To go to the centre of Bern it will take you only ten minutes by car or bus (next bus stop is just in front of our house) .
Bern is a beautiful city and placed on the UNESCO Worldheritage list! Switzerlands capital owes its charm to an intact mediaveal cityscape with surprisingly broad streets, more than 6 km of arcades, colourful sculptured Renaissance fountains, largely unimpaired sandstone facades and a unique rooftop landscape. Beside that it offers you a wide collection of culturel activities. There are a variety of outstanding museums (a new Klee museum will be opening his gates in summer 2005) , some theaters, a casino and our famous bear pit.
If you are interested in physics: the physicist Albert Einstein lived here for quiete a while and it was in Bern that he wrote his first treatise on the special theory of relativity. Since it's a jubilee there are a lot of special events in 2005.
In and around the city you will find many possibilities to do sport. There are tennis courts, free open air swimming pools, public golf courses and thermal baths to only tell a few of them.
An other advantage of our home is the central location in the middle of Switzerland. The next motorway exit is only two minutes away and you also can use our excellent train system which is very extensive and great fun (exspecially with kids) . Only 20 minutes from here is Thun, the gate to the Bernese Oberland. Famous touristic destinations like Grindelwald, Adelboden, Zweisimmen and many more offer you there all year around a breathtaking nature and a wide selection of outdoor sports and culturel activities. This region will just never fail to give you an idea of what to do in your leisure time. How about skiing in the Alps, excursions to the Jungfraujoch, diving or sailing in the mountain lakes. . .
To conclude, Switzerland is a small country. With train or car you are in a hour in the french speeking part of Switzerland in Genf or Montreux (and near the french border) in Zürich, Basel or Lucerne. Add a few more kilometers and you are in Lugano (Ticino) and in Italy or near the Grisons with its famous locations like St. Moritz, Davos or Arosa. There are almost endless possibilities. . .

The only ones who don't like to travel are our two norwegian forest cats. They will stay at home and look after the house. But since they are not yet able to open the fridge, we need somebody to feed them.
