amazing walk, though we landed there on a rainy day. it was cold and windy but the place is beautiful.
plan you trip in advance so that you can preserve your energy in the walk. we took boat ride from interlaken to brienz, then a train to meiringen and then another small train followed by walk. at the ost, there is a restaurent you can eat at., at west there is a small counter that sells tickets as well the food.

I did this excursion over 25 years ago and little has changed other than a very nice restaurant and shop area being built! Its a narrow walk in places, not really suitable for pushchairs and very limited access for wheelchairs. The two way walk took me about an hour.

The views through the narrow and winding river gorge were amazing. Signs posted along the walkway gave understandable explanations. Highly recommended

I think it's about the fifth time I visited the Aare Gorge with different foreign tourists and each time they are very pleased. The best is to enter on the upper side and walk down to the exit in Meiringen. If you have to get back to the initial point (e.g. to the car), then I suggest travelers to enter in Meiringen, because the most spectacular part of the gorge is rather close to Meiringen.

Look up from the bottom of this skinny gorge and be glad that you did not fall into a glacial crevice (glaciar long gone) and end up at this then-forlorn spot. The walk takes you through a cave system and along little platforms that look down over the railing to the river below.
