When the Roman sappers built the first bridge over the Aare around 20 AD, they certainly noticed the beautiful landscape at the foot of the Weissenstein. In these 2,000 years, a city has developed along the Aare, in the heart of which the various urban planning epochs are still very clearly visible. Embedded in a varied environment, our town has developed into a regional centre where it is very easy to live, work, learn, eat and drink and enjoy a wide range of cultural activities at a high level.
