  • Schynige Platte – Top of Swiss Tradition

    The Schynige Platte is a small mountain ridge and a viewpoint in the Bernese Oberland and belongs to the Schwarzhorn group. It is one of the first mountains I visited when I arrived in Switzerland about 5 years and I can still clearly remember its botanical garden, where I saw the Edelweiss for the first […]

    Since last autumn I’ve been thinking about going to the Mainau Island, but because of the season and my allergy of pollen, I postponed the trip again and again.

  • Le Moléson – a mountain of recreation

    Le Moléson is a mountain of the Swiss Prealps, overlooking the region of Gruyères in the canton of Fribourg. In fact, the first time that I heard about it was when I was on Rochers de Naye, the parent peak of  Le Moléson. This time, when I was planning my trip to the demonstration cheese dairy […]
