Trummelbach Falls, Lauterbrunnen Reviews
These magnificent glacier waterfalls are a wonder of nature - copious gushing waterfalls - emanating from a glacier - flowing deep inside a huge rocky mountain - not visible from outside. There is miners' lift inside the mountain to take you up to Trummelbach Falls and then you climb the internal walkways observing the spectacular sight of the gushing glacial waterfalls. Overall - an awesome experience - a "must visit" in Switzerland.
This is a must see experience for those who appreciate the wonder of nature. There are quite a lot of steps so this may not be suitable for the elderly or those with walking difficulties. It can be a bit chilly and wet when the water is at it's fastest and greatest flow, so a light weight jacket might be useful for some people. Easily accessible every half hour by bus No.141 from opposite Lauterbrunnen Train Station or from Stechelberg Schilthorn Station if coming from the opposite direction. The Tea house at the start of the pathway in is worth stopping at for great cakes and just to enjoy the location.
It’s good place but difficult to reach as you need to walk in descent and toboggan way When you reach to last possible place you can see it partially from back and you can feel the drizzle of the waterfall. When you come down you also can visit some kids playground and nearby you can see the wadi of the water fallen from the mountains
A magnificent waterfall but hiding in Mountain! A genuine wonder of nature. The Trummelbach waterfall moves through large crevices in the mountain. The fall is not visible from outside. To reach the top, one has to climb a slanting tunnel carved out in the mountain. The shaft includes ten windows through which the waterfall is visible. But one better alternative is there of using the funicular elevator. One of the windows is only just on the exit from the elevator. The view is grand here itself. But to appreciate the waterfall really, one must climb the remaining steps & reach the highest window. The roaring waterfall flows through the gaps in the mountain. The view is utterly breathtaking. The froth & mist makes the waterfall milky white. Because of the mist, the steps in the tunnel become slippery & one has to take care while traversing it. Off course handrails are there & lighting is sufficiently bright. As well as, the mobile camera should not become wet & slip from the palm!
This is a must see! We were very tired when we walked by this place, and very wet because it was raining. So we almost skipped it. But we were very glad we stopped. A waterfall carving it's way into the mountain is quite a site!
