Trummelbach

The Trummelbach Falls (In German: Trümmelbachfälle) in Switzerland are a series of ten glacier-waterfalls inside the mountain made accessible by tunnel-lift and illuminated.

The Trummelbach alone drains the mighty glacier defiles of Eiger (3970 m), Mönch (4099 m) and Jungfrau (4158 m) and carries 20,200 tons of boulder detritus per year.

Its drainage area is 24 km², half of it covered by snow and glaciers. Up to 20,000 liters of water per second. The only glacier-waterfalls in Europe inside the mountain and still accessible.

The Trummelbach Falls belong to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Jungfrau-Aletsch Protected Area and is listed in the Federal Inventory of Landscapes and Natural Monuments of National Importance of Switzerland.

Unbelievably organic inner waterfall. A little bit slippery stairs but so worth the 11 CHF. The best experience I've had in Switzerland so far.

Do not miss this. A series of ten waterfalls carve through the canyon wall. You witness them thundering through the rock via a series of tunnels and platforms.

11 CHF for Adults to walk up, in and around a powerful waterfall. You can choose just how wet you want to get as some viewing areas get you a bit closer to the action.
