Sorry, for being late with the last part of the trip - but here it is!

Day3-Bernese High Country

Another day of exceptional highlights: The Bernese High Country
Once more a 9am start for the photostop at Lake Brienz.

Lake Brienz



Along the shores at a leisurly pace to Interlaken, then Wilderswil and into the Lauterbrunnen Valley, turning left to Grindelwald. Rolling towards the gigantic Eiger North Face is something else…

Eiger-North Face



Through town, the way leads towards the foot of the Upper Grindelwald Glacier, yet another stunning sight. After the carpark the road is closed for public traffic, open only for the local bus/ public transport.
After the stop it was back to the Lauterbrunnen Valley towards the town of Lauterbrunnen where the Staubbachfalls drop over 300m over the steep cliff onto the valley floor, one of the highest waterfalls in Europe.
The Lauterbrunnen Valley hosts a total of 72 waterfalls!
