a walk through the valley of waterfalls

While being back in Germany, I also spent some days visiting my old home for 4 years - Bern in Switzerland. One of the things I do miss in Australia are proper mountains. You know that kind of mountains with glaciers, snow and above 2000m high! The highest mountain in Australia is Mount Kosciuszko with staggering 2280m!! Which is okf course, nothing compared the the Alps I have grown to love so much!!

As I didn't have time for a proper hike, me and a couple of friends decided to just head to Lauternbrunnen Valley and take a walk along the scenic route along the valley. Such a great decision! The air was warm, the sun was out and the mountains looked breathtaking as I remembered them!

The Lauterbrunnen Valley is also called the valley of waterfalls, there are over a hundred of them and is one of my most favorite places in Switzerland! It is also the favorite place for basejumpers - we saw (and heard!) a couple of them jumping during our walk! The sound of the parachute opening so close to the ground has heartattack potential!

Even if I am not ready to move to Switzerland (yet), I am already looking forward to explore more of the mountains once we are back! Such a beautiful and peaceful place!

If you need some more Switzerland recommendations, here are my favorite mountain posts:

Enjoy!! *K


  1. These are stunning Kristina! We definitely don't do mountains at all well here - we were so blown away when we saw the Swiss Alps x

  2. Ich krieg schon wieder Heimweh/Fernweh, obwohl doch grade erst zurück aus der Schweiz. Das Lauterbrunnen Tal merk ich mir... fürs nächste Mal dann.

    Herzlich, Katja
