Hello, it is me again. I editet the page a bit. My english isn't very good, so it would be very nice, if anyone would correct my mistakes. thank you :-) Niceli 11:50, 7 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I clean it up fairly well, but there is one part though I am having difficulty with. "from the quarter "Wabern" up to the Gurten" - Up to the Gurten is clear enough, but the quarter "Wabern" is a little harder. My best guess would be that Wabern is a section of town so "the quarter Wabern" would be much like "the French quarter" (in New Orleans) in terms of them both being the name of a specific part or neighborhood in the city... It is a little hard to try and clear that section up without a little more detain on the meaning of quarter Wabern. -- Creol(talk) 12:38, 7 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Wabern is a certain quarter/district of the town. --Eptalon 12:40, 7 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]
German WP says that Wabern is a suburb of Bern. As it borders Bern, it can be seen as a quarter of Bern, of course, but I think suburb would be closer. --rimshottalk 12:42, 7 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]
  • From Google's translation of the German WP, it seems the best translation may be something along the lines of:

looks great to me --rimshottalk 13:21, 7 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, I was incorrect: Wabern is a city or village in the agglomration; politically, it is not part of Bern. --Eptalon 13:29, 7 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]
  • I cheated and went and took a look at the Wabern, Gurten, and the tram inbetween them (Google earth is so useful at times - 46.55.30N, 7.26.30E ). Gurten does indeed seem to be a hill and not the mountains, Wabern appears a seperate town but atleast I got the by the river part correct.
"from the town of Wabern, which is to the south of Bern on the river Aare, up to the top of Gurten, a large hill just south of the city"

Hi, thank you very much for correcting it. Wabern isn't a town, it's nearly like a village, but very small (has maybee 2000 human in it). It is like a part of Bern. Niceli 12:15, 9 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]
