Campaign 2019

«Aare You Safe?» this summer

Image caption:

Swimming in the Aare is clearly very popular in Bern and all around Switzerland. However it's not only the swimmers who enjoy our river but also more and more  people on rubber dinghies and other small boats floating down the Aare. This is the reason why this year's «Aare You Safe?» campaign focuses on the so-called «Aareböötle» -  the floating on the river Aare.

The campaign initialized by the City of Bern is being supported by several important partners: the Bern Cantonal Police, the Swiss Lifesaving Society (SLRG), the Swiss Competence and Coordination Centre for Accident Prevention BFU and Bern Welcome as well as our partner cities and communities Thun, Münsingen, Muri-Gümligen
