Disposal in Bern: A Tour through the City’s Inner Workings (StattLand)

Learn why the city stream runs underground and how the hygienic revolution is taking over the city. Find out what the annual market has to offer and why the gasworks are situated on the Aare river.

From the old sewer system to the ARA sewage treatment plant, from the weekly market to the department stores – the tour presents interesting stories about wastewater and drinking water, nutrition, hygiene and light. It’s a tour through the inner workings of the city, complete with clichés about the dark Middle Ages and the clean city.
