The Rosenlaui Valley, at the foot of the Engelhörner, Dossen, Wellhorn and the Wetterhorn, offers everything one might expect of Switzerland: rich pastures, great old maple trees, age-old stables and mountain huts, rough rocks and sparkling glaciers. To crown it all, there is a glacial gorge, the Rosenlaui Glacier Gorge, which has attracted romantics from near and far for more than a century.

A narrow hiking trail follows the rushing mountain stream step for step. In some areas, the gorge is so narrow that the highly polished cliffs seem to nearly touch, leaving only a sliver of sky. The water swirls around in the potholes and nature has shown itself adept at sculpture: here one seems to see a famous face, there one thinks one is in a cathedral.
The Rosenlaui Glacier Gorge is open daily from the end of May till the end of October: 10 am - 5 pm, June-September 9 am - 6 pm.

How to get there:
Drive or take public transportation to the Rosenlaui Glacier Gorge via Meiringen, which is accessible either from Interlaken or Luzern.
