In the course of thousands of years, the Aare has eroded a run through limestone rocks, creating a 1.4 km long and up to 200 m deep gorge. Discover this natural wonder that can be explored in every weather condition.
The Aare gorge is 1-2 meters wide and has been open to the public since 1888.
Switzerland is known as a water castle of Europe. This gorge allows you to safely experience the origins and power of the Aare in this gorge.
