home sweet home: taking a walk in the emmental

Bern is located closely to the Emmental, which is actually more than only one valley ("tal" means valley in German) and is mostly known for the Emmentaler Cheese.
It is beautiful place with rolling green hills, tiny villages, super old buidlings, farms and Swiss cows.

I love to have long walks up and down the hills, through forests and passing by farms. So lovely! And the weather has been perfect yesterday, spring is definitely not far away any more!! Hurra!!

















Have a great start into this new week! I will be a bit stressed as I leave for Marrakech on Saturday. Just checked the weather forecast, should be nice and around 25 degrees the whole week!

Soooo good!!

  1. These pictures are so beautiful. The buildings are so gorgeous and so different from what I see on a daily basis. I love the picture of the wood wall with the metal tools. Stunning.

  8. Kristina,
    Bon Voyage! Marrakech is calling! Have a ton of fun - I know you will!

    I have a friend named Tal! And they have a pretty Germanic last name. I'm happy to learn what his name means! Now I'm going to show off to him what I learned! Hehehe.

  14. wow- these are so beautiful! I want to transport myself to Germany. Interesting to learn about "tal," it makes sense now that I think of other words including "tal."
    Cheers!
