Swiss Delight

Cable Car to Murren

Cable Car to Murren

Recently back from our first trip to Switzerland.  We rented an apartment in Lauterbrunnen, a town located in a large valley between two mountain ranges in more or less the center of the country.  Took day trips from there via rail to Bern and Brienz/Ballenberg, with a day trip to Gruyeres via rented car.  Cable cars, cogwheel trains and plain old hiking got us to nearby towns in the mountains (Murren and Wengen) and inside a couple waterfalls (Trummelbach and Staubbach Falls).  A relentlessly picturesque panorama wherever we went.  Really spectacular.  Ate our weight in Rosti, fondue and chocolate.  Especially chocolate.
