We leave quite early from Colmar towards Interlaken. The goal of the day is to visit « Harder Kulm » which is a viewpoint at 1,322 meters offering a sumptuous view of the mountains and lakes. A read postcard of Swiss nature.
In order to be able to drive on Swiss highways, you will have to buy a € 40 sticker that you need to stick on the windshield. These « vignettes » are available in highways rest areas when you enter Switzerland and are valid for 16 months : From November to February.
On our way to « Interlaken » we make a stop at the city of « Thun ».
It is a very beautiful city crossed by the canals of « Lake Thun ». We made a tour of the city in 2 hours and continue our journey to “Interlaken”.
Even though it was July, the weather was not summery and the city of « Interlaken » was covered with clouds. After reflection, we abandon our goal of climbing to the top of “Harder Kulm”. The view from the heights is corrupted by the clouds.
It is a big disappointment, but we still can enjoy the exceptional landscapes of Switzerland. Interlaken is perfectly located between 2 lakes and mountains.
We follow the coast of « Lake Brienz » before resuming our journey towards the Italian border.
We arrive at our second accommodation of the trip. It is located on the edge of the Como lake in the village of « Menaggio »
