The hiking tour from Schwarzenburg to Thörishaus is a tour of scenic contrasts. The views from the high plateau to the Alpine chain are breathtaking. Especially impressive are the views from the church hill at Wahlern. Totally different are the impressions of the deep canyons of the Schwarzwasser and Sense Rivers, which are largely protected areas.

Mandelbärli: a Bern classic

Bern's emblem, the bear, also features in the city's cuisine. For decades, the Bernese have enjoyed Mandelbärli ("almond teddy bears") made from almonds, sugar, butter and egg white, from the confectioner Beck Glatz. They were inspired by the bear dance portrayed on the bell, cast in 1596, of the Holy Spirit Church. Flavours include chocolate, honey and lemon, as well as the classic vanilla.

St. Galler Kalbsbratwurst: no. 1

This famous veal sausage from St. Gallen is the clear favourite at barbecues, fêtes and other festivals throughout Switzerland: Swiss National Day (1 August) would not be complete without it. In 2007 it was awarded IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée, Protected Geographical Indication) status, of which the St. Gallen butchers are proud. Only the finest veal, a little bacon and fresh milk may be used as ingredients. The Swiss prefer their favourite sausage served crisp and brown from the grill, accompanied by a crunchy Bürli roll.
