    The area we live in is called the Berner Oberland (Bernese Alps) - very famous high mountains (Eiger, Jungfrau...), nice for hiking. The Jungfrau cog railway goes to the Jungfrau railway station, the highest in Europe. The area with it's high mountains and lakes is also a perfect place for paragliding, base jumping (if you're mad), sailing and other watersports in Summer and skiing in Winter.
