Lake Bachalp

Deep blue, smooth as glass and divided in two by a natural dike, pretty Lake Bachalp is set in a moorland habitat of national importance, framed by the snow-covered peaks of the Jungfrau massif.

This wonderfully picturesque spot is easily accessible from Grindelwald-First – and rewards visitors with superb views of the Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn and Finsteraarhorn.

Homberg

We planned to launch with our paragliders at Homberg and fly down to the city of Thun. Unfortunately there was too much wind (gusts over 30km/h). So we enjoyed the stunning view…

Homberg is a municipality in the administrative district of Thun in the canton of Bern in Switzerland.

Originally the small farming villages that make up Homberg were part of the Herrschaft of Heimberg under the House of Kyburg. After a failed raid on Solothurn on 11 November 1382 and the resulting Burgdorferkrieg, the Kyburgs lost most of their lands, including Homberg, to Bern in 1384. Under Bernese rule it was part of the Steffisburg court under the Thun District. Religiously it was part of the parish of Steffisburg until 1936 when it joined the Buchen parish.

Traditionally the farmers of the villages practiced seasonal alpine herding with limited farming on the high valley floor. During the 18th and 19th centuries there was a small pottery industry in the municipality. In the late 20th and into the 21st centuries many of the residents commuted to jobs in Thun, while many of the remainder worked in tourism.
