Bern Bahnhof
Bern was founded in 1191 and considered to be a true gem of medieval architecture in Europe.
With its sandstone and limestone buildings, medieval arcades, Renaissance fountains with colorful figures, and beautiful original cityscape made it 
a "World Heritage" town.
Piper's Fountain
Spitalgasse (gasse=street)
Pravet now has a nickname - Jam Man - for he tries to be in every picutre I took!
Seen in background is the Prison Tower.

This bouquet is for everyone who visits my site.
This is now Marktgasse.

Clock Tower square.
Zeitglockenturm or Clock Tower, is as much the symbol of Bern as the bear.
Below the main east face of the clock is an intricate astronomical and astrological device.

What draws people here is a little display of mechanical figures - which is set into motion four minutes before every hour on the clock’s east face.
The bell is chimed every hour.
Notice the distance of the hammer from the bell.
Coronado hotel in Zurich.
It's about 10-15 min. ride from Zurich Hauptbahnhof.
Tram and bus stops are right across the hotel.
