Re: Easter Weekend Plans?

Visit Bern. See the bears, basement shops on the main strip, clocks, Einsteins residence, architecture and the mountains.

Eat rösti and raclette. Have a beer.

Surprisingly there are no tourists there this time of year.

Enjoy a rainy weekend in Bern.

Re: Easter Weekend Plans?

Staying here.
Fish dinner planned in a local restaurant Friday.

Sunday visiting family in Kreuzlingen; seems I have been delegated to cook my ill-famed smoked salmon, prawn, cream sauce pasta.

A couple of years ago I attended the Art Paris Art Fair in the Grand Palais Paris at Easter. I got an invite for this year (last weekend) but even though the TGV makes it easy I did not fancy the journey.

Glad not to be travelling.

Re: Easter Weekend Plans?

For anyone planning on going to Ticino for Easter, be aware that, as is the tradition, it will be raining!

Re: Easter Weekend Plans?

Alas, it's traditional that the Zucchini bring the rain with them.

And meteoswiss.ch confirms it.

Aren't the bears in a zoo somewhere because of renovations of their usual quarters?

Re: Easter Weekend Plans?

http://www.blick.ch/news/schweiz/tes...id3632517.html

Just for the record, there were record delays this Easter weekend. Despite the poor weather, there were record traffic jams, (please use Google translate),

Mit 14 Kilometern wurde im Verlauf des Freitags dann der Wochenrekord gebrochen. Kumuliert entsprach dies 45,5 Staustunden – zwei Stunden mehr als vor den Ostertagen im vergangenen Jahr.

Mehr Geduld als die Autofahrer vor dem Gotthard brauchten heute allerdings diejenigen, die über die Ausweichroute via San Bernardino reisten. Vor dem San-Bernardino-Tunnel staute sich der Verkehr Nachmittag auf bis zu 15 Kilometern, wie die Bündner Kantonspolizei mitteilt. Schnee bis in die tiefen Lagen erschwerte die Fahrt und führte zu zahlreichen Unfällen.
