Reichenbach Funicular

    The thundering waters of the Reichenbach Waterfall showed the way for the engineers as they lay the tracks for the funicular in 1899. The ride up in the nostalic wooden wagon, which is an exact replica of the original wagon, will take you up to the base of this impressive 120m high waterfall. Wonderful views of the waterfall and the Hasli valley await you from the viewing platform. From here you can also see the place where Sherlock Holmes and his arch enemy Moriarty did battle which ended with both falling to their deaths.
