This Other Swiss Waterfalls page is what I’m designating as a repository for the various waterfalls we’ve seen around the country where we couldn’t quite figure out the name of said waterfall or that we considered one of those dime-a-dozen varieties.

And you’ll see by the sheer quantity of photographs on this page, there was certainly no shortage of such waterfalls in Switzerland.

Just think of this page as an acknowledgment by us that there are indeed countless waterfalls within Switzerland.

And of those, only a select few get “major” waterfall status by having names and tourism literature devoted to them.

So we’re paying homage those waterfalls that weren’t amongst those few that got the love.

This page includes waterfalls from as far south as Zermatt (known for the Matterhorn; see picture above) as well as Italian-speaking Ticino, all throughout Bernese Oberland, and even out to the eastern reaches of Bernese Oberland.

By the way, if you happen to see a waterfall on this page in which you know its name or you’re familiar with, please feel free to share what you know!

Mondada_005_20130604 - In order to get this close to the waterfall at Mondada, it looked like you had to cross through someone's farm.  It's a shame because this seemed to be a waterfall worth some kind of infrastructure devoted to it

Since this is a general catch-all page, there are no specific directions. It’s more of a page to pay homage to the waterfalls for which I haven’t dedicated a writeup up for one reason or another.

Note the peg I marked on the map below was for the Zermat area since I saw a few over there. The rest of the falls we spotted are well-represented in other waterfall excursions written about.
