World > Europe > Switzerland > Glarus > Talalpsee

Approximately one hour car ride from Zürich, the Talalpsee can be reached via a short chair lift ride and a short walk along a paved road set amongst the forest. I visited the alp lake in Autumn 2011, it was chilly time to visit but extraordinary as the colours of the Autumn forest brang forth a magical feeling. Somewhat surreal were the Traditional Swiss Alp horns echoeing through the valley as we descended down to the lake. Consider everything you could imagine the Swiss mountains to entail and you had it right there in this place.
