この街が気に入って、ホテルを変えての一泊追加滞在して、簡単なハイキングをした。 幸運にも、10月中旬は降雪前の最後の秋晴れに日だった。駅前から村営のグリンデルワルトバスに乗り、終点グロースシャイデックに着いた。 途中は、急な坂道、すれ違い不可能な細い道、その間の４０分弱がスリリングで、窓外は街から見るアイガーとは全く違う景観に嬉々とした。家内が足が悪いのでハイキングと言えないほどの峠の散策をして再... more »I loved this city, I changed the hotel and stayed for an additional night and took a simple hike. Luckily, mid-October was the last autumn weather of the day before the snowfall. I took the Grindelwald bus from the station to the village, and reached the end of the growth Scheidegg. On the way, a steep hill, a narrow path impossible to cross, and less than 40 minutes between them were thrilling, and out window gleefully to the spectacle completely different from the Eiger seen from the town. My wife was so bad that I could not say hiking, so I walked around the mountain pass and went back to the bus. It was nice to have extended overnight.
A great bike ride. Amazing views. The swim in the lake at the end was the perfect finish to the perfect day. What a place!
Even the Bernese Oberland can hardly present itself more beautifully. The traffic-calmed route is absolutely fantastic for a bike tour. This pass is blocked for general car traffic. Only the Postbus with its classical horn concerto sometimes penetrates the majestic silence. If you want to discover the Swiss Alps by bike, you simply have to ride up there.
