1.4 kilometers long, 200 meters deep
A mystical experience!
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.

The tatzelwurm found an idyllic place for its portrait. A place where the «young river Aare» rushes through grottos, hollows and down steep rockfaces. The Aare Gorge.
