Stanserhorn is 1898 m high mountain located in Central Switzerland. It is not only famous for its unique means of transport – i.e. modern open-air “cabrio” cable car and historical funicular, but also for amazing panoramic views.
Few weeks ago, my husband and I visited Bürgenstock, a lovely holiday spot in Central Switzerland located atop of a mountain ridge above the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee)
You might remember I’ve already been there couple of times – last time in December 2017 when I celebrated my birthday at the Alpine spa of the Bürgenstock Resort, but it has been even longer since I hiked to the highest point of the ridge Hammetschwand. Since it has been so long, I’ve noticed things changed a bit. With the luxury resorts open, Bürgenstock became much more accessible by the public transport. Now you can not only take the bus, but also a ship and funicular to get there*. Hence the easier accessibility, the amount of people at Bürgenstock and Hammetschwand increased a bit. Continue reading
A while ago my husband and I went to Stoos, a small car free village in the mountains of Central Switzerland. As you might remember, I’ve already wrote about this trip, but I haven’t show you the video I made. I finally managed to edit it (it took ages, I know) and here it is. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
Have you ever been to Stoos? Would you go?
When our friends come to visit us in August, my husband and I decided to took them to the picturesque village of Mürren and 2,970 m high summit Schithorn in Berner Oberland (Bernese Oberland). With its majestic mountains, charming little villages, and unspoiled nature is one of my favourite regions of Switzerland.
1st August is Swiss National Day – the public holiday celebrating the foundation of Swiss Confederation. On that particular day in 1291 the representatives of three original cantons Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden (today split into Obwalden and Nidwalden) formed an alliance. This action is now regarded as the founding of Switzerland and is annually celebrated all across Switzerland with different events and fireworks.
My husband and I spent this year’s the Swiss National Day in a very Swiss way: we went hiking. Our destination was 1.898 m high mountain Grosser Mythen located in canton Schwyz. Continue reading
Like every year in the summer, my husband’s parents came to visit us in Lucerne. Because they recently got crazy about hiking, their visit was supposed to be a series of hiking trips around Swiss Alps. Unfortunately due to the rainy weather, we’ve only managed to do one hiking trip. This was the trip to Pilatus, Lucerne’s home mountain.
On a sunny Sunday in June I’ve visited gorgeous Oeschinen Lake (Oeschinensee) for the second time. Some of you might remember, I’ve already been there previous summer and I loved the area. When friends invited us to go hiking there, my husband and I didn’t hesitate long before we accepted the invitation to this stunning alpine lake in the midst of the Swiss Alps.
Swiss cows are essential part of Swiss culture and landscape – so important, it is hard to imagine Switzerland without its cows. Did you know more than 700.000 cows live in Switzerland? Here are some of those amazing animals I’ve had a pleasure to meet on my trips around Switzerland accompanied with some interesting facts about them:
- The most common cow breeds in Switzerland are Simmental cattle, Brown Swiss cattle, Holstein cattle and Eringer cattle.
The spring is in its full bloom, and I finally managed to complete the video of my February ski trip to Melchsee Frutt, a small ski resort in Central Switzerland. I hope you all enjoyed this trip down memory lane.
In January I’ve skied the snowy slopes of Kleine Scheidegg – Männlichen ski area located in the Swiss Alps above the village of Grindelwald in Jungfrau Region . You can read more about this trip here; here is the video of the snaps from that great day on snow. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
What to do on a sunny February day in Switzerland? You go skiing! Previous Saturday my husband and I did just that. We went to Melchsee Frutt, one of our favourite places in Central Switzerland.
A week and half ago, my husband and I finally started ski season and went skiing to one of our favourite places ski, to Grindelwald in Berner Oberland. Some of my followers are probably aware I love this ski resort. Ski slopes there are great, the landscape is stunningly beautiful, the infrastructure is good and it is close enough to Luzern for a day ski trip.
