Impressions 1st August 2023

Switzerland celebrated quite a special anniversary in 2023: 175 years Federal Constitution! It was signed in 1848 when Switzerland became the democratic country we know today. In the same year, Bern was elected as the capital. In honour of these two anniversaries, we added an extra day to the festivities. Check out the video for some impressions of 31 July 2023 and have fun!
