Langenthal Nightlife

    This was intended to be a provisional summer bar only. Now it's a year-round nightlife stop in the center of Langenthal, in an old, rather run-down building - but containing a nice interior. The bar is a good place to have a few drinks. Occasional concerts, karaoke nights, fashion shows, etc. Very easy-going place and if you ever lived in Langenthal you're sure to meet old companions.

    Dress Code: Casual. Sometimes theme parties with according dress code.

Langenthal Off The Beaten Path

    The area around Langenthal is one town after another - not many kilometres between towns. We borrowed bikes, and went on our own tours.

    One nice thing about Switzerland is that all paths are well signed. It is pretty hard to get lost - you may not find the fastest road to get back, but you will always find your way home.

    Note near Langenthal, the land is pretty flat. This is not the case for most of Switzerland.

    The graveyards have an unfortunate rule in Switzerland. You are only allowed to have the gravestone up for a limited number of years. They they bury someone else there. Back in the late 70's, we went to visit the gravesite of a recently deceased relative. twenty years later, her gravestone was no longer in the cemetary, and someone else was in the same spot.

    That is hard for Canadians to get used to. Even in Winnipeg, I can go to an old cemetary, and look through the gravestones from the early 1900's. I guess there is just not enough land in Switzerland to keep a gravesite for ever.

    Back in the 1970's, every town had a casere (I'm not sure how to spell it from my childhood Swiss-German, but a cheese-making-dairy). This picture is from the one in Bleienbach - a small village outside Langenthal.

    Back then, every town had a casere because they could not ship milk very far. Now stainless steel milk trucks transport milk further, and there are many fewer diaries.

    Favorite thing: Langenthal is in a good location for travelling to other places. It was a while ago that I was there (1983) but I remember it as a clean tidy place with nice people. I was staying at a friend`s place and travelling to Lucerne, Basel, Berne and Zurich by train. I really enjoyed my time in Langenthal.
