Got it


Kantonbern Map

Ah the faded Edwardian elegance of it all. Floating across the lake on an old paddle steamer to the Grandhotel Giessbach, being served by white coated waiters in the upper-deck first-class restaurant (alright so it was only two lagers and we didn't get off at the hotel - but one can dream).

Shame really, as it has some spectacular waterfalls in its grounds and one of the oldest funicular railways in Switzerland. Perhaps next time - preferably in better weather.
