Viewing Point Schoenbuehel

Reviewed By drjavedrasheed

Between Interlaken and Lucern in Switzerland as you wind your way through the scenic mountain view by road there is a spot where tourists stop to appreciate and capture a few shots of the spectacular view of the lake and valley below spread like a map.The view is breathtaking and it's really awesome !! One of my favourite quotes on travel :
" Travel the world,
Fill your suitcase with treasures,
They all have a story
That becomes a memory for life...."
And I do have such fond memories of Switzerland

Aare Gorge

Reviewed By J_travelB - Guelph, Canada

This gorge is quite an experience. A walk-through cut in the mountain with walkways and tunnels along the face of the rocks and through in places. Very new to see. Seems not all that well advertised but quite impressive - by far! Well worth stopping here if you are in the area. It is about 1.4km to walk from one end to the other. The cost is very reasonable with gift shops and washrooms at both ends and you can enter from either end as well.
We were there in August, so it was pleasant and warm throughout the walk. A lot of work went into designing this experience - all the structures to walk on built into the rock face. Very neat! Free parking.

Bergbahnen Meiringen-Hasliberg

The cable car company Meiringen-Hasliberg operates a summer and winter sports resort in the Bernese Oberland, ranging from 600 up to 2500 m asl. Every year, we transport over half a million people to the sun in the Mountains, where they explore sports, culinary and alpine culture. The Haslital holiday region is located in Switzerland between Interlaken and Lucerne in the eastern Bernese Oberland. The valley is nestled between the passes Brunig, Grosse Scheidegg, Susten and Grimsel. Family-friendly, varied leisure and sports facilities, but also the awareness of tradition and cultural characteristics, are the characteristics of an impressive holiday region in the heart of Switzerland.

If you stay in Hasliberg, you are very central from a lot of sightseeing. Only 30 minutes from Ballenberg Museum, Meiringen, Aareschlucht, Brienzersee... And there are such a lot of things to do and to see! In Hasliberg there are two mountain Railways which are going up and lead to a lot of wonderful hikes. With small children I recommend the two Muggenstutz-hikes. They are all about the dwarfes of Hasliberg and their adventures. Very very cute made!

Just relax and enjoy your day up on the Rothorn!

Reviewed By puchka - Bengaluru, India

The train journey of 7.5 kms takes more than an hour, steam driven, through tunnels cut into the Mountains, across cattle grazing Meadows, and landscape untouched. It's an experience that takes you into a era long past with the rail staff dressed in traditionally. A must ride for tourists.

Muggestutz Zwergenweg

Adventures on the Dwarf Trail Dwarves have long been present in our valley and Muggestutz is the oldest Hasli dwarf. Some of his adventures have been written about and children can relive his adventures on the trail between Mägisalp and Bidmi. They will enjoy the pinecone drying platform, the eagle swing, the caves and much more! Hiking time for the 5km dwarf trail from Mägisalp via Gummenalp to Bidmi is approx. 2 hrs. Starting point is approx. 100m below the Mägisalp restaurant. The trail leads gently down across alpine meadows and through pine Forests.

Reviewed By MONSETA - Barcelona, Spain

A path down the hill prepared specifically for children. You take any of the two cable cars (Hasliberg Reuti or Hasliberg Bidmi) and you have to follow the blue Muggestutzweg signs down the hill. There is an explanation In German, English and French when you get to any of the dwarf sites prepared for children. They follow the story of Muggenstutz, his girlfriend Raurinde and their friends. You'll find little dwarf houses with all the furniture, plates, pans, clothes... to play with. Also places where dwarfs are supposed to dry and store pines, interesting Watermills, Bridges, etc. Little children (and not so little) have a great time, and so do parents

Gletscherschlucht Rosenlaui

Reviewed By incahueca - Geneva, Switzerland

This is a highlight if you are in the Haslital region above Meiringen. The walk through this glaciar gorge in Rosenlaui is particularly impressive. The path can be wet and people with vertigo should not watch the river below. But the scenery is fantastic. It is very refreshing during hot days. Better start early morning if you want to be in a quiet atmosphere. It takes about half an hour to get through the gorge. Entrance fee is 8 swiss francs.
A great day trip includes other fantastic attractions around Rosenlaui. For this purpose catch at yellow bus to Schwarzwaldalp from Meringen train station. Check the bus schedules as there are departures every hour. Go to the final stop Schwarzwaldalp, visit the free and scenic "Säge" ("saw factory") and walk around within one hour time. Then take the same bus back to Meiringen, stop at Rosenlaui and walk into the gorge before geting back to the bus one or two hours later. Go down to Meriingen again and stop at Zwirgi bus stop. From there you can walk to the top station of the Reichenbach funicular and enjoy the views on the impressive Reichenbach waterfall. You can take a funicular ride or go up on the same way and catch the bus back to Meiringen.

Families and schol classes can find all they are looking for here: water games, games of skill, resting stations, and picnic areas. The "Mooraculum" consists of various stations that are themed around the mystical theme of the moor and the world in and around the moor. A large park is located directly beside the restaurant Rossweid. The nearby "Sundwon Way" takes you directly to the Mooraculum. The hiking trail that is suitable for children is 1.5 kilometers lond and leads to the flat moor meadows and a high forest. During the stops at the 17 stations, visitors can learn about how the moors are formed and which insects and animals live there. Visitors will certainly be stimulated into experiencing the Moor with all of their senses. The experience in the Mooraculum provides information in a playful way, making the experiences of accepting and learning ned information about moors as well as teaching how to live and respect nature.

A short ride on the gondola takes you up to a beautiful water play park with ponds, water games, skill games and other fun activities for kids. We had lunch in the restaurant but they have nice picnic and barbecue areas so next time we bring some sausages. Tracks for bikes and trails for hiking makes this a must visit with or without kids.

I did not expect to meet this small town on the way to Interlaken.Finally we decided to get off the train to visit the town.I think this is a very correct decision.There is a huge lake behind the town.The whole atmosphere is great and peaceful.Very quiet town.When I just took a seat near the lake,I did not want to leave anymore.If you have a few days to stay here,it will be better.2hours later,I left and remembered the name of the town Lungern.
