At the top, one could actually start skiing. In the background some of the north faces of the Lauterbrunnen Valley.

It’s really only a short hike, but with the snow cover it looks impressive.

August 2013

Once again our summer vacation was a pilgrimage to the Alps.  And once again we stayed at Victoria Jungfrau in Interlaken.  This was another wonderful Wenger family vacation.


In between our day trips to Saas Fee, Jungfrau, Öschinensee, Aletschgletscher, Leukerbad, Furkapass, Grimselpass, Kandersteg (with Aletschgletsher), Schilthorn and Mürren, we enjoyed the view from our balcony as we watched the mountains and the hang gliders while sipping wine.


Day trips from Interlaken were to:

Aletschgletscher         Furkapass            Grimselpass            Jungfrau,

Kandersteg                Leukerbad            Mürren                   Öschinensee

Saas Fee                    Schilthorn
