The Swiss of course are well known for their watches, cheese and chocolate, but the mountain scenery, in my opinion, is the deepest connection. The Matterhorn, Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau - all iconic sites, and worth seeing. A few years ago we went up Mount Titlis and Mount Pilatus. Also worthy. Just beautiful.
With popularity come the crowds. The day we went up Mount Titlis was beautiful but took 4 hours waiting in line for the cable car to reach the top. The wonderful thing about Switzerland, though, is there is no shortage of mountain scenery, from a distance or up close. To enjoy an area less crowded is not difficult.
An area we discovered oh so many years ago is Meiringen - Hasliberg, a perfect spot to explore and enjoy in all seasons, as we did. These pictures are in June, but it's also a fabulous winter resort - in fact its where I learned how to ski.
The four villages of Goldern, Hohfluh, Reuti and Wasserwendi sit up above the valley offering exceptional views. The chalet we had rented was in the village of Wasserwendi, and as you can see, it also makes a perfect place for some peace, calm and a lot of fresh air.
In Hasliberg, take the cable car up the mountain. It operates in the winter months to access the ski area and during summer months for incredible hiking options.
