Where is this waterfall/river?

I saw this picture in the brochure for excursions of the SBB. It's an advert for Luzern and the Lake of 4 Cantons.

Does anyone by chance know where it is specifically?

Re: Where is this waterfall/river?

I do not know which one this is, but I know where you can find other waterfalls.

Edited to add:
Sherlock Holmes says it is not the Reichenbach Falls, but there is a web address on your scanned page . Check-it out. It could be the Stäubifall Äsch, Unterschächen.

I am deeply impressed and bow my head! People on this Forum never seize to amaze me. I tried to find out last night but had no clue. It definitely looks like a nice place to visit. I will put it on my to-do-list of places to visit in Switzerland. Thanks for that!

Re: Identify this place

It's the shower of the old Alpöhi from Heidi's story. This qualifies as bathroom in old Switzerland.

Re: Identify this place

Klausen Pass.

May have used Google's image search function, but still.



It looks like a beautiful place. I may have to visit it someday.
