By: Bernhard Giger, Walter Dapp, Peter KrebsHow can you explain the charm and originality of Berne and the Bernese? If you've ever tried to do this in English, you'll realize how special this book is. Berne is a city rich in contrasts: a modern capital with medieval landmarks, colorful, quaint, a little quirky - quietly international yet cozily local. Three prominent Bernese writers (a journalist, a film-maker and newspaper editor) share their personal perspectives, highlighting a wide range of subjects from history to the lively rock scene. Peter Studer's magnificent photographs portray the city's many moods, capturing the expected and the unexpected and Berne's easy-going charm. There's a lot more to Berne than its clock towers, shopping arcades, bear pits and houses of parliament. Discover why Berne is a whole way of life.
