  Waterplay in front of the Bundeshaus
by mabu

Berne has got a new attraction!!!

With the renovation of the Bundesplatz a water fountain was installed. Before the renovation this square in front of the parliment building (Bundeshaus) was used as a carpark. Now it belongs to the public.

The water is squirted out of 26 Jets wich are in the floor. Each of the 26 Jets represent a canton of switzerland.
The waterplay starts every half hour until 11pm and goes about 18 minutes.

During the recent hot days there were lots of kids playing in the water getting soaked....
In the evening the fountains are lightened and look great! A musst see!

See my travellogue for some extra pictures!
