“Aare gorge combined with Reichbach water falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

If you intend to visit Aare Gorge near Meiringen, ask for a combined ticket to get a cheaper ride on the little cog railway leading to the Reichbachn waterfalls. Be aware that the Reichbachwaterfalls are not suitable for wheel chairs or prams. The way to the most beautiful spots of the waterfall is rather steep and you need a bit of a condition but it is worth the sights. If you are brave go further up, walking or also by postal car from Meiringen or your own car (narrow winding street) to the Rosenlaui waterfall. There are restaurants on your way I found the drink (1st Restaurant on the way up) terribly expensive and service careless and would recommend to have something in a Rucksack. Wear good shoes too it is uneaven!

“Gorge ofr Aare and Reichenbachwaterfalls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

If you visit the gorge of Aare do not miss the Reichenbach waterfalls. Get a combined ticket for both places. There is a little cog railway taking you up to the falls, but then walk on and see spectacular views of the water. Be aware, the way is steep and does not suit for handicaped people, or push chairs - you need a fairly good condition. There are more waterfalls to see further up. Take the postal coach or your own car from Meiringen if you dare driving on narrow and winding streets. The postal coach has always PRIORITY if you happen to meet it.. At the entrance of Aare gorge is a lovely playground for younger children. The restaurant is big, but we haven't tried it, we had a pick nick.

“wonderful formations place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

The place is really attractive and one of the rarest place to see such formations caves and tunnels. There you will see the valley with a cold breeze and cold tunnel at the end you will see a nice view to the mountain if there is no fog. It's really awesome when you cross to this place you raining will fall however if you just went to the gate there might be no raining! Wonderful visit with kids, prepare to walk for more than hour. You will need the stroller for the kids, you can use it there. When you visit this place plan to visit also Reichenbach Fall and Sherlock Holmes Museum (if you are interested in the famous story of Holmes) since they are very close by!

Great adventure. Be sure and take the train back into town. You must cross the swinging bridge to catch the train. Restaurant has good food there as well.
