Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Bern / Bernese Oberland / Meiringen / Reichenbach Falls
Best known as the site of Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty's final clash, Reichenbach Falls attracts fans of the Sherlock fiction series from all over the world. However, with a combined drop of 250 m (820 ft) and picturesque alpine setting, this spectacular series of waterfalls has a broad appeal. A scenic funicular ride makes the site easy to access, located just a short walk from the Reichenbachfall station. At their fullest, the waterfalls can produce a considerable spray, so be sure to wear shoes with good grip and bring a waterproof jacket. Plan my trip to Meiringen with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
Reichenbach Falls Reviews
Well worth the price of the funicular and then the hike. This is a stunning waterfall and with the extra Conan Doyle angle. more »
Beautiful views and great nature surroundings.. buy a combi ticket together with the Aareschlucht, it safes you money! Great to do and no need a lot of time for the visits (ca. 3 hours for the both) more »
Excellent experience. A bit of a walk from the nearby town and, perhaps could have been better signed. Enjoyed the track railway up, the walk over the top among the trees, the power of the falls themselves, the magnificent views and the intertwined link with Sherlock Holmes ' final'? fight with his arch opponent Moriarty make it a must if you are in the area and looking for a day out. Plenty of cafes in the town as well as a Sherlock Holmes museum and related statues.
Beautiful scenery. Also the walking path to the top is really great.
