The beauty of the mighty waterfall - height of drop 100 m - and the scenic charms of the surroundings have been described since tourism began. A Sherlock Holmes commemorative plaque by the cable railway reminds the visitor that Conan Doyle was so deeply impressed by the wild beauty of this waterfall that he decided to let his world-famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, fall to his death in the Reichenbach Falls after a fight with his archenemy Prof.Moriarty.
A cable railway brings visitors up to the platform where the final duel of the novel took place and, at the same time, to a starting point of unique walking tours through the Reichenbachtal Valley - Grosse Scheidegg - Grindelwald.
