I will be visiting Schilthorn and need return back to Lauterbrunnen train station via Stechelberg. After visiting Schilthorn, I will takecable down from Schilthorn and change at Brig, Murren and Gimmelwald cable station to get to Stechelberg bottomstation. From there, I would like to get a transport back toLauterbrunnen. May I know what transportation is available from Stechelberg to Lauterbrunnen?
Please advise if there is a better route to return from Schilthorn to Lauterbrunnen. Could anyone also advise what is the name of Stechelberg bottom station?

the ground station is called Stechelberg LSMS. Buses leave at 14.12 then half=hourly till 17.12 and hourly after that. The journey to Lauterbrunnen takes about 13 minutes. It is also possible to get off cablecar at Murren, walk through the village to the train station where you catch train to Grutschalp which connects with a funicular down to Lauterbrunnen. The train leaves Murren at 14.36 and half-hourly. total journey time about 21 minutes. Hope this helps. Can recommend either route - Murren is a pretty village with some nice little cafes and souvenir shops and lovely views of the Jungfrau range. There is less to see at Stechelberg though there is a café there and you will see waterfalls along the bus route. Depending on how much time you have, you could also get off bus to visit Trummelbach Falls (famous waterfalls down through the mountain) and then resume bus journey to Lauterbrunnen. Just keep eye on time as you don't want to just miss a bus and wait long time for next one (or you can walk along a pleasant path to Lauterbrunnen!).
