The Holchen waterfall is an approx. 6 meter high waterfall in a side valley of the Renchtal, directly on the premium hiking trail Himmelssteig.
At the Holchen waterfall, the water flows down over two larger steps. At the foot of the waterfall the water has carved out a small cauldron. There is a very hard granite rock near the Holchen waterfall.
