Trummelbach Falls

Travel Tales
Trummelbach Falls is one of those “must see” natural wonders. It’s a series of 10 waterfalls that have cut through the rock to form immense underground channels. Fed by the glaciers of the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau, 20,000 liters of water per second pound their way through the chasm to the valley below. This underground spectacle is made perfectly accessible by a small tunnel and a series of illuminated tunnels, galleries, and balconies. It’s an amazing delight and a tribute to Swiss engineering, which always seems to make natural wonders so accessible. Later, we returned to Lauterbrunnen by bus and could see small farms, and waterfalls on every side. Again, we boarded a train to return to Interlaken and grabbed a hot chocolate (Swiss specialty) for cool weather from a nearby restaurant where the manager was an Indian – Punjabi.

Lauterbrunnen means “numerous springs” and it makes sense as Lauterbrunnen Valley is full of waterfalls with the biggest ones being in Trümmelbach Falls. It is a 20-25 minutes bike ride from the town and you can also take the public bus there. There are ten different waterfall galleries in Trümmelbach which are all included in the ticket price which costs 11 euros per person. They take you up to the first floor in an elevator from where you take the stairs to all ten galleries. Up to 20,000 litres of water per second cascade over the ten glacier falls from a total height of about 200 metres. This is one of the wildest glacier ravines in Europe with the ten waterfalls of the Trümmelbach hidden amongst the rocks.

Trummelbach is the place in Switzerland where you can watch a waterfall inside a mountain! 20 km from Interlaken, Switzerland, is 'Trummelbach' where you can watch the glacier waterfalls finding their way through the mountains before jumping out of the mountain heights as a waterfall. The Swiss have built a tunnel lift inside the mountain which carries you to the top where the glacier melts of Eiger, Monk and Jungfrau enter the mountain crevices. The well illuminated stairways with landings constructed at vantage points, enable the tourist to watch the path of the waterfall inside the mountain. The roar of 20,000 litres of water per second carrying boulder debris takes one close to raw nature.
