Brienzer Rothorn

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.

Misty Hoch-Ybrig

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.


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.
