Views from the Münsterpark

This tryptych is a left-to-right panorama from the Münsterpark (cathedral park)

The house with the garden is where world political leaders will stay during state visits to the Swiss parliament.

Looking down the slopes, we see the Mattequartier, badly flooded in summer 2005 when the River Aare burst its banks.

And fully to the right, you see the River Aare basin and a cool lift that rises about 50m from the Matte-Quartier" to the Münsterpark. There is an atmospheric covered wooden staircase for those who prefer the climb!
