Bern is booked!

Jump to last reply

My excitement level soars and no family members are travelers, so they don't get it!

Booked a vacation apt in Altstadt Bern for 8 nights this October.
Traveling alone, and have been to Germany or Switzerland 12 or 13 x so far. Able to read and speak (with hesitation) Hoch Deutsch. (Understanding Schwyzerdutsch remains an enigma) !

Plan to further leisurely explore Bern over 2-3 days ("new" Bearpits, travel up to Gurten and hike back down, shops, Muenster, thrice-weekly markets, maybe a musum). I have visited Bern twice previously, but only on all-day-long daytrips. I want to meander the cobble alleyways in the evening.

Other day plans:
Solothurn
Luzern Fall festival
Niesen Kulm (no solo hiking, just viewing and lunch)
Undecided on Fribourg or Neuchatel...and have left my other research at home. It is actually too late for any of MY desired boat trips, say between Murten and Fribourg (after October 7).

Any additional suggestions for those familiar with area much appreciated.
(No Gruyere or Broc as too far).
