Berne is ranked among the world’s top ten cities for the best quality of life
The train from Zurich to Berne provided the most amazing vistas and we knew we were in for a delightful treat…
The festive May Pole in the Munster…….
Thanks to 6 kilometers (4 miles) of arcades, the old town boasts one of the longest covered shopping promenades in Europe….oh yes we walked them all….several times…..
There are eleven Renaissance allegorical statues on public fountains in the Old Town.
One of the more interesting fountains is the Kindlifresserbrunnen or Child Eater Fountain
All along the street, each building has a set of Cellar Doors….
These are actually the entrances to cafes, shops and clubs…..under each establishment is another one!!
Every corner we turned held another beautiful view….
Have you noticed that it is very quiet in the town??
Well we chose the perfect time to visit Berne….there was a giant Family Expo being held….
We had the entire town to ourselves! Marvelous!
We fell in love with all the beautiful fountains and statues throughout the town…..
Berne is just enchanting……
The fresh crisp air off the snow covered Alps was just divine…..
……..We were ready for some great Swiss Food….
We found the wonderful Ringgenberg with a beautiful patio for al fresco dining…
Oh what delights awaited our palates…..
Cream of Asparagus Soup with Mushrooms topped with Asparagus and Delightful Tiny Pancakes…
….of course since we are in Switzerland, the Cappuccino is topped with Marvelous Chocolate….
