Adventures in Switzerland


On our 2000 trip, we traveled by the narrow gauge Berner Oberland Bahn (BOB for short) from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen. Here, we boarded a funicular for a short ride to Grutschalp, where we boarded another narrow gauge train, running on the cliff top, for the ride to Murren. Our first day in Murren was beautiful, but then the weather moved in, so we spent the next two days hiking in the valley below Murren, ending up in Interlaken both days.
