The Bernese Oberland resort of Meiringen is rich in tradition and lies to the south-east of Lake Brienz, in the beautiful Haslital Valley.
Nestled between the Brünig, Grosse Scheidegg and Grimsel Passes, the village is characterized by its family-friendly label, the diversity of its sports and leisure activities, but also its attachment to traditions and culture.
Meiringen also has a close association with Sherlock Holmes; the town even has a museum dedicated to the famous fictional detective. Arthur Conan Doyle chose the impressive Reichenbach Falls as the setting for the final battle between Sherlock Holmes and his arch enemy, Professor Moriaty. A traditional funicular railway will take you to the observation platform at the falls - an experience you don't want to miss!
Let yourself be carried away by the magic of Meiringen!
