photoblog image CH25: Coffee at Männlichen summit

CH25: Coffee at Männlichen summit

The top of the Männlichen has two cable car end stations; one from Wengen and the other from Grindelwald. At the top is this small playground. Had I been a kid, I would have run amok and therefore would not hesitate to recommend fences with child-proof locks. I did see a couple of kids like that, chasing and terrorizing a poor dog.


In the summer, overnight accommodation is available, I hear. Among other things, there was a restaurant, selling a lot of touristy things apart from food. We helped ourselves to hot coffee and left after being appropriately fortified.

I don't see kids, Ayush...have you had them herded off into a high-walled corral?
Ayush Basu: On some instances I do feel like doing it and not just the kids, Ray

Stunning shot Ayush! The angle makes it appear as if you are on top of the world smile
Ayush Basu: Locally speaking, I think you're right smile Thank you very much, Frances
Nice shot, Ayush! Wonderful to have something like this at the top to replenish you!
Ayush Basu: Was hard to tear myself from the views while sipping coffee, Elizabeth

Such a pity isn't it that this magnificent view isn't enough for the tourists. They couldn't resist the added attraction of a children's playground too
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Chris, for that observation. I guess it is the financial motivation.

Parents don't want to mind their children, it seems. But then, children can't be expected to grow up without scrapes, bruises and the occasional broken arm or leg.
A great place to be and after a hard climb I'll drink several beverages, starting with cold water, then coffee and then the rest.
Ayush Basu: Quite right you are, Louis. But it did make me really apprehensive what some kids were up to.
And I agree with your second comment too grin

It looks like you're on top of the world, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Around that vicinity, I certainly was Ginnie. Thank you very much
I would imagine you would need to keep a close eye on the kiddies in this playground, Ayush. Those cliffs look pretty dangerous.
Ayush Basu: Exactly Beverly!
Wonderful photosmile Greetings
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much!
Probably the most expensive coffee in Switzerand -)
Ayush Basu: Uhm, right after the ones served at Jungfrau and Schilthorn tongue
We seem being on top of the world Ayush!
Fine capture.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Richard
My younger daughter loved those springer animalsgrin
Ayush Basu: And now she must vacate them for Joseph grin
Beautiful images. Gorgeous mountains.
Greetings.

A good slogan could be - Your'e never too high for a coffee.
Ayush Basu: Very good Chad, I love it.

A splendid spot it is, too. Shame about the dog; served the kids right if it had turned and bitten them wink Chris makes a good point about the "theme park".
Ayush Basu: Actually it was a fairly large chocolate Labrador, I think, and I hear they have infinite patience. What a pity tongue
Yes, I agree with you and Chris. This place is complete with all the trappings of a luxury resort. Anything to get cash registers ringing, I suppose.

Ayush Basu: Things change certainly, for better or for worse that remains to be seen. Thank you very much Astrid
That duck gives the photo a nice touch.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I thought so too, with the cheerful smile.

Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Peter. I can assure you I feel the same way about your lakeside images
