There are some nice sights to see like this view over the river.
Inside the city there is a big city park next to the River Aare. I had heard that floating down the river was a must-do in Bern. So while Natali rested in the park, I hiked up the river and took a plunge into the clear blue water. I had seen many of the little rivers that run off the mountains from the snow-pack that is still melting so I knew it would be chilly. The river was about six to seven feet deep all the way across and was running faster than I expected.
I enjoyed it so much that when I came back and saw that Natali was asleep, I decided to go up river even further and do it again. If you are ever in Bern in the summer, this is one thing that you definitely must do. The water may seem chilly at first but it is a great experience (Natali was taking a nap when I was in the river so all we have is a picture of other people floating in the river).
We also really wanted to see the Bern Temple so we headed over there. We should have planned our day better so we could have done a session there but we didn't even know if we would make it out to Bern until that day so we were sad that we couldn't go inside. The temple was very small and there was no fence around it. The neighborhood kids would just walk right through the temple ground to go to their friend's house.
