Doldenhornfall

(Fründefall I, Fründefall II,)

The Doldenhornfall, also called Fründefall, is one of the many waterfalls at the shores of the Oeschinensee near Kandersteg in the region Berner Oberland, Switzerland.

The Oeschinensee is a very popular destination by tourists and a nice are to make short or long hikes. Near the camping site in Kandersteg a cable car is going up to the Oeschinensee and Doldenhornfall. When walking along the south shore of the Oeschinensee you can see the Doldenhornfall at the right side of the lake.

The Doldenhornfall is falling down from the mountain Doldenhorn (3.638 m) and is fed with melted ice and snow from a small glacier. The waterfall isn’t extremely powerful but nice to see with all that astonishing beauty of nature.

There are so many waterfalls in the Kandersteg and Kiental region that you can visit but my absolute favorite lies in the neighbor valley near Adelboden, the Engstligenfall with a total height of 415 meter.

If you want to see more great waterfall you can drive further to Lenk. There are several other great waterfalls near Lenk but the most famous one is the Simmenfälle. From here you can walk to several other great waterfalls but Siebenbrunnen is a gorgeous karstic waterfall.
