Take a train to Interlaken Ost from there change trains to Lauterbrunnen. Upon arrival you can see a yellow PTT bus (direction Stechelberg) just opposite the station. Tell the driver Schutzenbach and he will stop right by our entrance.


If you would like to walk: Exit the train station following the main street left towards town. Continue walking along the main street past the church which is then on your right. We are approx. 400m after the church on your left. Approx. walking time 15min.
