The house on the rock

Explore Switzerland...

...step by step


A "postcard" from my beloved homeland of Switzerland for all my dear friends. I hope you like it and it brings joy to your heart.


"It seemed pointless to ever dream of the distant wonders, I wanted to experience them."


"Demanding and uplifting at the same time, hardly anything in nature inspires as much awe as the sight of mountains."


"All people will make the perceptions, that on high mountains, where the air is pure and thin, breathes more freely and feels physically lighter and mentally happier."


"The secret of getting ahead is to take the first step."


The story behind the picture:

My eldest son and I set out early in the morning for a distinctive location in the Swiss Alps. Jonah was up there in his military mission and was enthusiastic about the mountains. Once there we could only marvel at the steep rock faces and the magnificent view. We could look from there up to Germany. Most impressive was this house on the rocks. What a work! How much work is behind it? After all, this wooden house stands on a rock and in a rugged mountain landscape, which can be dangerous. We enjoyed this sight and hiked from there to a lower mountain lake, which you will might see later on my page. Hope so. By the way, my son is in the photo. No, no, not the man with the red backpack who climbs up the stairs tiredly. No, mine is the one who picks him up. Ha, ha....

(How small man yet appears in this unique mountain world.)
