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.
