Evening view over Lake Thun

I spent two night high above the tiny village of Leissigen at the lake Thun in the Bernese Oberland and loved the place. There is a lovely B&B on a farm called Finel with only a few guest rooms. It's really of the beaten path and I think it should stay like this.


Our home away from home


Childhood days came to my mind when I saw this mountain again. Spent nearly each summer under its shadow when we were kids. It was mountain weather too as you can see on the pic. At least I made it up to the top of the Niesen this year, after 30 years only seen it from the lake. It's a must when there are no clouds around, you have all the Bernese alps under your nose from up there.....

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A lovely place to feel home away from home
  • Cons:The cow bells are your alarm clock
  • In a nutshell:Will stay here again that's for sure....
