The river has a beautiful blue-green color, and runs under several picturesque bridges. It also goes over a dam, with a restaurant on the edge of it. There is a walking path next to it in many places.

In summer...after the water reaches seventeen or so degrees the good folk of Bern enjoy floating down the quick flowing river in ‘floaties’. The aqua colour of the clean mountain water is what strikes one most on first impression. You can walk along the banks, do as the locals do and lie peacefully soaking up the sunshine or walk across one of the bridges and view from above.
