View from Faulhorn onto Scharzhorn and Wildgärst.

The Schwarzhorn is a mountain of the Bernese Alps, located between Brienz and Grindelwald in the Bernese Oberland. With a height of 2,928 metres above sea level, it is the highest summit of the group north of the Grosse Scheidegg Pass. The Schwarzhorn is also the highest point in the municipality of Brienz.

A small glacier named Blau Gletscherli lies on the north side of the mountain.

The Schwarzhorn is regarded as one of the most stunning look-out peaks in the Bernese Oberland. Its summit can be accessed by a trail on the southern ridge.

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.

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.

Pine forest.

Pinus cembra, also known as Swiss pine, Swiss stone pine or Arolla pine, is a species of pine tree that grows in the Alps and Carpathian Mountains of central Europe, in Poland (Tatra Mountains), Switzerland, France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Slovakia (Tatra Mountains), Ukraine and Romania. It typically grows at 1,200 metres to 2,300 metres altitude. It often reaches the alpine tree line in this area. The mature size is typically between 25 metres and 35 metres in height, and the trunk diameter can be up to 1.5 metres.

Beds and furniture made of Pinus cembra are very popular within the Alpine region of Europe as scientific studies of Joanneum Research in 2003 have shown that exposure to a Swiss Stone Pine can improve sleep by saving you up to 3,500 heart beats per night making nights more restful and restorative. 

The Swiss pine is a popular ornamental tree in parks and large gardens, giving steady though not fast growth on a wide range of sites where the climate is cold. It is very tolerant of severe winter cold, hardy down to at least −50 °C, and also of wind exposure. The seeds are also harvested and sold as pine nuts and can be used to flavor schnapps.
