Weesen – Amden, Switzerland

I am still enjoying my vacation at home and making spontaneous half-day trips or day trips to special places in the closer or further area of where I live. You know, Switzerland is only a stone throw away, Austria about 10 minutes, and it is about 45 minutes to Germany.

Last Thursday, we went to a waterfall close to the Walensee – a beautiful lake framed by two mountain chains. Whenever I go to Zurich, I am driving along that lake and look towards the opposite shore and watching a long waterfall. For quite a while it has been on my list to visit the other side of the lake, the waterfall, and a village on one of those mountains.

Enjoy the 1 hour trip to three waterfalls and well (the Rinquelle).

We also passed the ruins of a former watchtower.

And now the waterfalls and the well. I will share single images of the falls because it is so much more impressive.

After we returned to the car, we drove up to the high-lying village, Amden. Unfortunately, I could not find a good viewpoint, but the photo below gives an idea of the breathtaking view down towards the lake is from up there.

Then we found a nice coffee place and guess what… we had an ice cream πŸ˜‹

Let’s see what the next week will bring. I hope that we can make it to the Ticino.

In Love and Light

I feel the same about waterfalls. They are so majestic, so vivid and full of energy, but also cleansing and calming. I am glad you liked it too. I cannot believe it is already two weeks ago that we went there… sight… πŸ’–

Hi, Tameeka. Thank you very much for stopping by! Yes, that’s exactly what I thought too and I was so looking forward to going on a little tour through the neighbor country finally. I am glad you liked it 😊


Hi, Michael, I have not been here for two days. As you know, no worries and no apologies. Your visits are always appreciated, regardless of the frequency. Yes, it is closer to Austria than to Germany. On Friday I will post photos from a trip where we were close to Italy. And on Saturday we will go to Meersburg at the Lake Constance. Finally getting a bit closer to your place… lol
