    Rheinfall, Northern Switzerland

    September 16, 2017 in Switzerland

    WOW! WOW! !WOW! The falls are amazing! Easy to see, easy to access, hard to forget!
    The falls are located on the High Rhine on the border between the cantons of Schaffhausen and Zürich.
    They are 150 metres wide and 23 metres high. We took a boat to "the rock" in the middle of the falls where we walked to the top to enjoy 360 degree view of the falls and feel the spray on your face. There are also viewing platforms with a spectacular view of the falls built on both sides of the Rhine.Read more

    Interlaken Switzerland

    September 10, 2017 in Switzerland

    Our accommodation is not in Interlaken but in Unterseen which is about 1.7km west of Interlaken. Unterseen seems a popular tourist destination judging by the numbers here today but there are plenty of tourist shops here to amuse them. So many watch stores which is to be expected as the Swiss are known for their watches. I think every second shop is selling watches!
    On a clear day here it is possible to see the mountains Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Today was not one of those clear days but it was warmish and sunny - maybe tomorrow.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!

    Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

    September 12, 2017 in Switzerland

    Today we made a spontaneous decision to do the Jungfrau Railway's "Top of Europe" trip from Grindelwald to Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest-altitude railway station, at 3454 metres above sea level. What a great time we had. The weather could not have been better. A little altitude sickness stopped Rozzie and me for a bit - a sit down with cake and cuppa solved that! I was out of control with the photo-taking - amazing views from the Sphinx observatory terrace (3571m above sea level) and the ice palace was "cool"! We finished the day with a stroll around Grindelwald. A perfect day!Read more

    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

    Schilthorn

    September 15, 2017 in Switzerland

    Waited 3 days for a clear day to take our trip up the Schilthorn and so pleased that we did. Early start with frost, a little light snow and clear skies! 2 chair lift rides to the top and breathtaking view across the Alps and down into the valley. You have a 360deg view from the lookout and the revolving restaurant 'Piz Gloria' at the top. Freezing cold, predicted ti be -6. Piz Gloria was used in the James Bond Movie 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' and 007 features prominently in all things on Schilthorn! By the time we had reached our halfway cable change on the way down, cloud had started to blow out in.Read more

    Rhine Falls

    September 16, 2017 in Switzerland

    This was fantastic! The amount and speed of the water cascading over the falls is huge! We are staying in a wonderful old hotel in Schaffhausen not far from the falls. We walked over the foot bridge to the castle, then took the lift down to the viewing platform. There is a cave entrance to the side of the falls from here. Then took the boat to the small island landing in the centre of the falls where you can climb to another viewing platform. Just an awesome sight!Read more
