Beautiful, refreshing and picturesque! We bought the combo ticket for both the gorge and the falls for CHF 16. It's a little confusing because they are not to be explored continuously. Once you visit the gorge, you need to take your car for a 5...More

Lovely way to spend a hot afternoon. Very impressive slot canyon. Great walk and fairly easy for those that may not be into a long hike.

You can take an easy 40 minute walk through the gorge, with the river beside and below you, by the means of a wooden walkway, anchored to the walls of the gorge by steel beams. Amazingly, this walkway was first built over 100 years ago.Some...More

Low prices, very interesting place with some amazing views. You have to go down and then go back the same way if you leave the car in top car park.

We went on a day with many showers, but it was still spectacular with the water flowing rapidly through the gorge. There is a lot of water dripping from the walls.
