Oetz Valley. Stuibenfall waterfall

The most famous attraction of the Oetz Valley, with the exception of Ötzi, was popular long before he was discovered. It is Stuibenfall waterfall.

Stuibenfall – a popular name for waterfalls, from the word “to dust”. But the waterfall at Umhausen is the most famous with this name and the highest in Tyrol. However, the height in the waterfalls is not the main thing, but by this one everything is fine also with the appearance.

Bad Urach Waterfall

Bad Urach – is a small spa town near the outlet town Metzingen. Suitable for day trips from Stuttgart (train) or in conjunction with something else. In the city itself there is an old center, a small palace, a thermal pool. There is a ruine of fortress on the hill. But most of people walk to the waterfall.

There are quite high hills around, limestone, eaten away by holes. With the stream, 5 kg of lime and God knows what else is carried out per day. So you shouldn’t drink the water, despite all its transparent stream appeal.

The Bad Urach waterfall is the third highest of those German ones that are outside the Alps (the first two are in the Black Forest), only 87 m.

Jungfrau region. 6. Aare gorge and Reichenbach falls

After all the previous valleys, the Meiringen Valley surprised me with how flat and wide it is. People come here for the Aare Gorge and Reichenbach Falls. The town seemed boring.

Jungfrau region. 5. Lake Brienz attractions. Giessbach falls

Lake Brienz, surrounded by mountains, is like an oval bowl with turquoise milk water on the bottom. The water owes its milky color to the Aare, which flows into the lake between Brienz and Giessbach.

Despite the beautiful color of the water, a Lake Brienz cruise seemed boring to me. Apparently because of always the same banks. It was more pleasant to take the Interlaken – Meiringen train with huge panorama windows than to “hang around” for a long time on a ship between the banks.

Rhine Falls

Rheinfall

The Rhine Falls is an absolutely stunning sight, mainly with the amount of raging water rushing right on you.

It is highly recommended to visit it at unpopular times – early in the morning, in bad weather, etc. You understand, the sight is stunning, the observation platforms are small, the stairs are narrow and slippery, and then there are groups with cameras in a crowd… The first time we were at the waterfall in the pouring rain. But still we had to wait five minutes to take a picture.
