    September 13, 2017 in Switzerland

    About 30-40 minutes walk (give or take a 100 photos) from Mürren is the quiet village of Gimmelwald. A lovely nature walk with cows, goats, sheep, chickens, vegetable gardens, and mountains all around. Beautiful clean air!
    Population (2016) is 130. We ate at the only restaurant/pub, Pension Gimmelwald, and had a wonderful view and a delicious bowl of vegetable soup with fresh bread. Perfect!
    Farming and tourism are the main source of income today. Farmers raise hay on tiny plots of land to feed small herds of cows.

    Allmendhubel Mürren

    September 14, 2017 in Switzerland

    Not a great day for hiking today but we jumped right in and gave it an shot! Caught the funicular to the Allmendhubel (1,932 m), a hill above Mürren. A restaurant is located near the top as well as a Flower Park for the kids and a Flower Trail (in Summer) leads past 150 different alpine flowers including gentians, alpine roses and edelweiss and some interesting medicinal herbs. However, in September, and in the pouring rain, there is not so much to see. The clear mountain air, and fantastic views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau combined with the 'dampened' tranquillity of the Alps made up for lack of blooms. We then got on with the intended nature hike back down the hill to our home base of Mürren. The paved path wound its way down the hill turning into a grass path and finally into a rocky/dirt/tree roots path but all quite easy to traverse. It was a good hike in mostly light persistent rain. The rain has now set in for the afternoon but is predicted to clear for our cable-car ride to Schilthorn tomorrow morning. Let's hope!Read more

    Mürren Switzerland

    September 13, 2017 in Switzerland

    Mürren is perched on the edge of an 800 m high cliff, rising up from the Lauterbrunnen valley in the Jungfrau region. You can see the Eiger, Mönch, Breithorn, most of the Jungfrau, and many other mountains from here. There are no cars, mountains all around, green slopes and forests and many hiking trails. Oh the serenity 😊!Read more

    Murren- up in the Alps

    September 13, 2017 in Switzerland

    We are now staying for 2 nights up in the Swiss Alps. To reach Murren we travelled first by cablecar then mountain train. Not possible to take the car so we've left it in Lauterbrunnen car park. We then walked to the close by village of Gimmelwald. Neither Murren or Gimmelwald have cars (except for a couple of locals) and are everything you would expect to see in a Swiss Alpine village. Surrounded by snow capped mountains, chilly fresh air, goats & cows ringing their bells and amazing views! to the big 3 peaks- Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau! Snow is forecast for tomorrow! Murren is also where you catch the cable car to Schilthorn- the mountain peak with the restaurant where they filmed James Bond's 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. Maybe some 007 action awaits us at the top of the Schilthorn??Read more

    Trummelbach Falls

    September 12, 2017 in Switzerland

    They are Europe's largest subterranean water falls and are located in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, often called the valley of 72 waterfalls. The Trümmelbach Falls are the world's only glacier waterfalls that are accessible underground by lift, galleries, tunnels, paths and platforms. The Trümmelbach alone drains the mighty glacier defiles of Eiger (3967 m), Mönch (4099 m) and Jungfrau (4158 m) and carries 20,200 tons of boulder detritus per year. It also carries down to the valley - up to 20,000 liters of water per second.
    The falls are a series of ten glacier-waterfalls inside the mountain. Fantastic!

    Trummelbach Falls

    September 12, 2017 in Switzerland

    Today we visited the fantastic Trummelbach Falls near Lauterbrunnen. The Falls are in the Valley of the 72 Falls. They are the world's only glacial falls accessible underground by lift, pathways & tunnels. Incredible! And so is the noise as the water roars through at a flow of 3 cubic metres a second! We took the lift up through the mountain and then walk down. (Many, many, many steps!) Another amazing day in the Swiss Alps.Read more

    Day 0 & 1: Drive to sunlight = Suisse

    October 9, 2017 in Switzerland

    It is time for a well deserved holiday, the rain drove us away, literally ;-) We only had reserved 2 weeks off from work. We had a good plan and nothing booked or fixed so we could do whatever we wanted. We drove off around 3PM on the Monday after packing that same day. We managed to get to Oberkirch in Schwarzwald in Germany, we booked a nice accommodation that was in a managable distance. The holiday was started and we were already feeling healthier and much better than the day before.
    So the next day after a nice German breakfast we tried to walk a nice route in the Schwarzwald, After 15minutes of walking in the fog and when rain started we said that this wasn't what we had in mind. We moved back straight away and did not stop until we had blue skies and a nice scenery. Lauterbrunnen. It is almost like a fairytale, mountains rising up straight from the ground and here and there waterfalls came falling down the edges. We planted our stuff in a hostel like accomodation and moved out to do some exercise and see the area. This ended up in a 17km long hike up and down the whole mountain (well we took the train to skip the boring part). Walking up was the heaviest so we managed to get to the top before 5PM, the sun was still shining but we needed to get back since we expected it to be dark around 7:30PM. The sun however did off course not go down on the horizon it went down behind the highest mountain so after 30minutes it was already cooling off and within the hour it was a whole lot darker. The journey down should have taken us 2,5 hours but we walked slower than planned. Especially when we walked through the woods, it took us a whole hour longer (the sun was gone and it became pitch black on some parts) it was a little to much excitement after the long day but we managed to get to Wengen around 20:45 to find a place that we could finally regain energy with a lovely meal ;-) we took a late train back down to Lauterbrunnen and a wonderfull long day and the story that comes with it :D.
