Trümmelbachfälle, Lauterbrunnen

4.6
#1 of 14 in Nature in Jungfrau Region
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.

  • A great scenic walk to the caves. Was great to see, only downside is i wish it was bigger and more to explore. But glad i can tick this off my list now.  more »
  • Be prepared to walk a lot.. But it would be worth it. The water fall is unique and so it the climb to watch is from the top. The walk upto the foot of the climb is also quie picturesque..  more »
  • Trummelbach falls are really beautiful.. You can opt for the lift moving at 45° angle.. And after that you have to walk. It's really cold inside the mountain so take caps, mufflers and gloves with you...  more »

  • Amazing place but you can't get near the waterfall as they have built a stair structure for accessing the top. You can enjoy the views from there. There is a lift which takes you halfway through. Although you have to walk a lot to go to the top. I would suggest coming down by stairs as it offers amazing scenery of this place
  • We visited Trummelbach Falls in June 2017 and were awestruck. So amazing and so under-publicised. We arrived about 3:30pm and there was no waiting to get on the lift and the walking up through the tunnels was no problem. There must be a dozen viewing points where you can almost reach out and touch the water. The only problem is you are so close your camera may get wet with the spray. Take a rain jacket and waterproof camera with flash. The sound of the water was almost deafening.
  • It was made a tourist attraction.. But on second thought not a great sight.. But you will definitely Marvel how inside a mountain waterfalls exist & they were discovered..
  • $20 for 2 people to get in? Don’t accept credit card? You’d think if they’re trying to make money from a international tourist attraction site they could at least make it convenient for people to get in and PAY.
  • Great natural wonder. The lift to the top to view the falls was wonderful. Beware though that children below 4 years are not allowed.
