Thur Waterfalls Unterwasser, Engstligenfalls Switzerland

Swiss Thur Waterfalls Engstligenfalls Switzerland Travel Guide - Tourist Information

Thur Waterfalls -Unterwasser

The walking journey takes 10 minutes from the village square to the Chammerlitobel. The water flows down tremendously from the rock faces leaving you totally enchanted. The Thur Waterfalls are at its best when the snow melts on the mountains that are nearby or after long durations of rainfall.


The Engstigenfall falls from a height of 1640 feet or 500 meters. Usually falls drop about 300 meters but this fall drops six hundred meters. The Engstligenfalls are tiered and drop in two large falls, each two hundred meters and three hundered meters respectively.

The lower falls which drops three hundred meters is the one which is visible to all from the ground and both falls can be viewed only from a tram that climbs above the falls towards the valley. This is a perennially flowing waterfall
