Aare gorge

Over thousands of years the Aare river has carved its way between the villages of Meiringen und Innertkirchen, forming a 1,4 km long and 200 m deep gorge.

Take a walk through the Aare Gorge and you will feel the force of nature like nowhere else! Below you, the ice-cold glacier water of the Aare river forces its way relentlessly through the narrow gorge. Above you the sheer cliff faces rise up into the sky. A mystical experience!
