River Aare, Bern: 4 reviews and 3 photos
Fondest memory: Swimming in the River Aare. Not far from the youth hostel there are public baths where you can suit up and hit the river. The river is a gorgeous blue fed from the Alps with smooth rocks on the bottom. The current is wicked and you must be a good swimmer to go in. The current is so powerful that it sort of pushes you down the river vertically. It was like a giant jacuzzi. Felt great and truly refreshing on a hot day. Great way to wash those t-shirts that you've been wearing for a few days too many. If you can see those bars hanging in the middle of the river in the photo, they are for water-skiers to practice, it is one strong current!!
