    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 😊!

    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

    Mürrenbachfall

    June 26 in Switzerland

    Heute sind wir zu einem Wasserfall gefahren. Hier in der Gegend gibt es unendlich viele davon. Wir haben uns für Lauterbrunnen und den Mürrenbachfall entschieden. Dieser stürzt 430 Meter in die Tiefe.
    Am Nachmittag haben wir uns ein SUP ausgeliehen. Stand Up paddeln stand auf dem Programm.

    Murren and Schilthorn

    September 20, 2017 in Switzerland

    Made weather decision to move on to Murren instead of trying the Jungfraujoch and Eiger.
    Really nice hotel in Murren with great views.
    Did the big Schilthornift from Murren
    Spent 3 hrs on top waiting for clouds to clear, and they did!
    Rotating restaurant and long lunch made the wait easy.

    Schilthorn

    June 3 in Switzerland

    Were up at our usual ridiculous hour and on the first cable car up to the Schilthorn, which was made famous from the filming of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Graham was suitably attired in his shiny new hiking boots he bought after yesterday’s debacle in the snow in his RM Williams. I think the view from Schiltorn was even better than Jungfraujoch as there were mountains on all sides as far as the eye could see. We could even see Mont Blanc, which is 750 kilometres away.
    From there we went into the 007 Museum which was incredibly well done. Such interesting stories about the filming and people working on the movie. They were filming for six months and all stayed in Murren (where we are staying) so it must have been humming. Even the toilets were in the 007 theme. Above the men’s urinals was a sign – Shake, not stir.
    And the best thing was – it was all free on our Swiss Travel Pass. A cheap day in Switzerland – never!
    Stopped in Berg on the way back down for Graham to do the thrill walk suspended off the side of the mountain. I had the thrill of eating a doughnut.

    Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

    June 2 in Switzerland

    This morning we woke up at a sparrow's fart to travel to Jungfraujoch - The Top of Europe. It's at an altitude of 3,400 metres, and today was a lovely warm 0.8 c. Getting there early was fabulous as the sky was clear of cloud cover and we pretty much had the place to ourselves, apart from the obligatory Chinese tour groups. It's a pretty incredible view from up there and there were quite a few viewpoints, an ice gallery and best of all, the world's highest chocolate shop!
    RM Williams boots are very versatile - you can wear them to the office then out for a drink and off to a restaurant. The one place they can't take you is the snow. So Graham slid his way up and slid his was down the viewpoint. When he went ass up I did what any good wife would do and cracked up laughing. The second time he went ass up I took the camera from him as I don't want a broken camera.
    From there we trained it back to Wengen and then hiked down the mountain to Lauterbrunnen.
    When people say Switzerland is expensive they should say it is very, VERY expensive. But hiking is free (remember, we are hikers now), and there is free water and toilets everywhere. What more could you ask for? Our first night we had sausage, onion gravy and potato rosti and it was $32 each. We now go to the co-op and buy local cheese and meats, salad and Swiss chocolate and eat like kings on our balcony. There is no fridge in our room so Graham fills the bathroom sink with cold water and next thing, cold wine. Top it off with the best restaurant view in the world.

    Murren Day 2

    June 1 in Switzerland

    Today we went hiking again, because we are hikers now. We caught the cogwheel train and cable car hire down to Lauterbrunnen Valley, where there are 72 waterfalls, and then hiked (walked for those in Australia) to Trummelbach Falls. The hike (walk) was so lovely as it is very rural here. Heaven.
    Trummelbach Falls are in the interior of the mountain and move up to 20,000 litres per second, so it is incredibly noisy in there and pretty impressive. We then hiked (walked) further up the valley to catch a different cable car up and shared it with some of the pilots from earlier in the day who were heading up the mountain again to go base jumping. These guys are crazy stupid.
    Graham is really struggling with the local place names. Youngwhat is actually Jungfraujoch; Stockguard is really Schilthorn; Interlarkenfarken in Interlarken and my favourite - Googlebutton for Lautterbrunnen. Sadly, he is dead serious and when he starts talking to the locals I have to cut him off so he doesn't look like a complete fool. I have a new game where I ask where we are going just to hear what he comes up with but I think he's on to me now.

    Cotton Adventure Tours

    June 3 in Switzerland

    We decided we would do a gentle hike from Murren to the cable car and from there ride down to Lauterbrunnen Valley. So off we headed beside the railway track, all very civilised. We stopped for lunch on the way and sat with retired sisters from Florida who have done more travelling than we’ve had hot dinners. Age has slowed them down but they were a hoot. We left them to continue on our hike while they went off to find a pub. All of the hiking and mountain bike trails are very well marked and it would be impossible to get lost.
    We walked on for a while and realised we had lost the train track and in fact, isn’t that the cable car above us? There was nothing to do but to continue on down, dodging the occasional mountain biker who would come hurtling past. The Swiss must all be extreme sport junkies. They are either throwing themselves off a mountain or whizzing down it on skis or on a mountain bike at break neck speeds.
    So we walked, and walked, and walked. After a few hours we finally came across a sign showing Lauterbrunnen 30 minutes on the nice road or 20 minutes down this little track. We didn’t even debate – we are taking the shorter route. Someone must have decided that the hikers would probably be bored by now so let’s make the last 20 minutes really exhilarating for them. The track looked like nobody walked it and after picking our way down I know why. Four and a half hours after heading off we got to the bottom and Graham found a waterfall to dunk his head under and I found a bar.
