Trümmelbachfälle, Lauterbrunnen
(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Hike around the massive subterranean Trümmelbachfälle, which cascade down a narrow slot canyon carved out by natural forces over thousands of years. Illuminated and accessible to visitors by a tunnel elevator, the World Heritage-listed falls drain the melting snow and ice from three glaciers, carrying up to 20,000 l (5,200 gal) of water per second. The water crashing down the tight canyon walls generates a constant mist in the air and makes the walking paths extremely slippery, so be sure to wear a waterproof jacket and sturdy shoes with non-slip soles. Once you tire of the cave-like tunnels, hike to nearby Lauterbrunnen, an unspoiled village nestled between the walls of a sheer-sided valley. For Trümmelbachfälle and beyond, use our Lauterbrunnen vacation builder to get the most from your Lauterbrunnen vacation.

  • This is a really cool thing to check out, especially if you are camping or hiking through the Luaterbrunnen valley. It is a giant waterfall that is entwined in a rock facing allowing you to walk in an...  more »
  • Very nice location with a beautiful garden until you reach the top of the mountain, there you get a kind of elevator and up. On the way out you start touring in the mountains and to show different angles of the waterfall that runs inside the mountain. Makes a huge noise of waters down the main mountains from there. Very different ride. Need a little bit of breath, because it has a lot of stairs to climb. Recommend

  • Awesome site, location, and experience. The sound and sight of rushing water, 20,000L/sec through these caves was really amazing to take pictures of, but it's even more impressive to just sit back at any of the 10 checkpoints to marvel at what was going on around us. It was a little busier than I would have liked being at a place like this, but really not too bad... and we had great weather which makes a difference (not sure if they're open in all weather conditions, but as long as they're open it's probably still amazing)
  • Definitely worth the visit and the effort to go up the stairs and see the beauty of the waterfall at 10 checkpoints. Plus there is a lift that well get you to the 6th checkpoint and then you will have to go up the rest stairs on foot. Easy location to reach and the drive to there was pleasant.
  • Must see place, Nice to walk along and in hot summer will cool you nicely off, would recommend you bring jacket if you get cold easily. its hard to make perfect pictures as your flash will not reach all ends, however the view is absolutely stunning and breathtaking.
  • Cool (literally) waterfall that goes through the inside of the mountain. Bring water resistant clothing and a good pair of shoes.
  • Impressive waterfall, worth visiting when in the area! Too loud for babies or dogs, though.
