The two battle each other for mo…nths, Holmesdeducing Moriarty's plans and identifying his cronies and bustingthem one by one. Finally, Moriarty declares war on Holmes.Assassins were searching for Holmes. Holmes and Watson run for it.Finally Moriarty corners Holmes at Reichenbach Falls, and later Dr.Watson discovers signs of a struggle, and a note in Holmes'handwriting. Moriarty wanted to take his revenge personally andfought Holmes on the edge of a precipice. Both men vanishedafterward, but there were no living witnesses to what happened.Holmes is apparently dead. And Moriarty must be too, or he would becrowing about defeating the great Sherlock Holmes. But fans refusedto accept the death of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doylefinally brought back his character in the story "The Empty House".It seems Holmes defeated Moriarty, but faked his death to protectWatson. Assassins would have kept coming until Holmes was reallydead. And Watson would have died to prevent that, of course. So,Holmes adopts another identity pretending to be Sigerson. And thenColonel Sebastian Moran tried to off him for real in "The EmptyHouse". With this last thug dealt with, Holmes moved back in to221B Baker Street and went back to being a "Consulting Detective". He supposedly fell to his death at the Reichenbach Falls inSwitzerland during a fight with his arch-enemy Moriarty. Butbecause the readers complained Conan Doyle had to bring him "backfrom the dead" by pretending that only Moriarty had died and thatHolmes had temporarily disappeared. So how did Holmes "really" die? He didn't. He eventually retired toSussex and became an etymologist specializing in Bees. ------ In 1893 After seeing the magnificent Reichenbach Falls in thenorthern Swiss Alps Conan Doyle decided the place would make aworthy tomb for Sherlock Holmes.

In 1901 Sherlock Holmes reappeared in The Hound of theBaskervilles. However it clear that Holmes was not alive. Thisstory took place before the incident at Reichenbach Falls. LaterHolmes really was brought back to life in 'The Adventure of theEmpty House' published in 1903.
To answer your question, the date generally accepted by scholars as the date that Holmes supposedly plunged into the Reichenbach Falls is: Monday, 4th May 1891. His death o…f old age or some other cause later in his life is not recorded. ------ Sherlock Holmes was not a real person but a character created by writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This fiction hero "died" in the story "The Adventure of the Final Problem" published in 1893 in The Strand Magazine and then in "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" People were so concerned that Conan Doyle had to bring the great detective back. In 1901 Sherlock Holmes reappeared in "The Hound of the Baskervilles". The story supposedly happened before Holmes' "death" at the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland. Holmes returned officially from the dead in the 1903 story "The Empty House", which is the first story in the book "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" Doyle wrote the Sherlock Holmes stories until 1927 though the chronology of Holmes' adventures ends with "His Last Bow", at the beginning of World War I in 1914. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died in 1930.
He originally died at the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland during a fight with his arch-enemy Moriarty. However Conan Doyle had to pretend that Holmes had not actually died a…t all because of the adverse reaction from his readers.
He didn't die - in fact he never even lived! He was a fictional character invented by Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle, the author of the detective novels featuring Holmes. He didn't… die - in fact he never even lived! He was a fictional character invented by Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle, the author of the detective novels featuring Holmes. THE AUTHOR of the Sherlock Holmes book series was Conan Doyle. He died in 1930. According to Wikipedia: '...he killed off Holmes in "The Final Problem", which appeared in print in 1893. After resisting public pressure for eight years, the author wrote The Hound of the Baskervilles , which appeared in 1901, implicitly setting it before Holmes' "death" (some theorise that it actually took place after "The Return" but with Watson planting clues to an earlier date). The public, while pleased with the story, was not satisfied with a posthumous Holmes, and so Conan Doyle resuscitated Holmes two years later. Many have speculated on his motives for bringing Holmes back to life, notably writer-director Nicholas Meyer, who wrote an essay on the subject in the 1970s, but the actual reasons are not known, other than the obvious: Publishers offered to pay generously. For whatever reason, Conan Doyle continued to write Holmes stories for a quarter-century longer. Some writers have come up with alternate explanations for the hiatus. In Meyer's novel The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, the Hiatus is depicted as a secret sabbatical following Holmes' treatment for cocaine addiction at the hands of Sigmund Freud, and presents Holmes making the light-hearted suggestion that Watson write a fictitious account claiming he'd been killed by Moriarty, saying of the public: "They'll never believe you in any case." In his memoirs, Conan Doyle quotes a reader, who judged the later stories inferior to the earlier ones, to the effect that when Holmes went over the Reichenbach Falls, he may not have been killed, but he was never quite the same man after.
Sherlock Holmes has quite a few interests apart from the obvious mystery solving. He plays the violin, he enjoys smoking a pipe (and has a compendious knowledge of different t…ypes of tobacco ash), He likes to perform chemical experiments, he is a keen boxer and fencer, he took up the beekeeping when he retired, and has always had an interest in many topics including the Polyphonic Motets of Lassus, miracle plays, mediaeval pottery, Stradivarius, violins, the Buddhism of Ceylon, and the warships of the future. He kept a collection of agony column clippings and -- what he called -- an index of biographies, about anyone and everyone of note, he must have been a voracious reader to be so well versed in the quotes and languages he used on several occasions.
Once, at Reichenbach Falls, at the hand of professor Moriarty, inthe book, "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes", "The Adventure of theFinal Problem". This upset Conan Doyle's read…ers so much that hebrought Holmes back ten years later, never to die again (at leastbefore Doyle did).

Sherlock Holmes was a skilled violinist and was learned in the Oriental defense art of baritsu, which is actually a fictional martial art but related to judo, I believe. He wa…s interested in chemistry, and frequently dabbled with poisons and acids and anything he needed to fulfill experiments. According to Dr. Watson, he was an excellent singlestick player (one-handed fencing stick), boxer, and swordsman. He also spoke French quite a lot in his sentences, so odds are he was able to speak it fluently. Then there is the obvious interest in crime and sensational happenings.
"The final Problem" was the name of the book in which Sherlock Holmes was written to die, however, readers insisted he be brought back, and to great surprise he was!
It appeared so, but then it was discovered that he wasn't actually dead.

Sherlock Holmes The Final Problem
Well, his hobbies included playing the violin, sword fighting, singlestick and boxing along with a mixture of some martial arts. In later times he became a beekeeper. That was… definitely surprising to me!

In the trailer, it shows a casket being lowered into a grave marked Sherlock Holmes: 18 something something to 1888. So it's safe to assume that he truly does die. But they …could also do with this what Conan Doyle did after The Final Problem.
