We chose to visit the falls on a wet day.....you get wet anyway! Take the life up to level 10 then walk up to the top. The noise of the falls in some places, was deafening. It had rained hard the night before our visit, the water was unforgiving and thundered down to the bottom of the valley. Unless you... More

Not a "traditional" waterfall as you cannot see water falling straight from the top but the water has somehow cut through the rocks inside the mountain and made a corkscrew shaped hole to find its way out. You can only see it from the inside of the mountain, which is quite a fascinating experience. It's super humid, dark and kind... More

These falls are different from the usual water falls. They are within a mountain cutting through rocks. There is a lift which takes you up. You also have the option of not taking a lift and hiking all the way up. We took the lift while going up and walked while coming down. The journey in the lift is an... More

We were turned away after standing in the queue for 20 minutes with our 16 month old, after being told that children under 3 were not allowed. There is no indication of this anywhere- at the car park, at the beginning of the queue or even at the ticket desk. If you're going to have rules like this (which I... More

It is really a must see falls in Switzerland. It is strong, always roaring and a bit scary too. But that is the beauty if it. Besides it is not like the other falls where the water falls right down from the top to the plunge pool. In this one the water has cut through the rocks inside the mountain... More

Great for a rainy day or a day of light hiking. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the day of hiking the many hiking trails throughout the area!

A slot canyon in the making...... although that will take a few hundred thousand years. The glacial water has cut back into the rock face of the Lauterbrunnen valley but not yet far enough to call the resulting slot a canyon. Instead it has cut a corkscrew vertical cascade through the rock. If you ever doubted the power of falling... More

Beautiful place. Lift takes you to 6th level and is an amazing piece of engineering then a walk upto 10th level is a breathtaking experience. Recommended.

The falls are great any-time, the view around and on the way there is better when there is good visibility. But the actual visit is not effected by the weather, you get wet anyway... The falls are magnificent, an elevator takes you up leaving a bit to hike but it is not difficult.

Try to arrive short time after a rain when the water flow is at extreem. This kind of nature event is one of the best you can get on your trip
