This may be one of the most interesting gorges I've ever visited. Twisty, narrow passes, with good explanations along the way. Well worth an afternoon.

River flows through the mountains to create an amazing picturesque effect. The 1.4 km walk is full of waterfalls, narrow pathway and lot of picture perfect spots. Takes about 2hours to cross at leisure and can be done with kids as well.

From the river, which is completely green / grey, to the waterfall, to the extraordinary mountains surrounding the walkway... this place was utterly spectacular.

Before reaching Meiringen the river Aare travels though a stunning, deep, progressively narrowing gorge. Fixed to the vertical rock walls of the gorge is a metal and wooden walkway that goes the length of the gorge which is about 1.5km. At the western end of...More

If you get here early before the tourists arrive you can quietly enjoy the beautiful rock faces and sound of the water. It gets very busy and queues of people can make it quiet unpleasant. There is a cafe where you can have a cup...More

It's not a bridge. It's a natural phenomena. It's not free to visit.
