The life of a river is complicated. Complicated by changing weather patterns and seasons. The raging Weisse Lütchine is always underway carrying massive amounts I glacial moraine from melting glaciers and capturing the many rivers, streams and tributaries that come into this ancient Lauterbrunnen Valley.
A stroll beside the Weisse Lütchine from Stechelberg to Lauterbrunnen will give you an appreciation for how it changes in mood , speed and sound. Always a postcard, it is rarely not featured in famous Insta shot spots.
The constant river management projects of the local council can be seen at many points along the length of the Weisse Lütchine before it joins up with it’s sister from Grindelwald, the Schwarz Lütschine at their rendezvous point in Zweilütchine.
Widening the river helps to slow down this bustling river and protect the adjoining farming pastures from flooding. The valley was first and will always be, a significant agricultural region. So the farmers are most grateful and of course the canoeists who enjoy the swiftness are still never disappointed with the changes.
