View from Kleine Schanze

That's the classic Alps view of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, taken in the Kleine Schanze park just beside the Swiss parliament.

Coincidentally I took an almost identical picture at the same place, same time, last year, click here to take a look.

180° panorama over Bern

This is the view over Bern and the River Aare from the Muristalden, or the "Muri hill", a steep road which in the old days was the main route to the village of Muri.

It has been mooted that the park will one day be transformed into a roaming area for the symbols of Bern, the bears. At present the bears are kept in an ugly and insufficient stone pit close by.
