Create an itinerary including Reichenbach Waterfall
Best known as the site of Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty's final clash, Reichenbach Waterfall 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.

  • Great funicular railway and some good treks up top. Make sure you go to the left hand side of the falls to the ledge where Sherlock and Moriarty fall.

  • Beautiful fall, but not as I had imagined it, because of the movie Sherlock Holmes, which made it look way more impressive. But there's a nice little walk you can do around the fall and you can take the train up and/or down if you don't feel like walking
  • The falls are great, with a nice ride up the mt with funicular. Also worth continuing up for a couple of more views on the waterfall.
