There is nothing like waking up to crisp,fresh air and the view of Swiss Alps!
Since we were planning to be out all day, we headed to the supermarket in town to stock up on cup noodles and sandwiches. Then, we board the train in anticipation for some glacier experience. Originally, we thought our Swiss pass includes train ride up to Kleine Scheidegg. As it turned out, our Swiss Pass only includes train rides up to Wengen, Grindlewald, and Murren. We ended up having to pay around 80CHF for the two of us on the train. Since we were already there, we may as well make the most of it, here are the pictures:
From Kleine Scheidegg, we took the train down to Gimmelwald for a picnic lunch. It was there that I discovered locals drink from the fountains we saw everywhere.
Of the three mountain top villages we visited, Murren was my favorite. The Cable-car ride up was a bonus. There were cows wearing bells everywhere. It seems like they have a very good life in the Alps.
We spend about an hour exploring the town, and then took the cable car down to Lauterbrunnen for a closer view of the waterfall.
It was a leisurely day hopping around towns in Berner Oberland!
