A typical and traditional Swiss Alpine destination for holidays with a big plus
The Bernese Oberland, the Reichenbach Falls and Sherlock Holmes
Meiringen offers a wide range of fascinating activities. In addition to visiting a glacier you can also take a charming funicular that will take you to the famous Reichenbach Falls. A journey during which you will first be able to see small waterfalls, before arriving to the panoramic terrace, where you will be able to admire the view over the 120 meters high waterfalls, as mentioned in one of the Sherlock Holmes novels.
The village also offers you the opportunity to taste a traditional meringue in a little café, that will exceed your expectations, as it is here that this delicious pastry has its origin.
The best of the history of Swiss Alpine tourism comes alive in Meiringen. The village, a charming mix of farms, traditional chalets, and old hotels, offers access to all kinds of authentic mountain activities.
The residence sits in the very centre of the village, across from the ice rink and Sherlock Holmes Museum that recounts one of his most celebrated adventures (The Final Problem, 1891). An aerial tramway gives skiers access to 60 km of pistes at an altitude of 2500 m.
