Guild member David Bähler, author of articles on Bernese timber framing in Timber Framing 106 and 110 and a frequent contributor on the subject in our online forums, will lead an 11-day tour of wooden buildings in Switzerland, tentatively scheduled for the May 4th - 14th, 2015. The tour will start first thing on Monday, May 4th so attendees will need to arrive into Bern the day before.
Participants will fly to Zurich and then take the train to meet up in Bern to start the tour. For rail travel in Switzerland, you will purchase a Swiss Pass (included in tour fee) which includes unlimited travel on all trains, buses, and boats and also access to most museums in the country, including Ballenberg and the museums of castles Thun and Spiez. Most large groups touring the country use this.
More details will be coming.
