Switzerland, Zollikofen/Bern, Part 1

We arrived at Zurich airport on Sunday morning and immediate transferred to a small town "Zollikofen" where my husband has 2 days meeting there.

1) We check in to Hotel Gasthof Tiefenau (http://www.gasthof-tiefenau.ch/hotel/showlinx.asp?lang=d)

- It was not a luxury hotel but just 3 stars hotel ( for the same price you can easily get a 5 stars hotel in Malaysia), but the room is clean, cosy and got "kampung" feel.


a. The external view of the hotel is same like the old Swiss design.








































b. A very antique radio player in the room. But not sure this player is working or not, I didn't try it.



















2) Since we have half day free time in the Sunday afternoon, we took 5 minutes train to a nearby big city " Bern" for walk around.

















- You can easily get the snow mountain view from any corner.













































p/s I will be back on next post for what I eat in Zollikofen and Bern.

Bakeling, too many photos I took, every corner also nice, until my camera no battery lor. But I can not post all the photos on the blog, too time consuming.

Nancy, agreed with you, visit to Europe is to see their old old buildings, all are very nice and awesome.

I like Switzerland, it's such a beautiful and peaceful place! Great series of photos! Great scenery definitely. I really like the buildings there, historical and unique. Unlike here in US, every city looks almost the same.
