Staubbach Falls is a famous waterfall near Lauterbrunnen in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland. The water falls almost 300 meters in free fall into the depth. Thus, the Staubbach Falls is the highest free-falling waterfall in Switzerland. Besides the nearby Trümmelbach Falls, the Staubbach Falls is the most famous waterfall in the waterfall valley of Lauterbrunnen.
The waterfall is in the valley of Lauterbrunnen. Coming from Interlaken, you drive through the village of Lauterbrunnen. The Staubbach Falls is shortly after the village near the road to Stechelberg on the right side.
You can look at the waterfall from below and take pictures all year round. Even more interesting is the walk up to the so-called gallery. On a path you can get behind the water of the waterfall. This is possible only in summer because of the danger of falling rocks.
The Staubbach Falls is a must-see. The valley of Lauterbrunnen is famous for waterfalls. Besides the Staubbach Falls, the Trummelbach Falls, which are not far away, are also very famous and well visited by tourists.
