Swiss Postcard Sceneries

I have seen and travelled to many corners of my home country, but there is always something new to discover. Today I share some pics with you of gorgeous landscapes I saw in just one day on one hike. That is why I call them Swiss postcard sceneries ;0).

What about you? Are you enjoying the beauties on your home turf? Do you have plans to travel to any of them?

Now, let’s go hiking in the Bernese Alps.

The flora is in full bloom. Here you look at a meadow of buttercups mixed with splashes of other flowers. The backdrop? Well, it is formed by the Alps :-).

A little later you close in on this spot…

Terrific, don’t you think?

Welcome to Lauenensee – Lake Lauenen

Here comes the icing on the cake: Just a week after the lockdown was lifted in Switzerland, we had this magnificent and normally very popular scenery almost all to ourselves. Yay!

Push for a good bit of more difference in altitude and enter slightly rougher terrain on your way to several impressive waterfalls and sceneries.

What do you think so far?

My thoughts consisted of “wow” only and I could sit by that water forever. But down we went again along the upper river and along the Lake Lauenen once more, but now on the other side.

Only to reach the valley and find the “Louibach”(a stream) peacefully and in typical meltwater colors flowing downstream.

When you think that was it. Nope. :0)

Shortly before being back in the village you come across a marsh where grass is stacked to dry the old fashioned way and the Alps still make for such an awesome canvas. Sure enough part of the village goes well on a postcard, too.

Here is to many postcard moments! Enjoy the season.

Bonus: These guys can be found in the region as well ;0).

  • Hallo Daniela, wunderschöne Bilder und guete Komentare von Euren wander ferien im Saaneland. und beim alphirt hansueli,
    sehr schöne aufnahmen von seinem Haus aussen wie auch drinnen.
    Natürlich vom Lauenen see und den Wasserfällen. / frage ist der grosse die Simmenfälle, zuhinterst in der Lenk, ??.
    Ich finde es super dass Ihr zwei die wunderschöne Natur unserer schönen Schweiz so erleben und geniessen könnt. / meine erinnerungen sind noch von der Rekruten schule her,
    das war damals im 1968 noch viel Drill, und Eilmärsche ( 10 km in 50 min, mit Packung )
    da blieb leider keine Zeit die Landschaft zu geniessen./
    Doch wir werden jetzt anfang Sept. in Lenk etwas nachholen.
    ganz liebe Grüsse und weiterhin viel freude am fotografieren.
    Dein Dady
