Lots of steps to climb on a guided tour of Bern’s Matte district

Embark on a journey to the «black» district via steps and steep slopes, past the former wharf, and find out how these words Casanova, chocolate and gold are associated with the Matte.

Situated along the banks of the Aare River, the Matte today has become a stately and almost self-contained village. The modern link to the upper city is provided by the world’s steepest tramline, lovingly referred to by the Bernese as the «Senkeltram» (Plumb Line Tram).
