Sitting on Top of the World…..

Yesterday evening we wandered down to the station at Interlaken Ost to buy our tickets for Bern and then Zurich so we are organised now for our remaining eight days in Switzerland. On the way back we went into a Chinese restaurant called Bamboo. It was very busy and we enjoyed our prawn dishes.

Today we decided to go for a wander through the shops in the old town and, of course, we stopped for ☕️ and 🍰 at the famous pastry maker, Schuh’s.

Beautiful & fragrant roses all over town.

We then caught the funicular up to Harder Kulm which is 1323 m above sea level. It took about eight minutes to reach the top and seemed to go straight up. We had a perfect day for it! Actually the weather has been wonderful the entire time. We had lunch at the restaurant there – a burger for David and fish and chips for me – both true to form. Both very nice.

The view of Jungfrau from there was incredible and I loved it .

Paragliding is very popular here and you can see many hanging about in the sky at any time. That’s definitely not for me!
Many people took photos beside these characters beside the walk from the funicular to the viewing platform.

Being someone who finds going down on an escalator scary, I was worried about coming down in the funicular. I didn’t get a seat but I gripped the railing very hard and even managed to look down as we slowly moved back to ground level. I was very brave!

We crossed the River Aare by bridge to reach the funicular. There are beautiful flowers everywhere here. It’s very pretty.

I let David go on ahead and went to spend a few minutes of calm in the Japanese garden next to our hotel. It is lovely and if we open our window we can hear the waterfall.

Rest time now before our final dinner with our friends on the tour.

  1. Great choice to spend a few days relaxing. Your day sounds amazing. I went on the funicular to the top of Heidi Klum. Your photos are amazing particularly the flowers. Aren’t the coffee/cakes amazing.
