    Only a few minutes away from the Postbus stop in Unterwasser on a flat path. Nice gorge. On the way barbecue area on the banks of the Säntisthur.

    Sure, it's not the Niagara Falls, but definitely worth a visit.
    If you want to have it very cozy, the Thurfalls can be reached on a 10-minute walk from Unterwasser and if you want something more from the beautiful area, there are many options to hang out on or the falls as a highlight at the end of one Visit hike. For example, we started from Wildhaus.

    Small gorge with several waterfalls. Worth to visit when going around

    During our visit today in mid-November, the waterfalls were 100% without water, everything completely dried out ... but somehow it was especially beautiful.

    Beautiful waterfall. However, there is little water. Better go there in spring.

    A beautiful natural spectacle. Best after rain or in early summer when there is a lot of meltwater coming down from the mountains.

    Great at any time of the year .... I've been able to experience it with normal water levels or even after a lot of rain even completely waterless and iced over

    Great little canyon. The way through the rock is awesome. The upper plateau is amazing

    The Thur Falls are located near Unterwasser SG in the municipality of Wildhaus-Alt St. Johann in the canton of St. Gallen in Switzerland.The upper level is called the Oberer Thurfall (Swiss waterfall number 16.1), the lower one the Unterer Thurfall (Swiss waterfall number 16.2). The total drop is 23 meters, of which 13 meters are the upper Thurfall and 10 meters are the lower Thurfall. The average flow rate is 830 l/s. The catchment area of the Säntisthur is 19.5 km2 at the waterfalls. After a long period of drought, the Thur Falls can dry up, especially in summer. The Säntisthur flows below the waterfalls through the Chämmerlitobel. Source Wikipedia
