      Murren to Gimmelwald hike

      October 23, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 48 °F

      Murren and Gimmelwald are both adorable alpine villages. Murren is for sure the more touristy one, while Gimmelwald is more authentic (and I got me some real alpine cheese there, sold by the local farmers). The views on the hike itself between the villages didn't hurt either lol. The cute little wooden hut is where my cheese was pressed and aged.Read more

      In den Talschluss 🌞🏔

      July 5 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

      Der letzte geplante Tag in diesem schönen Tal muss noch einmal voll ausgekostet werden. Start früh halb 7 in Richtung Bahn nach Gimmelwald ( ja ich fahre sie noch einmal). Nach einem kurzen Abstieg, geht es knackig hoch zum Tänzbödli. Welch ein Panorama 🥰 Lauterbrunner Tal, Schilthorn, Breithorn, Jungfrau ......Nach einem Kurzen Abstieg zum Berghotel Oberhornblick, steigen wir noch einmal auf zum Oberhornsee. Eine Pause inmitten einer surrealen Gletscherwelt. Der Abstieg wurd laaaaaang, so lang, das wir in Stechelberg in den Bus steigen 😂 Immerhin 21, 5 km und ca. 1300 hm sind in 10 h geschafft 🥵Read more

      Touritour 2 🫣

      July 3 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

      Leider waren auch heute die Wetteraussichten eher bescheiden. Also ging es nach einem späten Frühstück zu den Trümmeler Wasserfällen. 10 im Berg versteckte Kaskaden, Wahnsinn. Danach kam der angekündigte Regen. Die Jungs haben sich ihre MTB geschnappt und ich die Laufschuhe geschnürt. Und es ging etwas on den Talschluss. Ab morgen ist das Wetter stabil ( sagt man hier so 🤭🥴🫣)Read more

    • Day 12

      Ins Tal an den Thuner See 🚴‍♀️

      July 2 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

      Die Wolken hängen noch immer tief, jedoch zeigte sich am Morgen dennoch das Breithorn kurz und lässt die Wucht der Berge erahnen. Mit den Rädern auf dem Auto geht es ins Tal für eine Tour um den Thuner See ab Interlaken. Vorbei an den Beathushöllen, auf einer roll ausgebauten Küstenstraße. Ein bisschen Meerfeeling 😁☀️🏊‍♂️ Leider endete die Tour abrupt, da das Handy weg war. Nach ergebnisloser Suche am letzten Ort, ging es betrübt zurück nach Interlaken. Doch gsd gab es einen ehrlichen Finder 🥰 Tausend Dank. Zurück nach Lauterbrunnen sind wir nach Grindelwald abgebogen. Leider auch hier das Schreckhorn und der Eiger nebelverhangen.Read more

      Trümmelbach Falls

      July 12, 2022 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Taken right from Wikipedia

      Trümmelbach Falls (German: Trümmelbachfälle) [...] are a series of ten glacier-fed waterfalls inside the mountain made accessible by a tunnel-funicular, built 1913, stairs, and illumination.

      To try to add more commentary to that, this waterfall seems to have been formed when water found a soft part of the inside of a mountain. Making most of the falls hidden from human view. Someone drilled a hole out of the mountain to create pedestrian walkways and a series of stairs to observe the falls first hand. It was amazing how we were in 80+ degree weather, then would walk 10 yards inside the caves and suddenly be in refrigerator temperatures. It changed quite quickly.

      It wasn't a small waterfall either, as you can tell from the videos, it was quite powerful.

    • Day 76

      Lauterbrunnen

      October 6, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

      Our travelling day in Switzerland was one of our best travelling days yet. All the trains were amazing and really fancy, and the views from the train window felt like we were on a mountain tour train but we were just on a transport train. We did accidentally sit in first class compartment for about ten minutes until they checked our tickets. We got to Lauterbrunnen and it was amazing. On the bus ride to our accomodation Mum met an old friend called Sally from uni. Our Airbnb was awesome too, the view was super cool and it was one of the biggest Airbnbs yet.

      On our second day we wanted to wake up early to go for a few walks but that didn’t really work out, so instead we woke up at 9 and left around 10:30 to go up a few mountains by train and gondola. Some of the gondolas sat like 30 people and we had them to ourselves. We also looked around a lot of the towns on the hill. We even passed a park which had its own bowling ally which Dad said is very Swiss.

      On our third day we took a cruise on a lake which was very long. We then caught a lift thing that was super steep and took us up to another smaller mountain.

      On our 4th and last day we went up to Grindelwald for a walk to a lake and a cliff walk. We got a gondola to ourselves again too. The mountains were amazing. On the tops of them were snow and old glaciers and all the trees were turning orange because it’s Autumn in October which feels weird. To sum up, the mountains were one of my favourite parts of this whole trip and I will definitely miss them as we go on back to France.

    • Day 7

      Four Finns and a Screaming Child

      September 20, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

      This morning we awoke to a clear blue sky and full sun for what was to be our last full day in Interlaken. Tomorrow we are heading to Montreux for a couple of days before reluctantly saying goodbye to Switzerland and returning home. Sitting at the edge of the lake in the morning sun and waiting for the boat to arrive was a brief respite before a busy day of travelling. Our final destination was Murren, a high alpine village and getting there involved the boat, followed by a bus, a train, a cable car and finally another train.

      The first staging post of the journey was the village of Lauterbrunnen, set in the valley floor beneath rocky cliffs and surrounded by mountain peaks. One of the first sights to greet you on leaving the train is the roaring, 300m-­high Staubbach Falls, the highest freefalling waterfall in Switzerland. After a short walk and countless photographs, we sat at the foot of the falls to eat our packed lunch. I emptied out my water bottle, filled in the hotel toilet, and refilled it from a font that I like to believe was dispensing pure mountain water. After lunch I made the climb alone up into the cliff face and behind the waterfall, Jackie's knee and her nerve not trusted to make it up and back unscathed.

      Murren is a cosy mountain village, which at 1650 meters is the highest continually inhabited settlement in the region. Nestling between the towering peaks of the Schilthorn and the Jungfrau, just across the Lauterbrunnen valley, this car-free village is only accessible by cable car or mountain train (or on foot). High above the village, at the top of the Schilthorn is Piz Gloria, the revolving restaurant featured in the 1969 James Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service ".

      We squeezed into an already full cable car, the last 2 of about 80 passengers and the doors closed. It was about then that the little girl beside us started screaming and grabbing at the door handles. The screaming continued for the full 4 minute ascent and also after we disembarked. Knowing Jackie's love of cable cars, I am sure the child was vocalising what she was feeling inside. The train waiting for our arrival was a small narrow gauge single coach with doors at either end so we hastily headed the opposite end from the still screaming child.

      We secured 2 seats and the train rapidly filled until it was standing room only. At least the densely packed bodies helped deaden the sound of the clearly inconsolable child at the opposite end of the carriage. Standing beside us were 4, middle aged and slightly tipsy Finnish guys. We had as lovely and meaningful a conversation as one can ever have with 4 slightly tipsy Finnish guys on a train at the top of a mountain, so much so that they invited us to join them at the pub. Or to be completely honest, they suggested I go sightseeing and Jackie join them at the pub.

      I can't overstate the sense of awe and wonder we felt wandering around this picture perfect Swiss village surrounded by massive mountain peaks. The Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau look particularly impressive from Murren and we could have sat and gazed at them all afternoon. In fact that is exactly what we did, accompanied by a glass of wine on a wooden deck overhanging the valley below.
