    Nice page, interesting tips and photos. I visit recently this lovely City, but I stay very short. Thank you for reminding me!

    Thanks for the great memories! I lived in Bern for three years and had that view of the Alps from my apartment!

    Extremely well done and nice site. I have just joined VT but will be visiting Bern in October. Any thoughts on how some one can dine inexpensively in Bern? Again thank you for this and your other Swiss sites.

    Das System mit den Einkaufs-Arkaden ist total perfect gemacht in Bern und das gibt es meines Wissens in dieser totalen Art sonst nirgendwo !

    Michael I have learnt that to save time when researching a city I want to visit, that the best thing is to look for your pages. Your Bern page has told me everything I need to know when I visit in August. thank you.

    Excellent page, Michael! Switzerland is still a green spot on my map of Europe. Your page makes me dream to paint it in blue someday, haha!

    Great page about our Swiss capital! Should visit more ofte this place as Valais is only 1h30 far away by train thanks to the Lötschberg tunnel. Thanks for the tips!

    You must have had a good haze filter for your lead photo -- or was it an unusually clear day? I lived in Bern for a year but never climbed the Münster tower, always thinking I could do it some other time. Thanks for including the Mani Matter links.
