A village without tradition and culture is like a bird without wings. Our resorts Grindelwald, Wengen, Mürren, Lauterbrunnen and Haslital luckily have wings – wings which are firmly rooted in the past. A region with a lot of traditions. This is quickly visible on a walk around each village. Fascinating.
A namesake from the world of sorcery.
Grindelwald. The name is well known. In Switzerland at least, the first thing that comes to mind is the Eiger Village. But be careful: it’s easy to get confused because the village now has the same name as a wizard.
«The Final Problem» as a godsend.
The Final Problem», the last story in the anthology «The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes», appears in the December edition of «The Strand». That sounds good. But: At the beginning of the story there's an illustration of Sherlock Holmes and professor Moriarty. Both are entangled in a lethal hug next to the Reichenbach Waterfall.
