Rhine Cruise – the mountains.

We were nearer the windows on the way back. After leaving Lucerne we drove through the Bernese Oberland.

We stopped and ate our packed lunch then boarded a train to travel up to the mountains. inside train

It was hard to take photographs of this journey because of the movement and where we were sitting but I include a few snaps. view 1 going up

Eventually we arrived at the Alpen Garden and got out and looked around. sign

It was obviously designed for everyone, including families. model flowerI managed to stop and photograph a few flowers as we wandered around. It was about 2000m above sea level so the air was a bit thin.

There was mostly just one track with passing places.

We then boarded our coach to return to the ship.
