THE SLEEPY VILLAGE OF
We are all aware of the remarkable natural beauty of the Swiss Alps. But not many people have heard of the mountainside Swiss village of Gimmelwald which is almost like a little slice of heaven.
This remote little village is hidden away in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland and sits at an altitude of 4,500 feet (1,371 m). There are hardly any modern vehicles to be found on the streets of this traffic-free town that has a population of fewer than 150 people.
The sleepy village is just the perfect place for those seeking some quiet time. Not much happens here – you won’t find great tourist attractions or glitzy restaurants. Instead, you will come across many cozy timber homes that line the streets.
It is the ideal location to simply spend some time gazing at the mountains and the clouds or soak in the natural greenery that is sure to invigorate your senses.
