A Solo Swiss Trip

Hi guys!

Just a quick heads up, this post contains a video and a few pictures.

If you look above this post, you’ll find a video of what I remembered to record while in Switzerland, between feeling awkward speaking to a camera, forgetting to charge it constantly, and the weather raining on my parade, this is all I managed to get. Video should be up top ^^

Below you’ll find pictures of the places I visited while there as well. This is just so you can have a visual of what Switzerland is like. Along the way I’ll be posting an itinerary, an approximate budget, things I noticed while in Switzerland, and my overall opinion of the country. At least from what I had the pleasure of experiencing.

Either way, I hope you enjoy it, and if you’re thinking of going to Switzerland, I hope this seals the deal.

Keep in mind, pictures and videos will never do any country justice.

Lucerne | Luzern

Lucern

Old Town Lucerne/Luzern: Murals and wall paintings everywhere.

I went on a Sunday, places were closed and streets were mostly empty. This is normal.

The grass really is that green.

You don’t know the peace of hearing cow bells, until that’s all you can hear.

Lauterbrunnen is known as the valley of 72 waterfalls.

Trummelbach Falls is a glacier waterfall. It carries down the water from the Jungfrau down to the valley. It feels like it’s thundering everywhere you walk.

The Swiss are very proud of their flags, and it’s beautiful. That straight line in the back, that’s the cable car route.

From Geneva airport to Wengen by rail takes about 3 hours 50 minutes, changing three times at Bern, Interlaken Ost and Lauterbrunnen.

I had read that before going. That’s why I landed in Zurich, so I can cut the train ride some by stopping in Lucerne for a while and heading up to Wengen. Even the train ride was beautiful <3

Thank you! When I saw the graveyard I was in shock, just because it didn’t feel like a scary lonely place. Felt vibrant and sweet. Definitely different from what I expected.

Hi James! Your girlfriend would love it. There’s so much to see, and it’s really different from most countries. It’s incredibly clean too. You’ll have a great time if you go, and in the summer I’m sure the weather will be perfect.

Oh my god! What a treat to see these pictures. My sister lives in Basel and I haven’t visited her yet. Seems like you had a great time. Can the glacier waterfall be accessed easily?

You should visit! It’s not cheap to go so having someone there is a million times better. I went on a Sunday and everything was closed though, I was scared lol. Yes! The waterfall is easy to access, you just have to go to Lauterbrunnen and walk there, then you go through the inside and hike a little. But not difficult at all!
