Three prominent Bernese write with fondness and frowns about their home town, its many moods, and what makes living in this medieval city so special today. With 175 photographs and illustrations. Berne is a city rich in contrasts: a modern capital with medieval landmarks, colourful, quaint, a little quirky - quietly international yet cosily 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 easygoing charm. There's a lot more to Berne than it's clock towers, shopping arcades, bear pits and houses of parliament. Discover why Berne is a whole way of life. This lovely Book in a limited English edition will be treasured by residents and visitors to Berne.
