Seerenbach and Rinquelle Falls

The Seerenbach Falls (German: Seerenbachfälle) are a cascading set of three waterfalls near Betlis of the Amden municipality near the Walensee, Switzerland. The upper cascade has a height of 50m, the middle one of 305m, and the lower one of 190m, for a total of 585m.[1]

The middle section (Seerenbach Fall II) is the second highest waterfall in Switzerland, after the Mürrenbach Fall (417m).[2]

Rinquelle[edit]

The Rinquelle (Rin Spring), a karst spring, joins Seerenbach Fall III in the Seerenbach canyon. Behind the spring is a river cave system that was explored between 1953 and 1981.[3] The waterfall of the Rinquelle is 48m high.[3]
