Refreshing hike for hot days 🥵 Reichenbach Falls - Aare Gorge

A beautiful and refreshing hike from the Reichenbach Falls to the Aare Gorge. The Reichenbach Falls are also known in Sherlock Holmes stories "The Last Problem" from 1893 when Sherlock Holmes fought with his nemesis Professor Moriarty and after a fierce battle falls down the waterfall. A memorial plaque commemorates this fictional incident. The Aare Gorge is the second highlight of the hike, where you walk through a 1400 meter long gorge and at the highest point the rocks rise 180 meters into the air. The river Aare flows into the Grimsel Pass and runs through the whole of Switzerland to Bad Zurzach in Schaffhausen.
