Trümmelbachfälle, Lauterbrunnen

(4.6/5 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.

  • It is a visit to the interior of the mountain where you can see the force of the water as it has broken rock. It is a waterfall with 10 stations to view the waterfalls. It really impresses. Don't forget to see it. Entry costs 11 francs. It is a bit difficult to get if you don't report and do not know the language. They go somewhat unnoticed. You have to go Lautherbrunnenn and before you reach the cable car are to the left.

  • Very beautiful waterfalls. Ideal for a hiking trip. On rainy days, it is not appropriate for a visit.
