We started out in Amden and walked down to the Lehnirank and there followed the marked path to Hinterbetlis and Vorderbetlis (T2/T1). In Betlis you can already see and hear the Seerenbach waterfall, which has an altitude difference of about 600m and therefore is one of the highest waterfalls in Europe. It is quite impressive to watch.

I think the best view is actually not from one of the two "platforms", but if you keep following path traces from the upper "platform" towards the waterfall and actually even all the way down to the river (T3), because there you really feel the power of the water coming down. The other attraction is the so-called Rinquelle next to the waterfall, where most of the melting snow from the Churfirsten shoots out, after it ran through an underground river system.

On our way to the boat station in Betlis, we also visited the ruins of the Roman watchtower at Stralegg.

This is an ideal, scenic and easy hike for kids and of course also people who don't like strenuous hiking. This time of the year is probably the best time to visit the Seerenbach waterfalls, because of plenty of melting snow!
