“Switzerland is a country where very few things begin, but many things end”.
In my case, Switzerland marked the end to my Europe trip. I had been to few other European countries like France, Netherlands and Belgium before landing on the Swiss soil. And I was already so mesmerized by the beauty I had seen. So, my expectations from Switzerland wasn’t too high. But traveling through the country made me think otherwise, even when the majestic Alps was not in my list.
The very first city which comes to an Indian mind when you talk about Switzerland is Zurich. Of course, I have seen DDLJ like every one of you and it wasn’t any different for me as well.
I checked into my service apartment in Zurich which was by the street close to the central railway station. I must point that the transport in Switzerland is better than many of the other European countries. So, using public transport should be your first choice. Just buy a daily pass and enjoy it throughout the day by all means – trains/trams/buses.
I have always had this inclination towards waterfalls and mountains when it comes to travel. I like watching them just because they make me feel so “teensy-weensy” about humans.
Following the same feeling, I started with the most powerful waterfall in Europe - Rhine Falls. My means of transport was a train journey from Central station to Rhine Falls. Trains in Europe can make you see the best landscapes of the country. If you still remember DDLJ from my last reference, you would know I am not joking.
Besides enjoying the lush green landscapes passing by, I also read about my destination. I was amazed to know that The Rhine Falls were formed in the last ice age, approximately 14,000 to 17,000 years ago, by erosion-resistant rocks narrowing the riverbed. Did you read anything like “teensy-weensy” above?
