Sherlock Holmes Museum
the English Church in Meiringen, consecrated in 1891 for the use of the
many English visitors. In 1991 it took on a new role, and the lower floor
of the building became the Sherlock Holmes Museum, under the patronage
of The Sherlock Holmes Society of London, and the late Dame Jean Conan
Doyle, daughter of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sir Arthur, the creator
of Sherlock Holmes, the world‘s first Consulting detective, was a frequent
visitor to Switzerland, and in 1893 he visited Meiringen and the Reichenbach
Falls. He had grown tired of writing Sherlock Holmes stories, and in the
story entitled „The Final Problem „ published in December 1893, Sir Arthur
attempted to put an end to his detective. In the story, Holmes together with his
friend and biographer, Dr Watson, left London to escape his arch enemy,
Professor James Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime. Holmes and Watson went
by train to Switzerland, and to Meiringen.
