Here are some impressions of another wonderful location I visited last Friday for a friends wedding.
Candles in the church (the picture with the ten candles shaping a heart) we usually light wishing all the best for beloved people and I wish all the best to all of you.
Snapdragons (the flower on the stem) are around here called “lions-mouth”, because when you slightly squeeze their blossom, they open, as if it was a mouth.
I experienced a lot during my fall vacation.
We visited Europapark, were in Brienz and went there to the Giessbach Waterfall, Reichenbach Falls and the Museum of Clocks and Mechanical Musical Instruments.
In the Ballenberg Museum I gained my first experience in blacksmithing and made a nutcracker for walnuts!
A friends wedding in the mountains including a carriage ride was the final highlight and I am meanwhile well back into everyday life. I wish you all a good day.
With a historic train, led by the well 100 year old SLM locomotive Ae 3/6 I we went from Zurich HB via Saeuliamt to Lucerne. From there, the steamboat “Stadt Luzern” took us during lunch to Vitznau , where we took the 150 year old Railway via Rigi to Goldau. From Goldau we traveled along the Sihl Valley back to Zurich HB.
It was a wonderful day and the weather was perfect once more.
On Friday we went from Vitznau to Rigi Kulm in the saloon car “Belle Epoque, accompanied by the stories of Niklaus Riggenbach. The view was amazing and the dinner delicious. Thank you very much my dearest for this wonderful evening.
In one picture below you can see Rigi’s shadow across lake Aegeri.
Today we took the cable car from Sörenberg to Brienzer Rothorn, where we had a nice lunch. We were lucky! The weather stayed dry and we saw the lake and many mountains around. In the afternoon we took the steam train to Brienz. It was a very nice day with my parents and my dearest.
We hoped for sun and great views, but got mist and it made the day even more special. The walk was nice and the air fresh as always in the mountains. On the chairlift I had to giggle a lot, it felt very surreal to ride into the whiteness. In the Bergbeiz some young local men played Ländler with contra-bass, handörgeli and accordion. It was cozy to sit in the warm and hear live music again after a long time missing it.
Seleger Moor is a world full of delicate floral scents, birdsong, ferns, peonies, frogs, water lilies, azaleas and rhododendrons. My favorite smells there are the yellow azaleas and the peonies.
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:
This weekend was the anniversary of 150 years of Rigi Bahnen. Here are some pictures of some locomotives and carriages including steam locomotives 7, 16 and 17.
Here are a few impressions of last Sundays visit to my favourite park.
Below you see some pictures of yesterdays super-moon. The top-right moon was in the evening before and the other two in the morning.
