Switzerland: Lauterbrunnen

Plein Air Workshop

September 13 – 27, 2020

Join Eric and his wife Ann in the majestic mountainscape of Switzerland!
We will stay in Lauterbrunnen, a quiet village surrounded by rocky cliffs and 72 gorgeous waterfalls! 

Situated in the heart of the Swiss Alps, we will enjoy the natural beauty around us: travelling to neighboring towns Gimmelwald and Murren by train and taking the cable car to the mountain tops for astounding views – perfect for plein air painting!
