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.
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 free parking, a small souvenir shop and a self service restaurant with a scenic terrace. The restaurant has drinks, both hot and cold, homemade specialties as well as cakes and pastries.
If you are going to Trümmelbach Falls by train, go via Interlaken toward Lauterbrunnen. A bus will take you from there to the Trümmelbach Falls stop.
To get to Trümmelbach Falls by car, take the Wilderswil exit from the main road and continue driving toward Wilderswil and Lauterbrunnen. About 3 km after passing through Lauterbrunnen you will arrive at Trümmelbach Falls.
