aut_7804.jpg (297857 bytes) Hiking in the Bernese Oberland. This hike goes from Grindelwald First via the Faulhorn to Schynige Platte. Undoubtedly one of the most scenic hikes worldwide. To the left you always see the 16,000 feet mountains Finsterahorn as well as the triple-peak formation Mount Jungfrau, Moench and Eiger. To the right you see the Brienzer Rothorn as well as Lakes Thun and Brienz. This picture shows the Bachalpsee.
