The Aar River courses through Bern, Switzerland
Bern, Switzerland was founded on the Aar River in 1191 and probably would not have risen to prominence, including its designation as the capital of Switzerland (since 1848) if not for its location on the Aar River. The river is the lifeblood of Bern and adds great contrast to the medieval buildings that make up the historic area.
One day I spent the better of a day walking both sides of the river. From areas where the walk was through the historic area to park trails were slightly steep, there’s enough variety to keep everyone’s attention.
These photos did not require any post processing and are posted as captured. Hard to believe that the water is this color, huh?
