Seerenbach Falls, CH

The Seerenbach Falls (German: Seerenbachfälle) are a cascading set of three waterfalls near Betlis of the Amden municipality near the Walensee, Switzerland. The upper cascade has a height of 50 m, the middle one of 305 m, and the lower one of 190 m, for a total of 585 m.

Impressions

The middle section (Seerenbach Fall II) is the second highest waterfall in Switzerland, after the Mürrenbach Fall (417 m).

The Rinquelle (Rin Spring), a karst spring, joins Seerenbach Fall III in the Seerenbach canyon. Behind the spring is a river cave system that was explored (some 1,400 m of it) between 1953 and 1981. The waterfall of the Rinquelle is 48 m high.

The Rin source is one of Europe’s largest subterranean river systems. Various expeditions with diving equipment have been made to research the Rin cave and have made their way into the inside of the mountain. A tunnel then leads outside functions as an overflow system for the subterranean river system during rainy periods and when the snow melts.

Around 3,000 m from the cave entrance the river branches off and water disappears into the inside of the cave. Where does it go? – That will probably always be a secret.
