the view of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Old city of Berne can be enjoyed particularly well from the Rose Garden. A breathtaking panoramic view of the medieval alleys and houses around the Bern cathedral, illuminated by Christmas lights. During the Advent season, the scent of gingerbread, roasted almonds and mulled wine is in the air and invites to visit the different Christmas Markets in the old town. 🎄🎆🌟 who are you taking with you?

FALL -ing in love with this view from Monte San Giorgio!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The stunning beauty of Monte San Giorgio’s countryside is reason enough to be listed as UNESCO World Heritage property. Its uniqueness, however, stems from its hidden treasure – fossils dating back 240 million years.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
