging by the strengthened roofs to protect against the snow in winter. In addition there were also many log cabins which were let out by the site to visitors. The general amenities are fantastic with a bar and restaurant on site as well as a well stocked shop that did fresh baked bread every morning.There are three amenity blocks on the site, one looks very new, and the showers and toilet facilities were immaculate and the showers were to die for. The site caters for walkers, skiers, hikers and mountain bikers with additional facilities for those camping, including a communal kitchen and dining room, ski storage room and clothes drying facilities. Lauterbrunnen is a lively village with plenty of shops, cafes and bars as well as a transport hub best placed to utilise the Swiss Travel Pass. Whichever direction you look the surrounding scenery is stunning whatever the weather. We bought a three day travel pass and visited Interlaken Grindelwald, (including Grindelwald First) Wengen, Murren, Kliene Schiedegg the Mannlichen plateau and the Eiger Glacier, as well as Jungfrauhoff (top of Europe) using a variety of mountain trains, cable cars, gondolas the new Eiger Express cableway to cross the area viewing the spectacular scenery in rain cloud and sunshine. Expensive yes!!! CHF250 each but used properly you can get everywhere you want and see many of the highlights of the area so it is value for money. All in all a five star site and definitely one of the best we have stayed on, with only one minor criticism which is outside their control - we were pestered by flies some of the time, mainly in the evenings which were an irritant when trying to eat outside.
