At Choleren gorge you won't only find an impressive waterfall. You will also see numerous watermills and rocks polished by the water flow. An excursion to Choleren gorge can be comfortably combined with a visit to Pochtenkessels - a deep rocky funnel where the Engstligen and Otterebach waters meet.

Author’s recommendation

The «Fountain of Youth» at the end of the Gorge invites you to take a refreshing dip in the rejuvenating waters of the mountain stream
