230. Switzerland summer: Engelberg

The village is characterised by the imposing monastery and the collegiate church. The Mountain of Angels as the founders of the Benedictine monastery called the place in 1120 is a popular excursion destination for people travelling from nearby Lucerne: the journey to Engelberg by road or narrow-gauge railway can take as little as one hour.

As you see in the shots, it was a ‘cool’ summer! :)

      Yes, these are really quite nice. I love photographing Switzerland. Difficult to take a bad picture there with all that beautiful scenery.
