Create an itinerary including Trümmelbachfälle
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.

  • This place was very beautiful! Definitely worth visiting if you're in the area. The site is one of the most affordable places to visit in all of Switzerland. I would like to have spent more time...

  • It was absolutely one of the best waterfalls I’ve ever seen before. It’s so amazing and you can walk inside the mountain and you’ll see beautiful view. Moreover it was really cold inside the mountain So you have to make sure that you’re wearing well . Finally I will really recommending you to visit there for an hour it’ll be great for you.
  • Thunderous waterfall , felt in love with this place. Spectacular view, flow of water is enormous. Surrounded by Alps Valleys. This waterfall is one of the main waterfall in the Valley of Lauterbrunnen. Kids under 4 years are not allowed to go , because somewhere it might be slippery, sound of waterfall and darkness.
  • Thundering waterfalls inside a mountain - you can really feel the awesome power of nature! You get to ascend the mountain through a tunnel lift, walk through cave-like tunnels, and see the roaring falls at lots of different locations and view-points. It was a great experience. Does get a bit cold in there! It costs CHF12 per adult and you can buy tickets there. I went in early June so the waterfall was great, and on a weekday so not too many people. Not sure about other seasons.
  • First time I seen such strong waterfalls inside caves. Aperently only place in world you can reach easy to see a glacier waterfall. Can easily be packed in to 2-3hr slot if you in the area. Best to take stairs up and then walk back down.
  • Amazing experience seeing how the water from the glaciers up on the mountains make it's way down to ground. The activity is ticketed and access to this costs CHF14 for adults. You don't need to book tickets in advance but can buy them at the gates. The water flow is very fast and noisy, although there are barriers to protect people from falling off, care should be taken as the ground is wet and slippery. Overall, happy to know that the clean water we see flowing through rivers in Jungfrau region originates mainly from here and seeing why the water is so clean.
