AARE RIVER OF BERN

SWITZERLAND’S CAPITAL CITY, BERN IS KNOWN BY AARE RIVER RUNNING ALL AROUND WITH ITS CLUSTER OF BLUE AND GREEN COLOR, AND THE BRIDGES OVER IT THAT YOU WILL WITNESS THE SPECTACULAR BEAUTY OF IT. 

We see this in many puzzles: What is the name of four lettered river in Switzerland?  We’re going on a journey to the answer of this question, Aare River… We’re going to this spectacular river, which surrounds and shapes the capital city of the country.

Especially, if you have chance to watch the river on a sunny warm spring day, the gorgeous blue foliage and historic structures in the river will make you taste the pleasure that will totally satisfy your feelings more than you expected.

Switzerland, which is made up of 26 cantons, is a federation country.  In the Swiss capital, Bern, you will have a chance to watch the most beautiful view of the city from the highest hill located in the urban center of Aare river hillside, which overlooks the city’s cobbled streets, tram rails and medieval structures.

Bern’s meaning: Bear
In fact, Bern has become a city of bridges with the support of the Aare River.

If you go to the stone bridge of Bern, Nydeggbrück, which is next to the Bear Pit that is the symbol of the Aare River that curls around the city, you will clearly understand the meaning of Bern.  Also you will have a chance to watch the bears living there. The founder of the city Duke of Zeehrinden Berchtold, when he first hunted a bear for the first time, named the city Baer-Bern, in other words ‘bear’ and bears become a symbol of the city. You will have a chance to visit some cafes near the Bear Pit, eat and drink while enjoying the pleasure of watching the river as well as the city.

You will get rid of your stress and problems as the green nature surrounds you and blue sky covers you. And you will soak up a gorgeous brightness inside yourself and feel the peace.
