Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland, with beautiful Lake Zürich and many other architectural wonders. Fifa World Museum is located right here for football fans. I rather chose to scroll through Toy Museum. If you want to see how toys looked like 300 years ago, just spare some time for it. Quite fascinated with these preserves I decided to pay a visit to a church nearby, and the architecture and carvings were marvellous.
Geneva is globally known for being the headquarters of the mighty United Nations. But, the city's vintage charm, eloquent looks and bubbling energy will not only help you relax but live life at large.
The next morning, I took a train to Bern. Here, I paid a visit to a famous local landmark, Einstein's House. Charmed by the many exquisite cobbled streets and decorated facades along the path, I enjoyed a scenic view of Lake Thun along the drive between Wilderswil and Därligen, where I decided to pick up some lunch.

Trummelbach is the place in Switzerland where you can watch a waterfall inside a mountain! 20 km from Interlaken, Switzerland, is 'Trummelbach' where you can watch the glacier waterfalls finding their way through the mountains before jumping out of the mountain heights as a waterfall. The Swiss have built a tunnel lift inside the mountain which carries you to the top where the glacier melts of Eiger, Monk and Jungfrau enter the mountain crevices. The well illuminated stairways with landings constructed at vantage points, enable the tourist to watch the path of the waterfall inside the mountain. The roar of 20,000 litres of water per second carrying boulder debris takes one close to raw nature.

Those of us familiar with the idea of "Himalayas" as the abode of "Shiva" would be pleasantly surprised when you reach "Top of Europe" Jungfrau. The head of a young woman, etched by nature on permanent snow at a height of nearly 4000 meters, bears a striking resemblance to Lord Shiva, with his tresses and the third eye. The Jungfrau (maiden/virgin in German) is the highest peak located in the Bernese Oberland region of Swiss Alps. Accessible by train, hotels/restaurants, an Ice Palace,an Observatory are some of the attractions at Jungfrau.
Most of us have seen Schilthorn -in the Bond movie "On her majesty's secret service". Here is what it feels like to be there in real. Schilthorn is a 2970 meter high summit in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. The panoramic views from this summit, of the Jungfrau, Thun, Black forest and Mont Blanc(in clear weather) makes this mountain a photographer's delight.
Although I was very amused by the name for some inexplicable reason, Harder Kulm is a paradise for hikers and those looking to have a grand view of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau as well as the town of Interlaken flanked by the lakes Thun and Brienz. 1322 meters above sea level, a 10 minute long funicular on the Harder Railway from the Interlaken Ost station gets you to Harder Kulm. There is a playground in order to keep children and even adults occupied and a restaurant that serves delicious local fare. 30 CHF should be enough to get you to and back from Interlaken's home mountain.
