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.

  • If you’re in the area you must see this waterfall. It is one of the best waterfalls I’ve seen. A small fee to get in but we’ll worth it. Great views on the way up too.

  • Definitely worth a visit. Plan for an hour if it's not too crowded. Lots of steps and plenty of warnings that it could be dangerous for young children so proper supervision is a must. It gets quite chilly inside so bring a jacket (waterproof is helpful but not an absolute). Delightful pastries and other refreshments are available just before the ticket booth.
  • This place is incredible, highly recommend this to visit. Take the elevator up, filled the remaining steps up. Then walk down all the way. Be ready to see massive power coming down the canyon of this beautiful waterfall.. if you are agreeing then thumbs up this review. We rented e-bikes to cruise Up from interlaken on the trail. Highly recommend that instead of walking the trails. We covered way more territory by doing this.
