“Seeing it fries the circuits like lightning to a lamp.”
– Jedidiah Jenkins, on visiting Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland
Jedidiah Jenkins shared this image on his Instagram Stories recently and I’ve wanted to visit Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland ever since:
Some folks say it’s the most spectacular glacial valley in the world.
Lauterbrunnen is situated in one of the trough valleys in the Alps and was first mentioned in writing in the year 1240. I read that the name means ‘many fountains’ which describes the magnificence of the area with its 72 thundering waterfalls. The alpine meadows below are colorful and the landscape is dotted with cheerful-looking mountain homes and inns.
I also learned that it’s one of the biggest nature conservation areas in all of Switzerland and that there are several great walking/cycling trails in this particular region.
Even the cemetery in Lauterbrunnen bursts with beauty and color…
I don’t know if that’s a vacation rental in that last pic, but if it is, I’d nickname it Circuit Frier. 😉
