Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide us. We will be traveling from California, to Paris then on to Switzerland towards end of May 05....any suggestions on train travel from Paris, I suppose into Bern. We have reservation in Thun at Hotel Freienhof/Best Western(any comments regarding hotel -
4 nights) so would have to get there from train station in Bern. I am interested in doing some genealogy work in the Thun area. It looks like a beautiful little city...what is the population? We are thinking about renting a car if we come into train station in Bern as there are some smaller towns in the area we would like to visit....any suggestions? How far is the drive from Thun to Bern? If we do not rent a car what transportation could we expect? Any suggestions on activities, eating suggestions and sights in the area would be greatly appreciated.
Feel free to contacat me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like.
Since we don't speak any german do you think we will manage OK? Can't wait for those chocolates and cheeses!
Thanks again for any recommendations you can provide....
