I took German in high school and college, so it was fun to see how much I remembered. Bern is a German speaking town with cobblestone streets, cute shops, beautiful fountains, cafes, city squares and churches…. We could do a commercial for this place – that’s how much we enjoyed it even though it was chilly and raining. I bet it is magical during Christmas time. We walked along the streets, watched the huge clock strike on the hour – a golden statue of a man with a mallet hit a giant bell… so fun. When the sun started to come out, the city really came to life.
