If you’re looking for relaxation, then there’s nothing better than going on an amazing cruise. Set in the heart of the Bernese Oberland, the turquoise-toned Lake Brienz promises experiences that will be engraved in the memories of its visitor. On a cruise, lush landscapes frame turquoise waters as you gaze up towards mountain peaks and silvery waterfalls.
You can also experience Jungfrau joch – Top of Europe which stands at 11,333 feet above sea level, and it is accessible by train, via Europe’s highest railway station. Here, glaciers and an endless supply of peaks will stop you in your snowy tracks. You will feel the icy air sweeping over your face, and snow crunching under your foot and the panorama view will take your breath away.
It is not every day that you are surrounded by beautiful waterfalls. You will be enjoying the view of a total of 72 waterfalls gushing down into the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Don’t forget to also visit the Trümmelbach Falls, they are the biggest subterranean waterfalls in Europe.
The 10 cascades are impressive, especially during the snow thaw from April to June and the glacier melt from June to September. As much as 20,000 liters thunders through the Trümmelbach chasm every second.
Gstaad is a widely known international destination and is known for its high level of prestige. Despite this, it has remained truly Alpine, with its chic charm, British understatement, and authentic traditions. Savor a local experience and enjoy a delicious fondue in a larger-than-life, wooden fondue pot surrounded by the mountain landscape.
The idyllic Lake Lauenen, close to Gstaad, is an ideal spot to take in the beauty of the Alps and to spend a chill day. Situated in a nature reserve, it is a great destination for nature lovers and romantics alike.
You can enjoy a romantic tour with your significant other in a vintage horse-drawn carriage to get to the lake.
