Landscape – Heidiland

Not exactly Heidiland, but close enough! You can of course climb that mountain and come down again, but you also have the possibility to hop onto a little train that will take you to the top. With two kids, we chose that option, and then walked all the way to the bottom. As you can see on the picture, it was an absolutely gorgeous day, and we did enjoy our outing very much.

We also went there once at night in the winter with a friend and her two boys. We took the train up again, then made our way to the restaurant to have fondue. It was on a clear, cold night that had a magical feel to it.

So here you go, the perfect image most people have of Switzerland: fresh air, hills and mountains, green pastures, forests, chalets and cows with their bells!

      Thanks, I was rather pleased with it as it did come out the way we were experiencing it! xx

      Thank you! Yep, with children, I think you have to, it takes quite a while to get down too!

    Oh wow!! Can I live there? Now please! You’ve just captured my most perfect place. This also looks a lot like an area I visited in Germany’s Black Forest. Switzerland has some of the most stunning landscapes I’ve ever seen. Gorgeous shot!

      Thank you! So glad you love it so much. Yes, it is still easy to find unspoiled, picture perfect places!

    That make sit look lovely. I really didn’t like the countryside in Switerland very much when we went in November. Maybe we were in the wrong area.

      Obviously you were! 😉 Although November is probably not the best time to visit, it is often grey and showing the countryside in a unflattering way.

    That’s it it’s going on my list! I loved Heidi as a kid and I would love to visit Switzerland. My Dad has been tempting me with his pics too, such a beautiful unspoilt country isn’t it. LOVE fondue too 🙂

      Since you like hills and mountains, this should indeed definitely be on your list!! And yes, no shortage of fondue!! 😉

      Thank you! I took this as we stepped out of the train “station” as I thought it was so perfect. 🙂

    Yes, Switzerland is as beautiful as its clichés ! For the best.
