Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Bern / Bernese Oberland / Grindelwald-Wengen-Murren-Lauterbrunnen / Lauterbrunnen / Staubbach Waterfall
Rumored to have been the inspiration for Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's poem, "Song of the Spirits over the Waters," Staubbach Waterfall stands nearly 300 m (984 ft) tall. The second-highest waterfall in the country, it is known for the spray of water in every direction due to the winds in the area. Walk the path up to the waterfall and go behind it for a view of the entire valley through the falls. Information boards offer the historical and scientific background of the area. Be sure to wear appropriate gear, as mist from the fall spreads far, and watch your step on the slippery paths. Make Staubbach Waterfall a centerpiece of your Lauterbrunnen vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Lauterbrunnen vacation planning website.

Staubbach Waterfall reviews
A great and easy hike/walk up to the waterfall. Definitely a must-see if visiting Lauterbrunnen. Our kids loved being able to go "behind" the waterfall. more »
The falls that dominates the small village are breathtaking. You can walk over to the falls, and climb to a open view under the falls.; It's slippery and a jagged path so wear good hiking shoes. more »
Spectacular waterfall - Nature at its finest. Absolutely breathtaking in real life. I have just returned from a trip to Switzerland and this was one of my many highlights on the train to Jungfraujoch. As you come into Lauterbrunnen station you will catch a glimpse of the waterfall. It's only as you catch the next Jungfrau train that as you climb the incline, you get a tremendous view of the waterfall through the window, the top part which you can wind down as to not get reflection on your photographs. This picturesque place is literally one of those places that makes you gasp in pure amazement on coming into view.
The path to reach the top of falls lacks proper safety measures..other than that it was a thrilling experience
