... distance in a straight line from Interlaken because it went up the mountain at such a steep incline and very slowly. The scenery along the way when we weren't going through a tunnel was spectacular and the little towns were perched on the sides of the mountains and in the valleys.

The city was very beautiful and very small, as you will see. The picture of the doorway that reads "Einstein Haus" is the old entrance to Albert Einstein's house from 1903-1905.
