BEAUTIFUL AREA

MEIRINGEN IS THE CHIEF TOWN IN THE HASLI VALLEY ABOVE LAKE BRIENZ. WE STAYED IN A CHALET APARTMENT IN HASLIBERG REUTI ON THE MOUNTAIN ABOVE MEIRINGEN FOR A WEEK. REICHENBACHFALLE IS JUST OUTSIDE OF TOWN AND HAS A FUNICULAR TO THE TOP. THIS IS THE FALLS FROM WHICH IT IS THOUGHT THE FICTIONAL CHARACTER, SHERLOCK HOLMES AND MORIARTY FELL TO THEIR DEATH.

SHERLOCK HOLMES

THERE IS A MUSEUM CONTAINING MEMORABILLA BELONGING TO HOLMES AND DOCTOR WATSON. HIS CHARACTER WAS RESUSCITATED BY CONAN DOYLE A FEW YEARS AFTER THE FALL FROM REICHENBACHFALLE.

30 MINUTES FOR US TO GET TO THE STATION

WE WALKED A QUARTER OF A MILE TO THE BUS STATION AND THEN RODE THE BUS DOWN THE MOUNTAIN TO BRUNIG WHERE WE COULD CATCH THE TRAIN TO MOST PLACES IN SWITZERLAND.
