The geohash is at a farm house near the village of Zimmerwald, which is itself 10 km South of Berne.
TheOneRing - by public transport
At the village of Zimmerwald there is located the Zimmerwald observatory which is part of my work centre. So I know the area very well. I decided to go by bus to Zimmerwald and then walk the last 2 km to the hashpoint. The view was very nice, but the roads were quite slippery due to the snowfall in the last days.
The hashpoint itself was located at a farm house and was easy to reach. The dog there was very alert what I was doing there. It did nothing but barking several times. I suspected that the temperature was low enough to get the Frozen Geohash achievement I brought a thermometer and I was right to do so.
After taking the other usual photographs I chose a different way back and walked to the village of Belp, which rewarded me with another wonderful view of the countryside and extended to the Alps (see below). Then I took the train back to Berne.
