The rather small glacier Rosenlaui and its impressive glacier gorge Rosenlaui are located south of Meiringen. Following a secured footpath, you can experience the roaring meltwaters of the glacier inside the ravine. Eventually, they flow into the Reichenbach Falls. Over more than cascades, the water plummets around 300m/186ft into the abyss.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was just as impressed with the thundering water masses as today's visitors, and had his famous detective Sherlock Holmes tumble into this waterfall as he fights his nemesis Prof. Moriarty in the story of 'The Final Problem'. At the cable railway, a memorial commemmorates this fictuonal event. You can take the cable railway to the platform where this duel took place, and enjoy a great view of the waterfalls, or start on one of numerous hikes.
How to get there
Brünigbahn takes you from Luzern or Interlaten to Meiringen. From there, a bus goes to the nostalgic Reichenbach Falls railway. The cable car takes you to the viewing patform.
