UNESCO World Heritage Site Bern

I thought it’s time for a new post, because some complained about my silence on the blog, especially that I have awaiting material.  So, let’s get a taste of Bern, which is the federal capital of Switzerland since 1848.  The old town of Bern is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the city worths a stroll  due to the medieval treasure.

Bern is surrounded by Switzerland’s longest river, the Aare, which has a beautiful turquoise color and  is taking you on a scenic float trip from the medieval city of Thun to Bern.  I expected Bern to be more more full of life, considering that is the capital, but rather Zurich or Basel is like that, but of course it is always nice to explore new places.

How to visit 3 countries at once?

Head to the northwestern part of Switzerland to Basel, the “Dreiländereck” of Switzerland, Germany and FranceBasel is the cultural capital of Switzerland having 40 museums and many events such as Baselworld, which is a Watch and Jewellery trade show of the international industry.

Most of the city’s sights are concentrated in the Old Town with narrow medieval of friendly and approachable locals.

A big attraction for tourists is the Rathaus, an impressive 500 year old sandstone building painted in…RED! Also, the modern architecture worth a wonder.

There are numerous restaurants serving most common types of ethnic cuisine (Indian, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, etc.). We had a mouth-watering pizza at Molino Pizza, which is located on Steinenvorstadt, a street with various dinning opportunities. The prices are similar to  Zurich: a pizza can vary from 18-25 euros and a beer 7-10 euros.

We simply loved the Basel vibes as we participated to Fashnacht by mistake, sun was shining and parking was cheaper on Sunday.
