Schneckeninsel, Brienzersee

(In English, "Snail Island".) The source of the name of this private island on Lake Brienz is unknown; some say that it is due to the small size of the island – only a couple of hundred metres long, if that – whilst others say that monks used it as a snail farm in the mists of history.
