It’s Sunday which means it’s Switzerland.

We left last week in Murren – the stunning Swiss Mountain Village. It’s time to head down into the valley and towards Lauterbrunnen. You only have three options. Train, cableway or walk it. The easy option is easy. 42 trains a day running to legendary Swiss punctuality. The walk is 5.8km and takes just under 3 hours. But it’s all downhill.

It takes you through alpine Forests with frequent stunning views of the Eiger, Moench and the Jungfrau. You cross multiple streams and are never too far away from the towering waterfalls.

Lauterbrunnen is the home to the Stabbauch Falls which is Europe’s highest free falling waterfall. A drop of 297 metres. If you like waterfalls you need to pay this place a visit. I remember being told that you can visit over 70 of them here.

Next week I think it’s time for a bit of Bond and Blofeld.

      1. He is! He got back yesterday and I finally got back to posting about it. Overall, I think he had a really good time. He is very tired which is causing a little bit of low tolerance for every day stress, but I have heard a lot of positive things from him, which is what I am focused on 🙂

  1. Always a highlight of my week! Such magnificent scenery and so many places you can enjoy it from while sipping hot chocolate or nibbling on Swiss choc no doubt! 🙂

    I’ve been enjoying the scenes of the French Alps and Pyrenees while following the Tour de France live on TV recently – your photo’s surpass them!

    Like the rider’s on la Tour I’m sure these mountain images bring mixed feelings for you both, but it’s good you can focus more on the positives in this post!

    I may never get to Lauterbrunnen, but this is the next best thing!

    Thank you kindly, Sir.

      1. If you get the right pass it covers trains, buses and boats with reductions on some of the mountain cable cars/private mountain trains. We used to arrive in either Geneva, Zurich or Basel but be based entirely in another region. We would prebook a pass for that region and get return tickets to that one city.
