Bonne fin de semaine,
Hi, Magda, "Bear", is there anything to do with Bern? Beautiful photo, Karin
Nice to hear from you. In reply to your question, here is an information foun and swissworld.org :
**There are several theories as to the derivation of the name. It may come from Brenodor, the name of a Celtic settlement built on the site.
However, the popular story has that Bern was named after the bear (German: Bär), the first animal to be killed by its founder, Duke Berchtold V von Zähringen, when he went hunting near his new city.
Bears have a long association with the town, which has had a bear pit since the end of the 15th century.**
Thanks for your visit.
Hi Magda, thanks for info. Karin
Hi Magda, I was too at this Bear in Bern, the bears are actually 4, but this is most loving. Karin.
Hello, young Lady!
Hope everything went well during your stay.
Of course, they are four bears surrounding the monument. The good news is that they are still there. ;)
