The Reichenbach Irregulars
The Sherlock Holmes Society of Switzerland

 

Welcome to the Reichenbach Irregulars, the Sherlock Holmes Society of Switzerland

"The Reichenbach Irregulars" is the Sherlock Holmes Society of Switzerland. We are keeping the memory of the Master and his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1959-1930), green over here.

The Reichenbach Irregulars have been founded in Meiringen in 1989 by a group of young Sherlockians lead by Marcus Geisser.

In the 1990s, the Reichenbach Irregulars organised a number of meetings in Switzerland and elsewhere as well conferences with international experts on Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle. In May 1992, the Reichenbach Irregulars - together with the Bimetallic Question of Montréal - erected a commemorative plaque at the Falls of Reichenbach in memory of the fateful encounter between Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty. The Reichenbach Irregulars also published a "Reichenbach Journal" as well as a newsletter (The Young Swiss Messenger).

Like the Master, the Reichenbach Irregulars are now back after a long Hiatus.

NEWS: The programme for our event "Reichenbach and Beyond" which will take place from 31 August to 3 September 2017 is online (see under Events)!

We are pleased to announce that our Italian Sherlockian friends from Uno Studio in Holmes – The Sherlock Holmes Society of Italy have confirmed their gathering & conference in Florence, a week later, from Friday, 8 September to Sunday, 10 September 2017.
