There were a lot of visitors but plenty of parking spaces. We took the elevator and then hiked down. Great place to take pictures of the valley.

Last year in America I ordered a mushroom pizza. The waitress described it as ‘awsome’. Well, if a mushroom pizza is awesome, I don’t know how she would describe the Trummelbach Falls! It is a natural wonder of ten powerful glacier waterfalls, but uniquely they are all within the mountain rather than cascading outside. A series of galleries and tunnels take you inside the mountain where a number of viewing platforms to allow you to see the thundering falls and gaze at the awesome power. It is quite rightly designated a UNESCO world natural heritage.

The falls are easy to get to from Interlaken (a train to Lauterbrunnen – a regular and frequent service – where the bus awaits timetabled to meet the train). It is only a short 3km bus journey and if you have a half-fare Swiss Rail Card it can also be used on the bus. In late October when we visited the place was fairly quiet, but undoubtedly the better for it. It is only a short stroll from the bus stop to the entrance where a lift takes you to what is essentially the beginning (you can walk down from where the lift takes you, but there are only a couple of viewing points lower down).

It is not easy to negotiate for anyone with mobility difficulties, as there are numerous steps, which can be wet and a bit slippery. There are also some steep drops that might be a bit off-putting for those who don’t like heights. However, don’t let this put you off. I don’t like heights, and there are many places I won’t go, but I did manage to see all of this so it is not too bad (there are substantial safety rails next to any drops, and the path wide enough not to have to walk on the edge, although it was fairly quiet when I went). Also, my wife has mobility difficulties but she made it from the lift up the first lot of steps and then along a level walkway that runs high up beside a thundering river of water to a number of the viewing galleries, before it reaches more stairs. These are the longest set of steps, going to the uppermost chambers, so she returned down from here to wait in a lower viewing gallery while I continued upwards. So those with walking difficulties should not be deterred, as it is not too difficult to see most of it.

Mushroom pizza awesome indeed – this is awesome!

My favorite place in the world...so far. The waterfall is so huge that at times i was scared of the ground underneath me being blown away.

Haven't been inside a mountain before to see waterfalls but it was well worth it. I would like to see this in the spring as it would be incredible to see the force of water at that time. Impressive enough in late autumn.

Routes were well-paved for the walks to all 10 waterfalls inside. They're really majestic! The elevator up to the mid section of Trummelbach was rather interesting, and I appreciate the fact that when we went, the place wasn't too crowded. I like the fact that the place wasn't overwhelmed by souvenir shops like any other tourist spot.
