E Ligu Lehm – Tour of the Matte District

The Matte or ‘black’ district is the oldest part of the city of Bern and has many stories to tell. Some of these can be heard on our tour.

Rudolf Lindt created his famous Lindt chocolate here and Casanova spent some enjoyable times in its bathhouses. Meanwhile, the residents developed their very own secret language, some of which is still spoken today. Come and find out what the Matte has to offer!
