Sunburn in Bern

On a beautiful sunny Saturday morning, we hopped on an SBB train for JK’s 37th birthday adventure and headed for Bern, Switzerland’s capital city. It is called the city of fountains. By walking all over, we saw the Bear Pits, the House & square of Parliament, the Town Hall, the Clock Tower - Zeitglocken Turm and the Käfigturm (Prison Tower). As it was scorching hot that day, we sought shade in the Englische Anlagen and found a nice cafe.

Tip: If the day is warm, wear a bathing suit and bring a dry bag. I would then suggest you jump in the River Aare near the Kirchenfeldbrücke and the Englische Anlagen and let the current bring you down the river to the Hornhausebrücke.
