    Thank you for topic!
    I go
    I mean we are trying to organise it, but need a tone of tips for Switcherland (as Bern doesnt have many hotels/hostels) and the ticket prices are a bit ouch, i think they are more expensive than Worlds last year and this time you dont get to choose the event you want but buy a ticket for the whole day. ( i think the consipracy is for me to make me watch ice dance) Good thing is that you can see the practices for free and also you have free return train trip from everywhere in the country the day of your ticket, so you can tour a little

    I am definitely right on that conspiracy to force everyone to watch ice dance!

    As one who used to not watch ice dance, I agree with Doris that you should watch some ice dance. Sit down close to ice during practice and notice the breeze as the couples skate by really, really fast. I think ice dancers have probably the fastest skaters of any discipline.

    Seniorita, I sent you a PM about places to stay hoping that a PM might get your attention faster than when you might check this thread again. For those who are attending with 2 or 3 members in their party, since the competition lasts a week, I recommend trying to get a vacation apartment (Ferienwohnung or abbreviated "FeWo"). When I searched on Google for vacation apartments in Bern, I could not find any in the city (I guess it is not a vacation spot) but there were a lot in the Canton of Bern. There are several in the City of Thun (beautifully situated on the Lake of Thun) and it is only 20 minutes by train from Thun to Bern. One web site to look for vacation rentals is: [url]http://chalet.myswitzerland.com/home/[/url], then click on "Bernese Oberland" and look at the list of cities. You can check for the proximity of the cities to Bern on Google Maps. I notice that Steffisburg, right next to Thun also has some possibilities. You should be able to find an apartment for 100 Swiss Francs per night or less that will sleep 2 to 6 people.

I have already booked one place months ago, but now there is one possibility that i might not go. But thank you a lot, I will reply as soon as possible.
