And we took the very winding, often narrow, looooooong-tunnelled route between Brienz and Brunnen, the home of the Victorinox museum and the heart of Swiss Knife Valley. The lure of assembling one’s very own, monogrammed original Swiss Army Knife was too great to stay away. We did need an appointment, which was easily made in English by phone the day before.
But Brunnen was more than just a knife museum. It also had a stunning view…
And, although not the most picturesque Swiss town we visited, it had an irresistible miniature golf course. We succumbed.
The statuary throughout this little course was amazing. Half of why I chose to play was just to get closer to the forms. It certainly wasn’t my high likelihood of dominating at this game. Ahem.
I think Brunnen is a great place to take kids. It was very engaging and kid-accessible. And we have wonderful souvenirs! I even have a pair of Victorinox steak knives now, just not with my name engraved.
