Friday on Kramgasse
A typical Friday afternoon at the quieter end of Bern's main thoroughfare.
At some point in history someone famous (perhaps Goethe?) called this street the most beautiful in the world. Well, at that time the world was a much smaller place than it is today, but there's no denying that there's nowhere else quite like it, and it is very cool in its own medieval way. Walking under the arches is almost like being in a time machine. A very unique and atmospheric street.
Here's a favourite photo of the same stretch on a very cold and quiet day.
