An Afternoon in Berne

Berne Cathedral in the distance

Back in February Alessio and I went for an afternoon to Berne, the main reason was to visit the Natural History Museum. It was a nice museum Alessio enjoyed seeing the animals, it did not take long to see all the exhibitions, then we wondered around parts of the city. It had been ages since we had seen the bears, so we headed in that direction. Sadly the bears were not at home (so to speak), but crossing the Nydeggbrücke which takes you to the bear pit you get wonderful views of Berne, the river Aare and rooftops.

The old historic part of Berne is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, its narrow streets, lovely fountains and buildings definitely make this city well worth visiting again and again. I would love to see the Paul Klee Centre and take Alessio to the Animal park Dählhölzli, so I will be going back again.
