This year was not about big hikes but filled with countless walks in the surroundings of my new place of living.
Mainly, in search of nature, forests, rivers and viewpoints, I discovered many places and found some peaceful spots.
- Rivers: Regularly upstream and downstream river Aare and along the river Sense.
- Trees and forests: From the botanical garden to Elfenau I found beautiful old trees, crossed forests of Gurten, Bantiger and Ulmizberg.
- Best viewpoints in and around Bern: Münster (incl. Münsterplatform), Kleine Schanze, Bundeshausterrasse, Kornhausbrücke, Rosengarten, Gurten, Bantiger, Ulmizberg.
Today was one of the highlights, just started walking as if I would go up Gurten but then took the unknown roads and found myself on Ulmizberg with a stunning winter-sunset-view 🙂
On the way down on a small street while it was getting slowly dark and colder, a car stopped and a young man asked me whether he could take me somewhere. Yes! To the next public transport, that would be wonderful. And so I got a ride and a nice chat. Lucky me! Thank you dear driver! 🙂
