Brugg Things to Do

  • Spotting grave yards

    On a trip I usually go and check out the local cemetary. I don't know why. It is just some sort of urge and curiousity which leads me. Here is Brugg's nice and rather hidden last resting yard. Notice the tomb stones are flat on the ground and not standing up-right! Unusual!

  • talk a walk out in the streets now - sr

    I suggest you take a walk along the river Aare.Start for instance your digestive tour from one of the bridges north of the city centre and walk on. Have a look at the lively flora and fauna and certainly at the nice architecture like the shown bridge. On top the trains from Bâle arrive to Brugg and underneath pedestrians may cross the river.

  • The river Aare

    This is one of my favourites. It doesn't matter what time of year you look at her - I prefer seeing her as a she - she is never the same. Constantly changing her forms, colour and mood...She can be really moody too. At times she gently flows in her nice bed, but sometimes she tries to break out from her restraining boundaries and wants to free...

    In this very stimulating house you can attend live music concerts like jazz etc. or meet other culturally orientated people. A cultural foundations is concerned with connecting people within the Salzhaus in many different ways.

    On Sunday mornigs you will hear a wild mixture of different church bell hummings all over the city. There are two churches in Brugg, the cathlic's and protestant's (in front of the pic is the protestant's) - they do ring their bells loud. If not accustomed to the noise you will be disturbed by that cacophony and be awaken!

    Now there are additional sounds wich will draw your attention immediately, like the lighter bells wich indicate the time of several clocks in the city.

    The first quarter is one strike, half an hour two, three quarters three. Every full hour will have as much strikes the hour is...

Brugg Off The Beaten Path

  • The St.Galler bread

    Eating is the activity I stress here.My off the beaten path is a real in-sider tip. As in shopping section mentioned I love this bread, so I could not resist the temptation and take a photograph of one delicious object in question.It is really that good that I almost would rank it higher than finnish rye bread, and htat means something.

  • Güggelgässli

    This is the narrowest-most alley in Brugg. It is partially coverd and really uncanny... Situated in the old-town it is easily reached from the Schultheiss-Allee side. When you walk the street downwards it'll appear half-way on your left-side.

  • The Hexenplatz

    At the Hexenplatz (Witch square) you have a fantastic view over the entire city of Brugg and may see on clear (Fön-) days as far as to the Alps. What a stunning view - indeed.See the Black Tower again - in the right centre of the picture.

  • Galerie Falkengasse

    There is this small litle gallery on the other side of the Aare river, if you look out of our balcony.I confess, I have not been there, but would like to go there. The problem seems to the opening hours. Apparently they are open on evenings around 8 and 10 p.m., very strange time I think. This fact makes it even more intresting.I have heard they...
