ROAD TO LAUTERBRUNNEN
This would have to be one of the prettiest drives ever!Lucky me, I was the Passenger in the Car, although we did pull up several times for photo's! I had to take one of the Swiss Cow's, munching away in the colourful field's in the month of June.And then, all the...
In English, this is a Gorge, and an impressive one at that!It is located about 1km from Meiringen, so you can walk to there from the Town.We drove the 40kms from Lauterbrunnen as we were doing many sight's on the one day. No worries with car parking, there was plenty of...
This is another one of the beautiful Swiss lakes!Located only a short distance from Lauterbrunnen, we decided to do a drive alongside the Lake. Their were a few Yacht's out on the nice Blue, calm and peaceful Lake. Mountain view's were fantastic again!Brienz and Interlaken...
Once I had paid my admission fee, I eagerly headed along the track towards the Gorge. I was given a map which had information on the main attraction's, and there was a signpost at the beginning of the trail.It was an interesting walk, some of it was through a big Cavern...
We saw the Staubbach Falls as we drove into Lauterbrunnen. Wow! They were pretty good!The falls are 297 metres high, and had quite a good flow going over them.They can be seen from Trummelbach Falls and Wengen.We only viewed from a distance, but you can get closer to them by...
The 261 metre high Aegertenbach Falls are situated between Staubbach Falls and Murrenbach Falls and right across from Trummelbach Falls.They are said to be ones with a light flow, but on the day we observed them, there seemed to be plenty of water going over, and plenty of...
TRUMMELBACH FALLS - CHUTES 6-EXIT
We are at Chute 6, and the water is powerful! This is where the Lift dropped us off, so it is downhill from now on. There are some stairs before we reach chutes 4&5! The "Corkscrew Falls" are located below here and we can see daylight and fabulous Mountain scenery. Still...

PIZ GLORIA: Meal with a view!
It was Lunch time and we wanted to wait and see if the fog cleared a bit. What to do, but head into the Gift shop, then the World's highest revolving Restaurant to see what that was like.To be truthful, we thought it would be terribly expensive, after all, it was a revolving...
Silberhorn Hotel: Fine Dining
We had half board during our 4 night stay at the Silberhorn Hotel during September 2010.The main restaurant was excellent with soup and salads included each evening from the buffet. The menu changed each evening with a choice of 2 main courses supplemented with other...
Trummelbach to Lauterbrunnen
From Lauterbrunnen, I walked the couple of miles along the river to the falls at Trummelbach. After walking around the falls (and the many steps involved in this), I opted to take the bus back to Lauterbrunnen.Buses run every hour between Trummelbach and Lauterbrunnen. The...
Interlaken West - Main Train Station
We became very familiar with this train station as our train from Basel stopped here for our connection to Lauterbrunnen which is 20 minutes away.We passed through this station several times on our travels, a day trip to Bern, also to catch our train to Zurich and several...
PIZ GLORIA SOUVENIR SHOP: St. Bernard Dogs & 007
Located in Piz Gloria, is the Souvenir shop.I guess this one is a little different, as "Bond" gear is for sale, and there is all sorts to choose from. Also, if you arrive and are freezing cold, then there are Jacket's and warm clothes you can buy! As you most probably...
When on the viewing platform at Schilthorn, be very careful when you walk if there is Snow on the surface. With people walking on the snow, it had become slushy and slippery, and I found it quite easy to get a wobble up, but didn't fall.As you can see in the photo, there was...
LACK OF OXYGEN
This something you need to be aware of when visiting Schilthorn, or any other Mountain.I am asthmatic, so I made sure I had my "puffer" with me, and that I was ready for the "thin" air.Unfortunately, the Woman infront of us, walked out onto the viewing platform and within a...
Warm Clothing & Gloves Essential on Jungfrau
We visited the Top Of Europe late summer and experienced plenty of fresh snow and cold wind.We walked on the snow for 15 minutes or more, I had a jacket and gloves which gave me good protection for 10 minutes before it was necessary to escape back inside.With proper ski...
Isenfluh is a little Mountain Village on the way to Lauterbrunnen. We decided to head up here for our morning tea. The road was narrow and windy like most of the roads are, at least it was very quiet and we didn't meet another Car. For a small part, we passed through a...
Horse & Carriage Ride - Interlaken
Certainly a tourist thing, I doubt if you would ever see the locals taking a ride. It quickly grabbed our attention as we left the Interlaken train station on returning from our day in Bern.No idea what they charge and I guess waiting time would be short as there were...
Paragliding over the Swiss Alps
We have just returned from one of our most memorable trips ever to the Lauterbrunnen valley - and what a breathtaking valley it is!We tried several activities and can hand on heart recommend Paragliding. We chose the Mürren flight, as there were 3 different flights to choose...
Paragliding & Tandem-flights
In Lauterbrunnen and the surrounding mountains you may easily try out paragliding from Schilthorn or Allmendhubel, Wengen or Birg. You may book a flight in advance or in some cases I even met paragliders, who went up the Schilthorn and waited there for passengers for a...
HEADING UP TO SCHILTHORN
My husband and I are in the Cable Car at last, and heading quite fast up the Mountain side.Now, the view is amazing, mind boggling, beautiful, and any other adjective that describe's tremendous beauty. Be prepared!The Valley views are something I will never forget,...
