10 glacier-waterfalls inside the mountain made accessible by tunnel-lift and illuminated. The Trümmel-creek alone drains the mighty glacier defiles of Eiger (3'970m), Monk (4'099m) and Jungfrau (4'158m) and carries 20'000 tons of boulder detritus per year. Its drainage area is 24 km², half of it covered by snow and glaciers.

Up to 20'000 liters of waters per second. The only glacier-waterfalls in Europe inside the mountain and still accessible.
