Hello water3junk,

I'm not an expert on Swiss waterfalls, but in the Bernese Oberland I would recommend:
- the waterfalls in the valley of Lauterbrunnen: Staubbachfall (near Lauterbrunnen), the Mürrenbachfall (near Stechelberg) and the spectaculair Trümmelbachfälle
- the Engstligenfälle (near Adelboden)
- the Reichenbachfall (near Meiringen)

And calling yourself water3junk, maybe you wouldn'l like to miss the Aareschlucht (also near Meiringen). This is a beautiful and at some places narrrow gorge of the river Aare. There is just a small waterfall to be seen in the gorge.

Good luck!

Hello Water3Junk, can you be more specific about which parts of Switzerland you are going to visit? That would make it a bit easier to give tips!

Dear water3junk,

Wandermann already indicated that there are lots of waterfalls in the Bernese Oberland. If you want to limit your travel time and travel costs, you could spend (part of) your holiday there. To the waterfalls that Wandermann listed, I can add these:

- the Giessbach falls on the south bank of lake Brienz;
- the Iffig falls and the Simmen falls close to Lenk (near Adelboden);
- the Reichenbach falls at Meiringen;

You may be interested in the Beatus caves as well. Although they are not in fact waterfalls, these caves within the rocky slopes above lake Thun are very interesting.

Of course there are waterfalls in other parts of the country as well. Do you have a specific region in mind?

You can plan your trips using the online timetable. Have fun!

hi thanks for your helpful replies. Olga, I don't have one region in mind, it all depends on the waterfalls. seeing all possibilities in the bernese oberland I think I should visit that area, I didn't know there are so many of them, it will be a great trip this way. thanks again
