This is one of the most amazing places I've ever been to. You have to see it (and hear it!) to believe it! It it the worlds only accessible, in-mountain waterfall, and it's really something. Very young children may take a dislike to sound of the water as it thunders through the mountain, and you have to shout at times... More

As others have said, this natural exhibit of water carving stone is amazing! This is a rare waterfall INSIDE a mountain! The temperature is on the chilly side, so bring an extra layer and good shoes....the walking surface and stairs can be wet from spray. Don't worry about capturing the perfect photo as everyone tries to do (myself included).....it's difficult.... More

When my son turned 13 I took him over to Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland, so we could spend a week hiking the Swiss Alps. During one of our early on hikes we came across the Trummelbach Falls, nestled into a crack in the great valley walls. The falls forms a twisting cyclone-like path almost completely inside a cavern. The Swiss have conveniently... More

Lots of stairs, but a fantastic sight!! The waterfalls are so powerful, loud, and you just feel so small! It is slippery, so wear good shoes, and just be warned that they don't let you bring babies under two (because it is so loud), but we talked them into letting us bring our 18mo old. DON'T miss this!

This was a last gasp visit during a brief stay in Lauterbrunnen, Im so glad I made the effort. The scale and power of the falls in the mountain was awe inspiring. It just has to be seen if you are anywhere in the locality!

Great caves through one has to climb up, make the pleasure of savouring nature even more. You must be careful while the steps that at times wet but have grab rails alongside to help. Protect your camera(s) from the spray that is everywhere and be suitably clad - it can become a wee bit nippy inside. You can have snacks... More

The water falls cutting through the mountain, is beautiful. Went there early in the morning, a short drive from Lauterbrunnen and we reached the base of the mountain. There is an elevator inside the mountain that goes up to the fifth level, after that its a gradual climb with a few steps here and there. The view of the misty... More

Awesome display of the power of water+time -- a waterfall that carved its way *inside* a mountain. There's even a part where the waterfall carves a corkscrew shape into the rock. Tip: Instead of taking the bus there, walk through the Lauterbrunnen valley instead -- it's less than 1 hour by foot, and the views are absolutely stunning.

very beautiful location. Not to be missed. Very near to Lauterbrunnen (a short bus journey). There is an escalation which takes you through a tunnel inside the hill to reach the top.

Only the Swiss would tunnel into a waterfall. Worth the effort to see. Walked from Lauterbrunnen to the falls and then back to Lauterbrunnen. Found the local food fair and walked in the rain. A bit of everything.
