Swiss Hikes: The Stäuber Waterfall, Canton Of Uri

Magic Stäuber waterfall with relaxing music & nature sounds, incredible scenes of Switzerland. A peaceful ambience in the middle of the nature. Stäuber (also called Stäuben or Stäubifall) is a very powerful waterfall near Unterschächen (Klausenpass) in the region Uri, Switzerland. Stäuber is one of the bigger, more powerful waterfalls in Switzerland, especially early in the season.

Stäuber is located along road from Altdorf to Unterschächen and further to the Klausenpass. Near Aesch you already see the Stäuber in the distance, from the roadside. There are several viewpoints along the road where you have tremendous views (from a distance) on the 100 meter single drop waterfall, Stäuber. Early in the season the waterfall can get very powerful, so impressive to see. A must see when you are driving in the Uri Canton.

Driving over the Klausenpass is certainly a great experience! The Stäuber is mostly fed with melted snow and ice from the glacier Hüfi (Hüfifirn), a 7 kilometer long glacier. There is another waterfall east of the Klausenpass called Berglistüber wasserfall. A waterfall where you can walk behind and is mentioned as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Switzerland.

Lake Views: Sisikon In Central Switzerland (4K)

Sisikon, Switzerland, the gateway to Canton Uri, lies on the delta of the Riemenstalderbach stream on the eastern shore of the Urnersee, the southernmost arm of the Vierwaldstättersee. The village is dominated by characteristic pre-Alpine peaks: the Fronalpstock to the northeast and the Kaiserstock chain to the southwest, from there you can see incredible scenes of Switzerland.

The view to the opposite shore opens out to the glacier pyramids of the Urirotstock. Sisikon’s mild lakeside climate means that even figs and kiwis can grow here. Sisikon has several history-steeped spots: on the lake shore three kilometres south of the village is the Tell Chapel. At the place where William Tell is reputed to have saved himself by leaping from the boat of Gessler, the provincial governor.

The chapel, which is adorned with four frescoes by Basel artist Ernst Stückelberg, was built in 1879/80. Switzerland’s largest glockenspiel, which plays a melody every hour, has been located above the Tell Chapel since 2001. The Tell Chapel can be reached on foot or by boat. A short aerial cableway runs from the Tellsplatte up to the Axen.

Swiss Villages: Foroglio – Waterfall In Ticino (4K)

FOROGLIO in Ticino is probably mostly known for the waterfall of the same name. The waterfall can be seen from all over the village. It is possible to reach, or at least get closer to, the waterfall from two sides, an easy path close to the foot of the fall and a more challenging hike from the opposite end of the village. The reward for the challenging route is a fantastic view over the valley and directly to the side of the waterfall. At a height of more than 100 meters, it splashes down the rocks causing a cooling mist of water. The stream from the Calnegia river then ends up in the Bavona river.

The village Foroglio, like most of the small villages in the Bavona Valley is without electricity, but it is still possible to have a delicious lunch in the Osteria Froda. The stone house village is very picturesque and complete tranquil, except at the most touristic periods.
