Bern, Switzerland.

It was our final day in Switzerland. We had nothing particular to do, so we all decided to visit Bern. It was a 30 minutes drive from Interlaken. The weather was really hot that day, we can see teenagers in their summer getup and bikinis. Most probably everyone’s going for a tan.

This is a stretch of shop. Fashionable boutiques, exclusive jewelers, antique dealers and traditional markets. Everything is within easy reach, on foot and also under the cover of the arcades.

The clock tower is called the Zytglogge tower, Built in the early 13th century, it has served the city as guard tower, prison, clock tower, centre of urban life and civic memorial.

This is the Berner Münster church, It’s situated beside the Bern’s famous clock, Zytglogge tower. Seemingly under renovation/construction when we were visiting.
