Untertorbrucke Bridge

Untertorbrucke Bridge

Old Bern is surrounded by many spectacular bridges, most of which soar high above the Aar River.  My favorite bridge is the 550 year old Untertorbrucke which is the small unimposing bridge just below the 170 year old  Nydegg Bridge.  [Note: cross the Nydegg Bridge to the Bern bear pits.]

Nearby is the Nydegg Church which was built in 1494.  But of course there is more to Bern than just bridges.  Old Bern is a World Heritage Site and there is plenty to look at.  From its 500 year old Clock Tower to Albert Einstein’s House. Check out my other Bern postings for more information.
