A horribly cynical set up to extract every last drop of blood from folks simply wanting to experience a natural wonder. The car park is free for twenty minutes. That is not quite enough time to walk.... more

Very impressive waterfalls! I can highly recommend spending at least half a day here in order to make the round tour during which you will pass all of the waterfalls. The paths can be quite steep during some sections but they are well maintained and easily accessible for all people with basic fitness and proper shoes. We saw families with several children and strollers as well as groups of pensioners which made it all the way to the top and were rewarded with stunning views. That being said, it is important to note that these waterfalls are certainly not a secrets for tourists which is why the paths were quite crowded, yet not overcrowded.
Beautiful waterfalls with stunning views of the alps. Its a steep hike but it’s very worth it. When you reach the top you can hike besides the river through the alps. The only negative is a lot of people. I highly recommend it and it’s the most beautiful waterfall I have ever seen.
