As I was on Rigi (also known as Queen of the mountains) there was more to see than Rigi Bahnen. We could listen to 30 alphorns!
Thanks to my dear for this wonderful weekend.
Here are some more impressions:

Zoo Zürich

Yesterday the team of Geschichtenoase went to Zoo Zürich to a guided tour through the new Lewa Savanna. The 5.6 hectares spanning exhibit provides a generous open spaces for giraffes, rhinos and other animals as well.
We’ve seen Hyenas and porcupines which I haven’t seen before and on the way back we heard monkeys making noises in a way I’ve never heard them during the day.
The pictures of the hyena were taken through glass-walls, but with the other photos they still give you some impression of our zoo and I got to capture the area without people on it. 🙂
Thanks to our guide and the Geschichtenoase-team!

Last Sunday I spontaneously went to Schwyz to view the exhibition “Made in Witzerland” which explores Swiss humour in all its diversity. I had a few good laughs and can really recommend to have a look at it (until 24.01.2021). If you do so, take the time to read some jokes in the many books, that are displayed.

In the afternoon I followed the advice of an advertising brochure and walked the “Joke hiking trail Muota Valley”. It’s a wonderful area and here again, many jokes made me laugh and I really liked the friendliness of the local people.

Schynige Platte

From Schynige Platte you get dream views of the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, the surrounding peaks as well as Lake Thun and Lake Brienz.
The sunrise was amazing!

I really enjoyed the great company and spending time in the mountains.
Here are some impressions from last weekend:

Botanical Garden Grueningen and Bachtel Tower

These pictures I took a while ago. We went to the botanical garden in Grueningen, which is lovely and has picnic spots and fireplaces. There are giant trees, beautiful flowers and a big variety of plants to discover. It’s definitely worth a visit.

Afterwards we went to Bachtel Tower on 1,115 m. From there you have an amazing view on Zuercher Oberland with lake Zurich, Lake Pfaeffikon, Greifensee, Egelsee, Luetzelsee and of course some villages, mountains and forests as well.
