It's time for Fasnacht!

A great way for newbies to see the city of Bern at its livliest, and for everyone else to get out and about, drink and be just a little madder than usual.
Dress warmly, and be prepared to do some walking, dancing in the streets, and of course, for those inclined, drinking.

So calling all residents in Bern and everyone around Bern! Lets go and have some fun.

Time: 8.30pm
The 11th of March is a Friday.
RSVP'd Yes: 12 (6 members and 6 guests)
  • nicole89m
  • Bumble-Bee + 1 guest - which day and time?
  • domination87
  • graham + 5 guests - I have to meet friends at Schmiedstube at 7 pm, and we meet again at 10 pm at Zunft zu Webern. Food and drinks. We should publish our handy numbers.
  • chill_lee - Yes :)
  • Starbug - www.markthalle-bern.ch has a map for all those who do not know where the Markthalle is. I will at the upstairs bar, have short blonde hair and will be carrying a red bag. I will also have a sign of some sort. My mobile is 078 619 71 23 if anyone needs ...
RSVP'd Maybe: 3 (3 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 2

Re: Berner Fasnacht

Fasnacht does not start to get interesting until it is dark, so meeting up too early is not a good idea, unless everyone wants to go for dinner first. I would suggest meeting at 8.30-9pm and heading down to the Zytglogge area where everything happens anyway.

Re: Berner Fasnacht

I would love to come, but I would have to know that there will be some people staying up until the early hours in the morning so I'm not alone! Is anyone that much of a party animal? It's either that, or I leave really early. Pain in the bum!

To answer everyones questions at once. I can't really say what the general age group is but usually not much below 30. It depends on who shows up and it doesn't actually matter, how old people are.
The meeting point is the Markthalle, at the main bar upstairs. I will be there before 8, and I will be drawing a sign today, with ENGLISH FORUM written on it, as it is Fasnacht I doubt the Bernese will find this odd. I also have short blonde hair and will be carrying a red bag. My mobile number is 078 619 71 23 so please call me if you can't find the Markthalle, me or my sign.
How late the event goes on to really depends on the people who are coming. And Graham - shall we meet up with your group later? Call me so we know where you'll be.

Hi!! Glad you can come. I've included my number in the other post, but to be safe, 078 619 71 23. Do you know where the Markthalle is? Otherwise I can meet you in the main hall at the railway station, otherwise,

www.markthalle-bern.ch has a map.

Hoping we will be meeting up on a regular basis, I think at least 3 times a month would be nice goal, but I've tried that before and organising everything on my own turned out to be a little difficult! I can't really say who is in the Bern crowd now, it used to be more of the 30+ age range, but that was a year ago, and things have probably changed. Anyway, I hope you can make it to one of the events, if not this one. I live close to Interlaken perhaps we can organise a meet for the people who live around Thun and Spiez?

No age is not important...if it was none of us would ever go out. Where do you live in Bern? If you walk from the Loeb (the big store on the corner as you come out of the railway station, near the church) in the direction of Hirschengraben ie opposite direction to the old city, it is just up the sidewalk, practically next to a shoe store and an opticians. But yes, give me a buzz, I'll be there early.

Re: Berner Fasnacht

Hi, we can SMS each other in the evening and try to meet up at the Zunft zu Webere at 10 pm, in Gerechtigkeitsgasse 68 at the lower end of the Old City. It is great inside, sometimes even dancing, perhaps music upstairs, but probably no room. It will be impossible to hear the phone!
Probably I wear "The Scream" mask at least to hide my balding head: http://unrealitymag.com/wp-content/u...2/scream-2.jpg
