  Sherlock Holmes town
by sandysmith

Meiringen, the town renowned for Sherlock Holmes and Merringues makes a good base for sightseeing in the Bernese Oberland being at the convergence of three of Switzerland's major passes, Grimsel, Susten and Brunig. THe Reichenbach falls are a popular tourist destination here either walking up or taking the quaint funicular. At Meiringen you can also take the cable-car up to Planplatten to the Alpen Tower, via Hasliberg and Magisalp for more of those swiss alpine vistas and panoramic walks. Much more info and pics of this can be seen on my Meiringen page.
