Cultural Tour de Suisse

720 kilometres with train, bus and car. That's the distance I covered yesterday on my small cultural tour de Suisse ;).


The first leg took me to the Musée d'Archéologie in Neuchâtel, which is famous for its exhibition of Celtic artifacts found in the region. Even though the museum displays some very intriguing pieces, the most impressive part of our visit was the frozen pond just outdoors.


Next up was the center of Yverdon-Les-Bains, which featured picturesque old buildings including a Church and a Castle and also hosted an exhibition with art inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. The quality of the pieces displayed ranged from unspectacular to breathtaking and gave an intriguing overview of the legacy that Lovecraft left behind with his groundbreaking stories.


After a "quick" detour home to get the car, I drove to Thun to attend my last concert of this year. Des Königs Halunken, the only Swiss medieval rock band, played in the Late Night Event Bar in Thun. The concert was marked by mishaps: missed cues, slips of the tongue and instruments that weren't audible (especially the didgeridoo). Nevertheless, they took these problems in their stride and did the best they could to entertain us. And entertained we were :) and so when Des Königs Halunken finally left the stage there were loud cries for encores, proving that the audience forgave them these mishaps and had a good time.
