04 Sep The mystical Aare gorge, Switzerland
Have you been to the Swiss mountains? Yes, ofcourse. Have you swim in one of the beautiful Swiss lakes? Yes,many times. Have you visit the museums? I think to one or so. Have you seen the tallest Swiss waterfalls? Yes, beautiful!
So now what? How about strolling alongside some of the many Swiss gorges?
This particular gorge, Aare gorge in Meirigen, can be admired from a 1.4km long walkpath, a pleasant walk along the river, in and out of tunnels, looking down at the milky water below.
The gorge has to two entrances but in my opinion it doesn’t matter from what end you start. From one entrance to another takes about 40 min. The walk is stroller friendly but be aware of the very few stairs at some parts of the path. You can easily lift up the stroller but have in mind that the walkway is quite small so at the end it is not very convenient when there are much people.
This place is an exellent way to escape the summer heat for a moment as it can get quite chilly deeper in the gorge and in the tunnels. So bring something to put over your shoulders just incase!
If the color of the river is milky shifting between white and grey then the river has a lot of minerals/limestone particles in it. But when the river is blue-green,the water of the river has more algues.
I was hoping to walk further but unfortunally the walk was quite short but very mysterious and beautiful!
Have you guys explored some of the many Swiss gorges?
