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