Intro

Seven springs feed the Simme, a 55km-long river in the Bernese Oberland that flows into Lake Thun at Wimmis. The waterfalls that cascade over rocks several metres high are also well worth a visit.

The Simme River flows through the eponymous valley in the Bernese Oberland from Lenk to Wimmis near Spiez. The Simmen source bubbles from a mighty limestone wall and is composed of the meltwater of the glacier which is located between Wildstrubel and Rohrbachstein. Forming the shape of a 30-meter wide fan, the water gushes out of seven springs from slits in the rocks on the Rezliberg .

Below the Alp, the river forms the 200-meter-high Simmen Falls. The meltwater rapidly flows over and down rocks that are several meters high, gathering a lot of force in the process. A small footpath leads along the water. It is however safer to view the spraying water from the Barbara Bridge.

The Simmen Falls are discovered at a distance of five kilometers behind family-friendly Lenk in the Simmen Valley.
