Experience closeness to the impact zone on super hot day, after a walk from Lauterbrunnen, when the sky is stunningly blue and arrive along the path behind the cable car that goes up to Schilthorn to the signboard announcing these stunning Mürrenbachfalls. They spread down like a bridal veil and sound urgent.
These Mürrenbachfalls empty into the Weisse Luechine river that also gathers water from the Staubbachfall as it rushes along to Interlaken.
Wikipedia says "According to studies from the year 2009 the Mürrenbachfall with a fall height of 417 meters is considered the highest waterfall in Switzerland. In this case, the Mürrenbachfall, which had previously been regarded as a cascade, was redefined by geographers into a single case, since they could not find any horizontal planes typical of cascades in the case."
If you have time before catching the Schilthorn cable car up to Gimmelwald, Muerren, Birg and Schilthorn, go closer to this magnificent water monument.
It is possible to climb up the grassy slope to the right behind the track and be lured by these giant falls. Coming within about 30 meters to the impact zone one can feel the exhilaration of the spray mist. Experience the roaring in the ears from these waters pounding their destination after such a long fall. Why not Picnic under the shade of a tree facing the falls and also enjoy the view to the opposite side of the valley to see the impressive Mattenbach falls that are 840m high and almost unknown.
