As one of the most expensive European countries, Switzerland is often skipped over by many budget travellers. But that being said, Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places on earth – its home to lakes, picturesque mountains, tiny walled medieval towns, soaring peaks, beautiful churches, and endless green fields you want to run through. Everything view is so picturesque that you start assuming if the world here is absolutely painting-like. The chocolates are amazing, the country is safe, and everyone is super nice. The country rocks no matter what time of the year you visit.

I visited a small, quaint, relaxing, and full of adventure town – Brienz. It is located in the middle of charming mountains at the eastern end of turquoise-coloured Lake Brienz. The cosy village is starting point for excursions to the Bernese Oberland and also to Lucerne, Interlaken or across the nearby Alpine passes.
