For those planning Bern, Switzerland
For most of the next 6 months, Marktgasse, the main shopping avenue from the train station to the older parts of the city is torn up to reset the tram tracks and re-cobble the street. Several trams will not be running and others are re-routed to adjacent points.
There are alternate ways for pedestrian travel, and the covered walkways on Marktgasse are open but more crowded. The weekly markets are open and only slightly inconvenienced by the construction which is underway from 6am – Midnight 7 days a week.
