The legendary mountain railways make this car-free village one of the most accessible resorts to get to, and the range of skiing, snowboarding and winter walking options is huge. Best of the Slopes The Lauberhorn is a legendary race but, essentially, the rest of the season it is a run anyone can take. Not as tough for a cruise as it is as a race, it does have the steep but avoidable Zielschuss section towards the end. The station buffet at Kleine Scheidegg is good value and good grub, and the Tipirama wigwam there gets lively late afternoon. The Start Bar on the Lauberhorn is good too.

For a resort that is so famous for the annual Lauberhorn World Cup downhill race, which takes place every January, it is remarkably small and one of the most quaint destinations in the Alps. The focus of the resort is on a short main street lined by shops and several large Victorian-style hotels. Adding to its charm, the village is reached only by cog railway and is largely traffic-free, although there are electric vehicles run by hotels and a few petrol vehicles including taxis. The railway continues up the mountain, as one of the ski lifts. The alternative way up is by cable car, which has cabins with roof-top viewing platforms, from the centre of the main street. For more far-reaching views, the railway continues above the ski area, through a tunnel in the Eiger to Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe at 3,m. On the way there are stops at two viewing galleries carved out of the sheer north face.
