Full description
This tour takes you through the oldest district of Berne: the Mattequartier. Located along the banks of the Aare, today it has grown into a stately and almost independent village. The modern connection to the upper town is the steepest tram line in the world, affectionately referred to by the Bernese as the "lace tramp".

Let yourself be taken to the "black" quarters via stairs and heaps, past the former shipping ports, and experience on this exciting tour what connects the mat with the words Casanova, chocolate, gold.

You will also learn more about matte-english - the language of this district.
