Lauterbrunnental
Switzerland

Durch das Tal fliesst die Weisse Lütschine. Der vielen Wasserfälle wegen wird das Lauterbrunnental auch Tal der 72 Wasserfälle genannt. Von Stechelberg (919 m) bis zum Jungfraugipfel (4158 m) beträgt der Höhenunterschied 3239 m, wobei die Horizontaldistanz nur 4630 m beträgt. Der hintere Teil des Tales ist ein Naturschutzgebiet und Teil des UNESCO-Weltnaturerbes Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn.

Das durch Gletscher geformte U-Tal enthält zahlreiche touristische Attraktionen: Neben den oben erwähnten Ortschaften sind es das Schilthorn, der Staubbachfall, die Trümmelbachfälle, das Jungfraujoch, die Lobhörner, der Männlichen, die Kleine Scheidegg mit Eiger, Mönch und Jungfrau.

Das Lauterbrunnental inspirierte J. R. R. Tolkien im Roman Der Herr der Ringe zu dem Ort Bruchtal.

Aufgrund der zahlreichen, fast senkrechten Felswänden gilt das Lauterbrunnental als Paradies für Base-Jumper.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
