My Europe Trip 2010 – Switzerland



Located at five-thousand feet above sea level, Murren is popular during summer and winter with tourism and winter sports playing an important part in their local economy. Hostels are aplenty here with 2500 beds in total, a huge contrast to their low 450 population.


The view outside the Murren Station.


We had our lunch at a cafe next to the large sports center. This was my first time having Currywurst and I got hooked to it immediately. Who would have expected that sliced hot dog with ketchup and curry powder could get along so well together? Well, the Germans did.
Currywurst was quite addictive for me and I am sure it will be a hit in Malaysia if someone is able to reproduce the taste. After this whenever I saw Currywurst being sold I had the urge to eat it, lol.


The Cheese and Ham sandwich was good too. You gotta eat to have enough energy for the one hour hike yo.





Snow-capped mountains, waterfalls, hills full of dandelions and wild flowers, farms and free roaming cows accompany you as you walk along Niedenmatten, the main road leading to Gimmelwald from Murren.

  1. i’m going to switzerland to study soon! but my school is at leysin, near to montreux, the french speaking side of switzerland. you made me wanna go to the german side ( zurich and all ) for a trip after reading this post. stunning pictures ! =)

    • I think so, my friend who went to New Zealand and Switzerland said that although NZ has a more beautiful landscape, it is not as diverse as Switzerland

  2. I am thoroughly enjoying your pics. Very breath taking. Yeah, to be fully enjoying one’s vacation, I’d rather stick to fewer destinations but instead spending my time leisurely soaking in the environment.
    .-= J2Kfm´s last blog ..Pasta House @ Ipoh =-.

  3. Hi, We are planning a trip to Swiss soon. How many days do you think would be sufficient to spend from Geneva-Montreux-Zermatt-Interlaken-Lucern-Zurich? Any other tips?

    • Honestly I cannot advise you on anything. But from your itinerary you would need like at least more than 1 week to have a proper vacation.
      Interlaken alone I think you could spend 3 days and 2 days for Zurich

  4. Hi there, i am planning for a visit to Switzerland but is at lost as to what apparel to pack. Did you wear hiking boots for the hike? Or normal sneakers will do?

  5. Hi Vkeong, how much did you spent in this Swiss trip?
    and how you went Swiss from Malaysia?
    Coz I have to plan a trip to Swiss too :D

    • Hi Rain
      Swiss was part of my stop when we toured Europe. I went there by train from Paris. Anyway it happened so long ago so I don’t really remember how much I spent just for Swiss alone. But for my entire 1 month trip I spent about RM15k inclusive of everything (flights as well)
