On a bridge above the main cascade of the Reichebach Falls near Meiringen in the Swiss Alps.

At 90 metres, the Upper Reichenbach Fall is one of the highest cataracts in the Alps. The falls, made accessible by the Reichenbachfall funicular in 1899, are most famous as the location of the final fight of Sherlock Holmes with his arch-enemy Professor Moriarty.

"It is, indeed, a fearful place. The torrent, swollen by the melting snow, plunges into a tremendous abyss, from which the spray rolls up like the smoke from a burning house. The shaft into which the river hurls itself is an immense chasm, lined by glistening coal-black rock, and narrowing into a creaming, boiling pit of incalculable depth, which brims over and shoots the stream onward over its jagged lip. The long sweep of green water roaring forever down, and the thick flickering curtain of spray hissing forever upward, turn a man giddy with their constant whirl and clamour. We stood near the edge peering down at the gleam of the breaking water far below us against the black rocks, and listening to the half-human shout which came booming up with the spray out of the abyss. The path has been cut halfway round the fall to afford a complete view, but it ends abruptly, and the traveller has to return as he came." (Arthur Conan Doyle: The Final Problem from The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, 1893).
