Our family is Sherlock obsessed so that does affect our review. This was a day trip from our apartment in Lauterbrunnen. Took a boat from Interlaken to Brienz (highly recommend) then a train to Meiringen. From here you could easily walk but we didn't know the way so took another train one stop, which dropped us 7 minutes from the Reichenbachfalls Funicular. We did all travel with a half fare card and our 14 yr old was free on family card ( highly recommend getting both). At the funicular we purchased combo tickets for funicular and Sherlock museum, 11chf -adult and 8chf - child under 16. The red wooden funicular was adorable. Takes you up steep incline to viewing point. Even have a cut out of Sherlock so we could take a picture of each of the kids as Sherlock with falls in background. Then climb up, up, up with several viewing platforms along the way. Even if you aren't Sherlock crazy, the waterfall is beautiful. One part has punched a hole through the rock wall, it separates and comes back together falling over several ledges. You ultimately cross the falls and come to the spot where that famous illustration shows Sherlock and Moriarty in a deadly struggle. Great photo op, then up some more. The hike from the top back down to the base of the funicular is well marked, just keep looking for the path each time you cross the road. You are headed toward Willigen. At the bottom, go back toward the river and railroad tracks, cross over, carry on straight into the town of Meirigen, continue on the Main Street about 5 minutes until you see a small uniquely elaborate church on left. This is the Sherlock Museum (reviewed separately). Do this now with your combo ticket. Opens at 1:30 which is why we did the funicular first. Rail station is just 2 minutes from here. Direct train back to Interlaken.
