The Gorner Gorge is one of the most fascinating natural beauties of Zermatt. It lies around 20 walking minutes from the southern end of the village and is easily accessible.
For centuries, people needed to climb down one treacherous side to climb up the other. In 1893, a wooden bridge was built over this gorge. it is 48 meters long and 100 meters high.
Loud thundering and roaring in the interior of the mountain, gurgling, foaming and churning water: these are the Trümmelbach Falls. They are Europe's largest subterranean water falls and are located in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, often called the valley of 72 waterfalls.
A huge crevice vertically divides the ridge over St-Imier into two parts – the Combe Grède.
