With ten glacier waterfalls inside the mountain, which are illuminated and accessible by a tunnel elevator, the Trümmelbach Falls are a unique natural spectacle in Grindelwald, Europe.
Trümmelbach drains the giant glacier walls of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains, transporting up to 20,000 litres per second and 20,200 tonnes of debris annually from its catchment area (24 m2), half of which is covered with snow and ice. They are the only glacier waterfalls in Europe situated inside a mountain that are nonetheless accessible!
The Trümmelbach falls are part of the 72 waterfalls in the Lauerbrunnen Valley, which also includes the impressive Staubbach Falls. A mostly flat hike leads from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, past the waters pouring down vertically, in part from crags that are several hundred meters high.
