From Zurich: Waterfalls Valley & Aareschlucht Gorge Day Tour

2. From Zurich: Waterfalls Valley & Aareschlucht Gorge Day Tour

We will greet you at the lobby of your accommodation in Zurich. On comfortable SUV/minivan we will make an unforgettable day trip to the heart of Switzerland - the valley of waterfalls. For all its splendor, Lauterbrunnen itself is quite small: its length is about eight kilometers, and its width does not exceed a thousand meters. But in this small area, there are as many as 72 waterfalls falling down from sheer cliffs. The most famous and most visited of them are Staubbach and Trummelbach. Both of these waterfalls plunge into the valley from a dizzying height of over 300 meters. It was previously thought that Staubbach was taller than Trummelbach, but more recently, after careful measurements, the opposite has been proven. However, everyone who visits Lauterbrunnen should definitely see both of these waterfalls, as well as other beauties of the fabulous valley. The Reichenbach Waterfalls in Meiringen is one of the most famous waterfalls in Switzerland. Opened in 1899, the funicular will take you 244 meters high into the mountains. Visitors from all around the world come to see the place where the famous detective Sherlock Holmes fought to his death with Professor Moriarty in 1891. The Aareschlucht is a section of the river Aare that carves through a limestone ridge near the town of Meiringen, in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. The gorge is an indirect product of glaciation; 10,000 years ago, just as the Ice Age was coming to an end, torrential runoff water from melting glaciers eroded a deep, narrow chasm through the limestone barrier. Although barely 1,4 kilometers long, this passage is bordered by sheer cliffs up to 50 m high on either side. The gorge varies in width from some 30 meters at its widest to just 1 meter at its narrowest.
