Pocket Guide: Meiringen

Meiringen, a village in the Swiss Alps, has fame beyond its size as both the rumoured birthplace of meringue and where fictional Sherlock Holmes met his demise over the most spectacular waterfalls in the Alps, the Reichenbach Falls. Today, fans of Sherlock Holmes visit Meiringen to visit Reichenbach Falls, take selfies at the Sherlock Holmes statue and spend time inspecting the reconstruction of 221b Baker Street’s living room at the Holmes Museum near the railway station.

Family-Friendly Accommodation

While Holmes features in some of Meiringen’s accommodation, you also have a good choice of three-star hotels and apartments in the village. If you’re looking for a more pampering-driven getaway, use Expedia’s search tools to search for mid-range spa hotels in Kerns, five miles away, and the much larger resort of Grindelwald, ten miles away, where you can find four- and five-star spa hotels.

Sherlock Holmes and Reichenbach Falls

Plunging around 820 feet, Reichenbach Falls are less than a mile from Meiringen, making for a pleasant walk, but you can also take the bus or train if you have a heavy picnic with you. The Reichenbach Funicular railway will take you to where Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty fought to their deaths in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s last Holmes story, The Final Problem.

The Birthplace of Meringues

Whether or not meringues were invented in Meiringen in the 18th Century is fairly academic because now there are few places better in Switzerland to enjoy the much-loved meringue. Many of Meiringen's restaurants serve it, but you should also give the Bernese favourites of hazelnut gingerbreads and smoked pork a try.

Skiing in Meiringen

Meiringen is well suited to family skiing holidays thanks to its excellent ski lifts and 37 miles of pistes when joined with sister mountain Hasliberg. The majority of Meiringen’s ski runs are ideal for intermediate skiers, but beginners have 12 miles of blue runs to practice on, too. With very few black runs, you and your children can ski or snowboard safely and with confidence.

For family-friendly accommodation, recreation, leisure attractions and delicious meringues, Meiringen is an ideal base for any trip to the Bernese Alps.
