Einsiedeln is a wonderful village in the Swiss Kanton of Schwyz, and home to the world famous Kloster Einsiedeln, a Benedictine Abbey that dates back to the middle ages – unbelievably, the middle ninth century!

Here’s a wonderful snap of the town of Einselden, looking down from the abbey:

Normally on a beautiful day like this day the whole village would be crowded. It’s quite empty, because I hazarded a trip here during the height of the Covid-19 outbreak in Switzerland.
