    Tüfelsschlucht

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    From the center of the village leads a enchanted seemingly path through the Tüfelsschlucht to Allerheiligenberg. On the easy walkway you will discover behind each winding a new little magic land of caves and crevices, covered in green - and in the middle our way leads us over bridges and footbridges along the Cholersbach.

    Trientschlucht

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    Here, the Trento tribe has dug into the Mont Blanc massif over millennia. Today, at the bottom of the 200-meter-deep gorge, you can follow the course of the turquoise-blue waters comfortably on boardwalks and be amazed by the sound of the water. It becomes particularly exciting on the two bridges in dizzying heights, which cross the gorge.

    Hours: May to October
    Admission: adults 8 CHF, children (6 to 16 years) 6 CHF

    Aareschlucht

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    Opening hours:
    West Entrance April 15 to November 1, Eastern Entrance May 1 to October 16, 8.30am to 5.30pm. In July and August until 18.30 and from Thursday to Saturday evening lighting until 22 clock (only over the west entrance).

    Gorges du Durnand

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    Entering the boardwalks of the Gorges du Durnand (or "Durnand Gorge"), you are in another world. A wild world of imposing cliffs and a powerful stream of wild torrent. For one kilometer you follow the wooden footbridge along the vertical wall of stone, through tunnels, over stairs and galleries, and are almost overwhelmed by the forces of nature when the water shoots over 14 steps in the valley of the Dranse.

    Opening hours: May 1 to October 31, 9am to 6pm
    Admission: adults 8 CHF, children (6 to 15 years) 5 CHF

    Trümmelbachfälle

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    With loud thunder and roar, the water rushes into the washed out boiler, while it gurgles and lathers constantly. The entire meltwater of the Jungfrau Glacier flows through here, up to 20,000 liters of water per second. The Trümmelbach Falls are considered the largest underground waterfalls in Europe. They are located in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, the "valley of 72 waterfalls".

    Of all the underground waterfalls worldwide, the Trümmelbach Falls are the only ones that are accessible. Lifts, galleries, tunnels and platforms are part of the way.

    Hours: From 9 am to 5 pm daily from the beginning of April to the beginning of November, depending on the weather, from 8.30 am to 6 pm in July and August

    Admission: Adults 11 CHF, Children (6 to 15) 4 CHF

    Gornerschlucht

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    Since the last ice age, the water of Gornervispe washes the narrow gorge further and further. The river is surrounded by steep walls of 220 million years old greenish serpentinite. This natural spectacle can be crossed on a secured path on foot. From mid-September, the special light conditions between 15 and 16 o'clock make the water turquoise blue.

    Opening Hours: End of April to mid-October, 9.15am to 5.45pm
    Admission: adults 4.50 CHF, children (up to 16) 2.50 CHF
