    Aareschlucht was suggested by one of my Bernese friends as another day trip on my upcoming visit and hence the discovery of yet another one of your marvelous pages..I love the idea of a ride on Ballenberg-bahn...Great info here too..Thanks!

    I made a quick trip to Meiringen yesterday in beautiful sunny weather but the chapel was closed. BTW, I do love Merengue!

    Du warst also mal wieder in meiner alten Heimat ? Meiringen kenne ich gut, aber das Monster und das Holmes-Museum kannte ich noch nicht !

    another place in Switzerland where Globetrott has eaten Käseschnitte, and this is something that good old Sherlock never has, at least Sir Arthur Conan Doyle did not mention it in the books (as far as I remember)

    What a nice place! Such a recreation of a literature character seems like the one about Don Quixote in La Mancha (Spain)
