Busking in Bern
Hitchhiking out of Luzern was impossible. It was raining for 2 days continously. The first day we stayed 4 hours in the cold rain than we gave up and went back to our host. The next day after standing for 2 hours in the cold rain, we decided to take a train to Bern. Freaking expencive! :( We spent more than 70 francs on the tickets. We were cold, wet and dissapointed a bit when we arrived to Bern but the city treated us well! :)
Miserably failed hitchhiking
Busking rules in Bern:
ckick here for the link! (it's in German). Basically it's legal to play on the street without a permit untill:
  • you're not asking directly money from the people(if you put down a hat or instrument case on the ground it's okay)
  • there are less than 2 people in the group
  • you play once in a week
  1. Performances allowed between 11.00 (on Saturday 10.00) and 21.00 (on Thursday 22.00) o' clock. 
  2. You are not allowed to play on Sundays.
  3. Amplifiers are not permitted.
  4. You can play 30 minutes in one spot.
Our Experiance:
sun! :)
and more sun!
When we arrived on Saturday it was already too late to play or to do anything else and we were also in a bad mood because of the crapy hitchhiking experiance and the expensive train. But we were invited for a very delicious Swiss fondue so we had the chance to taste it for the very first time. We ate good and had a great evening :)

So the next day we were well rested. We had just one day to play and look a bit around because we wasted a lot of time trying to get a ride from Luzern to Bern. The weather was much better than before and we were enjoying it a lot! The city is very beautiful but the whole center was under renovation when we arrived. But under every house there are a lot of arches and now they look like a very long tunnel. We played there and it was quite okay.
Bern under construction
The police stopped us once, but they were very polite. They told us that they don't mind if we play on the street but some shops called because on Sunday it is forbidden to play in the whole city. Than they left us alone so we continued playing in a different spot. In the end of the day we still made 100 francs :)

I think it can be a very nice place to busk! Enjoy Switzerland! :)
