In a newsletter about "places to see in your region," we came across Kaiserstuhl AG: a small, charming village with a beautiful old town and a castle on the other side.
review of the year 2022
To get familiar with my new camera, we often took walks along the Reppisch to the Marmoriweiher.
I didn't like uploading individual pictures, but not showing the pictures at all is also not great. That's why there is now a review of the whole year!
One can hardly believe it, but Facebook pointed out to us that there are pumpkin exhibitions to be seen at the Jucker Farm. I took a closer look and that's how we decided to visit the artworks - and buy pumpkins.
We accidentally found out about the ArtWalk in Bremgarten - apparently this is already the sixth!
Anyway, we thought it was a cool idea, so we took my parents and walked from artwork to artwork through Bremgarten.
Above of Disentis you can find some quite cute waterwheels at the stream Clavaniev besides the small town Clavaniev. They are built from one of the villagers and were not promoted. Now, you can find them on Google if you search for "Wasserräder Clavaniev". If you are nearby, check them out - we think, it’s worth it!
The Swiss monastery Schönthal has a collection of art. Some is displayed inside the old church, others are arranged outside on the fields and in the woods. If you are not used to Switzerland’s up and downs, I reconstructed our path on geo.admin: 94 meters height difference. My six months of couch potato didn’t like it that much.
Regensberg is a small village near-ish our own home. We drove a few times through it, but never stopped to look at it.
Now, we finally did it! We drove to Regensberg to play tourist and stare at the castle and the historic view.
The Holzkorporation Dietikon celebrates their 175th anniversary. For this occasion, the forest on the Honeret and Guggenbühl was made available for an woody art exhibition. We walked most of the forest tour on the Honeret and admired the different masterpieces.
Park Seleger Moor
We visited Park Seleger Moor again and this time, everything was blooming in different colors, especially the rhododendrons caught our attention with their big bushes - very different from our last visit when we came much later in the year.
We were also in the mountains quite often this year - but I definitely forgot the camera at home too many times... Nevertheless, thanks to the pretty good iPhone camera and a few visits with the camera, there are also some pictures to admire this year.
The treetop walk has been on our list of places we would like to visit for a while. However, it's not easy to find a day in autumn when we have time and the sun is shining - the weather is a bit unpredictable.
We have one or two common buzzards here that fly close over our roof and whistle.
Usually, it ends with me trying to grab my camera in time. Finally, it worked because he took a break!
2. Oktober 2021
On Saturday we spontaneously decided to visit the Skulpturenweg (sculpture path) in Reinach again. Besides the beautiful sculptures, we also saw many great birds, including a kite sitting on a flagpole in the allotment gardens.
In late September, we took a short trip to the Skulpturenpark Steinmaur (a sculpture park). Here, various artists showcase their works.
September 18, 2021
This summer, one had to actively search for the sun... When it finally appeared in all its glory in the sky on September 18th, we decided to take a short trip to Bremgarten to stroll through the beautiful old town and along the Reuss.
path of the lores
On May 16th, we explored the Freiämter Sagenwegen near Waltenschwil for a few hours during "sunshine". It is a well-designed path with twelve different art installations, each representing a different legend. The text of the legend is displayed next to the artwork.
This year, I went to the mountains more often than usual to keep my great-aunt company - although the circumstances are sad, the visits were always a happy occasion.
Beautiful fall weather with colorful foliage and blue skies drew us to the banks of the Limmat.
While the walk was on the shorter side and the start along the highway a bit noisy, it was worth it and provided a lovely respite.
One year, four visits to Disentis and the surrounding area.
I love the Swiss Alps, and especially this area.
September 23 to 27, 2018
We have decided to take a long weekend as a "trial vacation" in Scotland to find out if we really like the country, and behold, we do! Even though Edinburgh can be a bit touristy...
November 16, 2014
What you discover when you have visitors and want to entertain them... That includes the Skulpturenweg Reinach sculpture path in the neighborhood!
Laupen and the Castle
27. Oktober 2013
A day trip to castle in Laupen was the plan, but it turned into more of a visit to the village with a stop at the castle.
The weather was also on the stormy side, but fortunately, we didn't get wet.
30. August 2013
Crazy day trip with my parents to France to visit the construction site "Guédelon".
Definitely interesting and highly recommended!
