Are there any newspapers/websites that write in Swiss German?

I know it is argued there is no written Swiss German, but there is bible translated to Bernese, for example. So I'm looking for written material of any kind, the more the better. Please note I'm looking for "real" Swiss German, i.e. those who write the way they sing: https://www.songtexte.com/songtext/p...-6bdb7a26.html

"Dr chly Prinz", 'le Petit Prince' has been translated to Bernese Dialect and yours truly blogs in Bernese dialect..... tho' just booooring cookery stuff


BTW, Polo Hofer is my hero.... seen him and his various bands at least 25 times.
Just google berndeutsche Bücher and you'll get a ton of links

Ohh, just remembered....check out Lorenz Pauli, his rhymes are super cute

"E chlyni Chueh mit Wanderschueh" or "i kenne öpper wo..."


And to all those who say, Swissgerman has no grammar when written..... well the Bernese do!! May I kindly point to Werner Marti's oeuvre, who wrote books about Bärner Grammatik!

I actually, when writing dialect I pay heed to those rules!

Then there are also the books of Rudolf von Tavel I'd recommnend, quite old fashioned Bernese dialect. I love them all
