Bern, Mountains And A Chocolate Factory

2014/10/08 10

In 2012, I went around Switzerland and stopped by Bern, a Chocolate Factory and a traditional Swiss restaurant on the mountain, all in one day. Here are my photographs of the trip. 

Bern is a fourth largest city in Switzerland, and its historic old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. BernBern is a lovely historical city, but its atmosphere is not for me. If I could pick, a word that can describe Bern, I would choose melancholy or loneliness.  Bern Bern 3 Bern 4 bern 5 Bern 6 Bern 7 Bern 8 Bern 9 Bern 10 Bern 13 Bern 11 Bern 12Next, I drove to a Chocolate Factory. If you are going to be in Switzerland, give a chocolate factory a visit. I went to the Cailler Factory, and it was a very marvelous experience. You can go inside the Cailler Factory and buy a ticket to go on a tour. During the tour you will see the different types of cocoa beans the factory uses, and then you will see some stages of the production process, and you will be able to try many varieties of chocolates. Please keep in mind that I went in 2012, and something might have changed. I am sorry that I didn’t take any photos inside of the factory; I was too busy tasting delicious chocolates.Chocolate FactoryAfter the chocolate, I went and tried the famous Swiss Fondue. I heard that the best places to try traditional Swiss cheese fondues are in the mountains, and that’s exactly where I went. The taste of fondue was very interesting. It had a profound stinky smell at first, but then I got used to it and actually really liked it and will eat it again the next time I come to Switzerland. Let me know in the comments if you like the Cheese Fondue or not. Mountains Photo 19 Mountains Photo 20Thank you guys for reading!

    Beautiful photos! I have never tried cheese fondue (!) but I love baked Camenbert when it goes all melty so I imagine it’s similar to that?

      Hi Polly! I never baked Camembert so I would not exactly know how it tastes, but I think it’s kind of close. Except, In Switzerland they add a tiny bit of white wine to fondue. I think it’s possible to cook a cheese fondue at home and it’s going to taste just as good, maybe even better! Thank you for reading!

    Beautiful photos. I can see what you mean about getting that sense of loneliness from Bern. It does look a little dreary. I have never visited Switzerland but I hope to one day.

    You have taken many great photos here. I tried cheese fondue near Lucerne and it seemed good to me, although at the time I could have eaten anything I was so hungry.
