This unique spectacle in the Lauterbrunnen Valley comprises no fewer than 10 glacier fed waterfalls inside a mountain. The impressive falls - floodlit and accessible by a special tunnel lift - carry up to 20,000 litres of water every second! 

These are Europe's largest subterranean waterfalls and Lauterbrunnen is often called the 'valley of 72 waterfalls'. The Trümmelbach Falls are open from 09.00 to 17.00 daily from the beginning of April to the beginning of November and from 08.30 to 18.00 in July and August.


Highlights

The Trümmelbach Falls

The Trümmelbach Falls are the world's only glacier waterfalls that are accessible underground by lift, galleries, tunnels, paths and platforms. They alone carry the meltwater of the glaciers from the Jungfrau down to the valley. The water carries with it over 20,000 tons of boulders and scree per year and causes the entire mountain to shudder and make a thundering noise.

Hiking

The Trümmelbach Falls are part of the Lauterbrunnen Valley's 72 waterfalls, among them also the imposing Staubbach Falls. There is a recommended hiking tour - on mainly flat ground - leading from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, past water gushing from vertical rock faces that are several hundred meters high

Restaurant

The Trümmelbach Falls facilities include a small souvenir shop and a self service restaurant with a scenic terrace. The restaurant has drinks, both hot and cold, homemade specialities as well as cakes and pastries.


Directions
