School’s out but the normal change from bustling metropolis to ghost town is unlikely to happen this summer. If you are staying in town there are plenty of places to visit for the day if you fancy getting out of Dodge. Last weekend i hiked up to the Murgsee and enjoyed the stunning scenery in that part of the world.
Now i could write a long and detailed description but the photos speak for themselves and in addition Swiss Mobility have a pretty accurate description (with maps,) of the hike here. There are two important things to remember though. Firstly, the start of the journey is not accessible by normal buses so you have to book a shuttle if you wish to use public transport. Secondly, it is a fair distance both up and across. If you were up partying the night before, (like i did,) it’s hard. Have fun and enjoy the clean mountain air.
