In this post, I wanted to do something different. This trip was so full of incredible moments and landscapes that I thought of dividing it into two parts, also thinking of making the reading lighter and facilitating my writing and revisions.

In the first part, I tell you about the morning in Interlaken, the city and the views from the side and mountains of the Alps. And in the second part, we will continue to the First Cliff Walk and the breathtaking landscapes.

So, Buckle up!

Checkpoints

Long story short: we were in Milan and decided to rent a car for an adventure towards Interlaken, crossing the border between Italy and Switzerland.

As we drove along the curvy roads in the early hours of the morning, we entered a very long tunnel.

After climbing the mountains and descending towards Interlaken, we stop at the highest point of the mountain range before starting the descent to Interlaken.

When we looked up, the sky was filled with billions of stars, each twinkling in different colors. I tried to capture this view with long exposure shots, but the real beauty lay beyond the lens. I felt like I was under a big tree, that was the feeling.

We arrived in the city almost at dawn while researching a little more about the city and what to do and we watched the sunrise. As soon as the first rays of light appeared, we went in search of that espresso doppio to wake up.

Interlaken is a city located at approximately 570 meters above sea level, nestled between two lakes called Lake Thun and Lake Brienz and surrounded by the famous mountains of the Swiss Alps, such as the Jungfrau, the Eiger and the Mönch.

We decided to go to a Natural Reserve and then visit the Golf Club in the region, on this way, we crossed incredible landscapes of a quiet town that seemed to be taken from inside a book. I have some movies to post too.

People flying paragliding, cows grazing along the way and their bells ringing and the architecture of the city and the houses caught my attention on this different morning.

Weissenau Nature Reserve

Our first stop was a trail that ran along the side of one of the lakes, offering views of the mountains in the background. At every step, breathtaking landscapes, with the lake to our left and the mountain range in the background.

Arriving at the Golf Club Strandhotel Neuhaus zum See, we started our brunch, the only problem was that I ordered a coffee and it came with a drip, coffee with milk. ok, i accept, but i need to improve my german. The rest was perfect.

With our energies recharged, we set out to explore the region.

Weissenau Castle

On the way back to the car, we went to visit the ruins of Weissenau Castle and it was really cool to be in a castle and imagine its history.

If you look at the photos, you would see the moon shining, adding a special aura to the moment.

While exploring the ruins and their fascinating history, we were surprised by another attraction in the skies.

Swiss Air Force fighters were tearing across the sky already at an incredible speed that sound took to arrive echoing through the mountains.

These moments, different from the tranquility of the place, reminded me of the crazy world we live in...

After the castle, we took the car to another part of the lake, where some people were posting their bikes and motorhomes, enjoying the relaxed vibe and the incredible view.

A perfect spot to stop for a snack and take pictures of the scenery.

Continuing our trip, we found a crystal clear river that cut our way towards the top of the mountains and we couldn't resist taking some water and refreshing ourselves to give that refreshment.

As we got closer to the mountains, we saw a cable car that would take us to the top. We decided to embark on this and, after a very smooth climb, we reached the summit.

The view from the top was breathtaking. We were high in the mountains, surrounded by snow capped peaks and breathtaking scenery. It was like being on top of the world...

Neste post, quis fazer algo diferente. Essa trip foi tão cheia de momentos e paisagens incríveis que pensei em dividir em duas partes. Pensando em tornar a leitura mais leve e facilitar minha escrita e revisões.

Na primeira parte, conto sobre a manhã em Interlaken, a cidade e as vistas do lado e das montanhas dos Alpes. E na segunda parte, vamos continuar até o passeio pelo First Cliff Walk e a paisagens de tirar o fôlego.

Então, Buckle up!

Checkpoints

História longa e curta: estávamos em Milão e decidimos alugar um carro para uma aventura rumo a Interlaken, cruzando a fronteira entre a Itália e a Suíça.

Enquanto dirigimos pelas estradas cheias de curvas nas primeiras horas da manhã, entramos em um túnel muito extenso.

Depois subindo as montanhas e descendo em direção a Interlaken, paramos no ponto mais alto da serra antes de iniciar a descida para Interlaken.

Quando olhamos para cima, o céu estava cheio de bilhões de estrelas, cada uma piscando em cores diferentes. Tentei capturar essa cena com fotos de longa exposição, mas a verdadeira beleza estava além das lentes. Me sentia de baixo de uma grande arvore, essa foi sensação.

Chegamos à cidade quase ao amanhecer enquanto pesquisava um pouco mais sobre a cidade e o que fazer e ficamos vendo nascer do sol. Assim que os primeiros raios de luz surgiram fomos em busca por aquele doppio espresso para despertar.

Interlaken é uma cidade situada a aproximadamente 570 metros de altitude, aninhada entre dois lagos chamados de Lago Thun e o Lago Brienz e cercada por montanhas famosas dos Alpes suíços, como a Jungfrau, a Eiger e a Mönch.

Decidimos ir ate uma Reserva Natural e depois conhecer o Golf Club da região, neste caminho, cruzamos com paisagem incríveis de uma cidade pacata parecia ser tirado de dentro de um livro. Tenho alguns filmes para postar também.

Pessoas voando de parapente, vacas pastando pelo caminho e seus sinos tocando e a arquitetura da cidade e das casas me chamaram muita atenção nesta manhã diferenciada.

Reserva Natural de Weissenau

Nossa primeira parada foi uma trilha que passava pelo lado de um dos lagos, oferecendo vistas das montanhas ao fundo. A cada passo, paisagens de tirar o fôlego, com o Lago à nossa esquerda e a cadeia de montanhas ao fundo.

Chegando no Golf Club Strandhotel Neuhaus zum See, começamos nosso brunch, unico problema que eu pedi um café e veio um pingado, café com leite. ok, aceito, mas preciso melhorar meu alemão. O resto estava perfeito.

Com as energias recarregadas, partimos para explorar a região.

Castelo de Weissenau

No retorno em direção ao carro, fomos visitar as ruínas do Castelo de Weissenau e foi muito legal estar em um castelo e imaginar sua história.

Se reparar nas fotos, ia ver a Lua brilhando, adicionando uma aura especial ao momento.

Enquanto exolorava as ruínas e sua história fascinante, fomos surpreendidos por outra atração nos céus.

Caças da Força Aérea Suíça atravessavam rasgando o céu já em velocidade incrível que som demorava para chegar ecoando pelas montanhas.

Esses momentos, diferentes da tranquilidade do local né lembrava do mundo louco em que vivemos...

Depois do castelo, pegamos o carro para uma outra região do lago, onde algumas pessoas estavam postando seus carros bikes e motorhomes, aproveitando a vibe tranquila e a vista incrível.

Um local perfeito para fazer uma pausa para um lanche e tirar fotos da paisagem.

Continuando nossa trip, encontramos um rio cristalino que cortava nosso caminho em direção ao alto das montanhas e não conseguimos resistir à em tomar um pouco da agua e nos refrescar para dar aquela revigorada.

À medida que iamos chegando perto das montanhas, vimos um teleférico que nos levaria ao topo. Decidimos embarcar nessa e, após uma subida bem tranquila, chegamos ao cume.

A vista lá de cima era de tirar o fôlego. Estávamos no alto das montanhas, cercados por picos cobertos de neve e paisagens de tirar o fôlego. Era como estar no topo do mundo....
