Gimmelwald Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 109 photos
This tiny town, perched high in the alps, is a photographer's (and hiker's) paradise. Traditionally a farming village, Gimmelwald's 130 residents eked out a living raising cattle. With the advent of tourism, the town has blossomed into its full potential, with a renewed energy fueled by a stream of backpackers and nature-lovers. Gimmelwald's main attractions are its scenic views and the surrounding wealth of beautiful walking trails, which pass over cascading waterfalls and through peaceful meadows. An exploration of the town along its only road is also a great way to spend a sunny afternoon.
- Pros:Beautiful views of the alps, mountain trails, picturesque setting...
- Cons:You won't be the only visitor...
Many of the valley's waterfalls feed into this magnificent river, which carries millions of gallons of ice-cold water... more travel advice
This sixty minute hike can be a bit steep for some, but it crosses some of the most beautiful territory in the valley.... more travel advice
