I think I saved the best til last.
Walking from the station I was surrounded by mountainted, including the Eiger
Absolutely breathtaking. The hotel is one of the best as well. I have tried to stay in hotels within a 15 min walk from the station in the mid-budget range, around £60 (this is quite tricky in Switzerland! ! ). This one has a south facing balcony : if only I were here for more than one night!
