Mountains of Death – attendance #2 – plus Bernese Oberland

Trümmelbach FallsAgain I had a strong feeling emerging, that I would need some more heavy earache through live music. Since I loved the Mountains of Death Festival so much the year before, I decided that I should go to Muotathal again. This time I joined some people for the train ride from Vienna. Then at the Mountains of Death festival I met a guy who I often have seen at concerts in Vienna. He was traveling on interrail and since I was on vacation anyway, I joined him for a few days after the festival.

It turned out to be a great decision: by train we went to Interlaken, where we build up our tents for a few more nights, making some exciting day trips. That way we visited the Trümmelbach waterfalls, which are 10 waterfalls inside the mountain, accessible through a tunnel system. Afterwards we took a train to the car free village of Mürren and visited some more waterfalls. The next day we took a boat ride to the Giessbach Falls, where we were also taking Europe’s oldest and still running cable railway, before our boat taxi picked us up again and brought us back to Interlaken. After my friend continued his journey I visited Grindelwald (where one of my favourite James Bond movie was filmed) and tried to get a look at the mountain Jungfrau and at the Eiger north wall, which was impossible due to the cloudy weather. So as an alternative program I decided to walk into the glacier canyon of the Grindelwald glacier. Another breathtaking place in the Berner Oberland.
