Reichenbach Falls MeiringenLocation : Meiringen

How to reach Main road Meiringen - Willingen

The Reichenbach Falls are a series of waterfalls of river Aar near Meiringen in Bern canton in Central Switzerland. The height of these waterfalls is 250 ft. The falls are made accessible by Funicular Railway. The town and the falls are known worldwide as the setting for an event which never actually happened. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's was so impressed by the serene beauty of this waterfall that he decided to let his world –famous detective, Sherlock Holmes falls to his death at Reichenbach falls after a fight with his arch enemy Prof. Moriarty. A cable railway brings visitors up to the platform where the final duel of the novel took place and, at the same time, to a starting point of unique walking tours through the Reichenbachtal Valley - Grosse Scheidegg - Grindelwald. Every year on May 4, members of the international Sherlock Holmes Society make a pilgrimage to the falls to commemorate the “death” of their beloved hero. Sherlock Holmes museum in the nearby town of Meiringen is also a major attraction among tourists. The waterfalls are opened from May to October. Special arrangements of evening excursions are also available on request.
