    Schynige Platte

    August 20 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Ich machte mich mit Wanderschuhen & Tagesrucksack auf den Weg zur "Schynige Platte". Alleine durch die Bergwelt zu Wandern ist ein spezielles Gefühl, ich brauchte etwas Zeit um mich damit anzufreunden.

    Das Bergpanorama war atemberaubend und die Reise auf jeden Fall wert.

    Schynige Platte

    July 25, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Back down the funicular, and straight onto another train to Lauterbrunnen. A short distance from Interlaken I get off at Wilderswil, where I get on the old cog train up to Schynige Platte. A very slow train, but great views.

    At the top it's pretty cool temperatures but dry. So I do a quick circular walk up the mountain a bit, for even better views of the split valleys below to Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald. The cloud doesn't quite clear to show the iconic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. But I can see snow on the base of these peaks.

    Swiss Alps

    July 3, 2016 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    On our drive to our campsite in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland, we stopped in Lucerne (my favourite milk company in Canada!). A visited The Lion Monument, which is dedicated to the thousands of Swiss mercenaries that were killed during the French Revolution, and a famous wooden bridge, although I don't recall why it was so famous...

    Our campsite was nestled in a valley at the foot of some of the Swiss Alps... Wow, what a sight to wake up to! We took the train to the highest train station in Europe to the peak of Jungfrau Mountain - The Top of Europe Station is 3,454 metres (11,333 feet for the Imperial crowd) high! The actual peak of the mountain is 4,158 metres (13,642 feet) high.

    The views are amazing and we spent the day exploring the various viewpoints and the Ice Palace, as well as a few snow sport activities (tubing and some sort of odd seated skiing). Great times!

    As the afternoon went on, I started to get a headache, seemingly from the altitude and ended up getting quite sick that night. Back to 100% the next morning though!
