Laubbachfall

The Laubbachfall is the third highest waterfall in Switzerland and is located Oberried (Lenk) in the region Berner Oberland.

The Laubbachfall is easy to reach. From Zweisimmen drive to Lenk and further to Oberried, the end of the valley. Park the car somewhere near the restaurant (the big parking is only for customers). From here it is a few minute walk to the base of the Simmenfälle. From here walk up to the upper part and the Barbarabrücke. Here you already can see the Laubbachfall dropping down over 540 meter.

The Laubbachfall seems to have 3 major stages and should be a view hundred meters high. Surveying the map it seems to be 540 meter, if you count in all three stages. This makes the Laubbachfall the third highest waterfall in Switzerland.

If you walk further on the trail you pass two other great waterfall, a karstic waterfall called Siebenbrunnen and a glacier waterfall  Flueseelifall.

Lenk is a nice region with several other waterfalls nearby like the enormous Iffigfall (Iffigbach wasserfall) with a single drop of 70 meter. Lenk is also a very cosy village with a nice atmosphere, a good place to stay.
