More Zermatt and Grindelwald Switzerland

We loved Zermatt and even stayed an extra day which meant we got to partake in the street party and fireworks display for the Swiss National Holiday.  Afterwards we moved on to Grindelwald, another beautiful swiss town in the Jungfrau area, right at the foot of the Eiger.  We enjoyed camping at the Gletscherdorf campground near the river with a beautiful view of the mountain right out of our tent window....we stayed an extra day there too!
Lunch at the Riffelberg Hotel 

On our hike from Gorner Grat we came across a herd of black faced sheep these two lambs had literally just been born

Leaving our campsite


  1. Katherine got locked in a bathroom in Grindelwald a few years back. No one was around and she thought she would be spending the rest of her life there until a cleaning person heard her calls for help.

  2. Unlike most of the Western European nations, Switzerland is not part of the European Union, nor is it in the Schengen Zone.discover here
