Büren – Another Swiss town with a (in?)famous timber bridge

Last weekend I happened to drive through the city of Büren in Canton Bern (Switzerland). Much to my surprise, before entering the village there was a beautiful bridge, where the road crossed the Aare river. Later I learned that the wooden bridge had been set on fire and burnt down in April 1989. It has been alleged that this was perpetrated by the Jurassic separatists of the Béliers movement. The bridge was rebuilt in 1991.

After crossing the bridge I drove through a beautiful ancient small town center with lots of well restored and maintained old houses.

When I stopped to take some pictures I encountered a couple of members of a Moped Club who happily gave me permission to take some pictures of them.
